The Fishmeal Conundrum
The view that fishmeal and fish oil will limit future growth of aquaculture is mistaken
The continuing growth in world aquaculture production, particularly the growth in salmon, shrimp and marine species, and the rising price of fishmeal and fish oil, have led many to believe that the future growth of aquaculture will be limited by the availability of fishmeal and fish oil; that the drive to produce more fishmeal and fish oil to meet the demand will result in the over-fishing of feed fisheries; that the only solution is to substitute with alternative sources which will reduce costs, allow for production growth, improve the “sustainability” of aquaculture and even reduce contaminant levels in the feed. This view is, however, mistaken.
Andrew Jackson, technical director of IFFO, argues the future of fishmeal and fishoil in the latest issue of Feed Technology Update, published today.
