Traditionally aquaculture professionals have given more importance to hatchery feeds as they deal with highly sensitive larval/fry and post-larval stages of fish and shrimp. With the growing intensification of aquaculture systems and moving indoors, there has arisen the need for feeding specialty diets for the nursery stages as well. To accomplish this, they have to move over from standard pelleted and crumbled feeds to high quality complete extruded diets.
Micro aquafeeds can be classified as those feeds which fall in the size range of 0.5mm to 1.2mm dia. To make these feeds, a series of meticulous steps must be followed right from the selection of high quality ingredients to specific grinding, sifting, mixing, precision twin screw extrusion and optimal drying process. Dr. Ramesh Gangatharan. Technical Sales Advisor at Wenger Manufacturing, will tell delegates at Aquafeed Horizons Asia 2018 how advanced computer controls, variable frequency drives, unique die designs and specially selected dryer screens all contribute to a smooth process at high production capacities. In-line moisture and density monitoring systems can be fixed at critical points to monitor the production process so as to minimize production of out of spec product and to have a final product that is uniform in size, shape and density, he will explain.
Feeding micro extruded aquafeed will help the aquatic animals in the nursery phase attain the optimal nutrition, good health and better growth performance with the best FCR.
The 11th Aquafeed Horizons Asia will take place once again at BITEC, Bangkok, along side the region\'s biggest and most important trade show for the feed insuatry, Victam Asia, providing delegates with a unique opportunity to see the latest in equipment, ingredients and services for the sector.
Aquafeed Horions conferences focus on practical advances in feed formulation and technology and is the established meeting place for professionals from aquaculture feedmills, and other stake holders in the industry from around the globe.
Online registration is required and you are urges to reserve your place without delay, while places are available.
