The Future of Aquafeeds provides a comprehensive view on the current state of knowledge and the challenges and opportunities associated with development of various alternative aquaculture feeds. The findings, recommendations, and research priorities contained in the report will help identify and prioritize new and ongoing research to be conducted and funded by NOAA, USDA, and other partners under the Initiative. The purpose of the joint NOAA-USDA Initiative is to accelerate the development of alternative dietary ingredients that will reduce the amount of fishmeal and fish oil in aquaculture feeds while maintaining the important human health benefits of farmed seafood.
