Shrimp consume an estimated 1/3 of global fishmeal. Finding alternative ingredients and feeds for shrimp is critical for ocean health and for the ability of shrimp aquaculture to be sustained in the future. The F3 – Future of Fish Feed will convene a panel of major feed companies and producers to discuss the latest trends in fishmeal and fish oil replacement for shrimp. Panelists will discuss the latest research breakthroughs, challenges, and potential for totally eliminating wild-caught feed ingredients in shrimp diets.

The webinar will take place on July 15, 2021 at 5 am GMT/6 am London/1 pm Beijing.

A Q&A session with representatives from Aqua Cognoscenti, Charoen Pokphand Foods Public Company, Gold Coin Group, Grobest Group, JAPFA Group, Minh Phu AquaMekong Co. will follow panelist presentations.

The alternative protein sector for aquafeeds is growing rapidly. However, farm-raised crustaceans, including shrimp, still consume roughly 31% of global fishmeal production. Shrimp farmers worldwide are vulnerable to the fluctuating prices of fishmeal while simultaneously managing evolving disease crises. Novel ingredients are coming to the forefront to provide more stable sources of protein for shrimp feeds while also enhancing survival and immunity.

This event is part of a year-long webinar series hosted by the F3 Team. The webinars are free and open to everyone. For more information and to register, visit
