In 2021, Alltech conducted a survey across the Asia Pacific region to get an indicator of the mycotoxin risk in aquaculture. Almost 200 samples were collected from Bangladesh, China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam and were tested utilizing our Alltech 37+® analytical laboratories or locally using the Alltech RAPIREAD® system, utilizing Neogen lateral-flow technology. Samples combined complete feed and the most commonly used aquafeed raw materials. Most of the raw materials, such as corn, wheat and soybean, were imported from either Europe or the Americas.
The top 5 most prevalent mycotoxins found in the data analyzed were type-B trichothecenes, fumonisins, emerging mycotoxins, zearalenone and aflatoxin.
