The Future of Aquatic Protein: Implications for Protein Sources in Aquaculture Diets

The Future of Aquatic Protein: Implications for Protein Sources in Aquaculture Diets

Approximately 70% of the aquatic-based production of animals is fed aquaculture, whereby animals are provided with high-protein aquafeeds. Currently, aquafeeds are reliant on fish meal and fish oil sourced from wild-captured forage fish. However, increasing use of forage fish is unsustainable and, because an additional37.4

The Sustainability Conundrum of Fishmeal Substitution by Plant Ingredients in Shrimp Feeds

The Sustainability Conundrum of Fishmeal Substitution by Plant Ingredients in Shrimp Feeds

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,
