Survey of nutrient levels in commercial shrimp feeds in India

Since 2013, Nutriad has surveyed the composition of commercial shrimp feeds in India. Feeds have been analyzed on a range of nutritional parameters. The present study investigated the different nutritional strategies in commercial shrimp feeds during 2016, when the number of shrimp feed suppliers increased sharply. Feed samples of 8 major brands were collected in the market and analyzed for proximate composition as well as a number of essential nutrients (amino acids, phospholipids, cholesterol, n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids).
