Gilberto Hernandez-Gonzales, Aquaculture Manager N&CA, Nutriad will explain to delegates at the Aquafeed Mexico Workshop that one of the most important feeding strategies to tackle these complex problems is feed management. Feed is the most practical, and sometimes the only way (as in shrimp), to support and improve the health status in the animals. Nowadays feed must not only cover nutritional requirements for better animal performance, it must go beyond and bring functional properties to the feed to improve metabolic or physiological process, microflora modulation, etc. These functional feeds are positioned as part of a preventive strategy to reduce risk and impact of disease in aquaculture.
Gilberto Hernandez-Gonzales graduated in marine biology from Universidad Autónoma de Baja California Sur and a Masters degree in Aquaculture from DICTUS of Universidad of Sonora, specializing in shrimp nutrition. He has more than 15 years’ research and practical experience in the aquaculture industry. Since 2011 Gilberto has been a member of Nutriad’s aquaculture team, responsible for the North and Central America region.
