Fantastic, absolutely brilliant when we see the younger generation getting involved with innovations like aquaponics and taking issues of food security seriously.

Fish feed for sustainable aquaculture

Fish feed for sustainable aquaculture | Wellington Aquaponics | Scoop.it
Fish feed has undergone a major transformation in the last 10 years. Pictured is a plant-derived trial feed produced by the APC for rainbow trout. Norwegian researchers have been leading an international effort to make aquaculture more sustainable. In 10 years they have revolutionised fish feed.

The Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC) was among the initial 13 Norwegian Centres of Excellence (SFF) established. After ten years, its activities as an SFF centre are now drawing to a close. The centre was established to generate the knowledge needed to be able to replace fishmeal in aquaculture feeds.

After ten years, the proportion of fish-based ingredients has been reduced to roughly ten per cent, while fish farmers have doubled their production.

With fisheries catching at, or above, sustainable levels, the need to find a sustainable plant-derived fish feed is imperative, and I think that anyone involved in aquaculture or aquaponics has a vested interest in observing these developments.
