A newly constructed aquafeed plant, the first in Cambodia to produce high quality fish feed, will start production in June. The plant will incorporate U.S. soy into fish feed for the ASA WISHH Commercialization of Aquaculture for Sustainable Trade (CAST) Cambodia project.
CAST, a USDA Food for Progress funded project, will accelerate production of high-demand fish species for the Cambodian market and develop a lasting aquaculture industry. The five-year CAST project is a prime example of WISHH’s enterprise-driven development approach. A key aspect of the project strengthens local production of high-quality feed and fish. CAST makes it possible for Cambodia’s private sector and universities to work closely with U.S. soybean growers and businesses, as well as academic and non-governmental organizations.
