From waste to feed: Dietary utilisation of bacterial protein from fermentation of agricultural wastes in African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) production and health

Simon Davies and colleagues in Nigeria led by Dr Ayodeji Adeoye are moving the sustainable agenda forward to utilising Single Cell Protein Microbial biomass from bioconversion of organic vegetable waste! Literally from waste to feed for fish! In this case the African catfish (Clarias gariepinus)

The Sustainability Conundrum of Fishmeal Substitution by Plant Ingredients in Shrimp

The Sustainability Conundrum of Fishmeal Substitution by Plant Ingredients in Shrimp

Aquaculture is central in meeting expanding global demands for shrimp consumption. Consequently, increasing feed use is mainly responsible for the overall environmental impact of aquaculture production. Significant amounts of fishmeal are included in shrimp diets, causing dependency on finite marine resources. Driven by economic incentives,
