Kampachi Farms are stocking a feed trial with Nenue, a Hawaiian herbivorous reef fish, to test their growth on a formulated diet without fishmeal or fish oil. The farm is also exploring the use of Nenue gut microbiome in seaweed biodigesters.
These trials are developed under KRUMBS – Kyphosid Ruminant Microbial Bioconversion of Seaweeds project that aimes to provide highly efficient process for converting marine macroalgae seaweed into a variety of bioproducts including biofuels. The team will work with its partners to isolate, optimize and deploy microbial consortia and individual microorganisms capable of rapidly digesting macroalgal biomass in a highly scalable way.
