AFFRIS is intended to disseminate the global information on commercially important aquaculture feed and feed ingredients and nutritional profile of globally important selected aquaculture species.
The information system will contain:
- Aquaculture feed and fertilizer resources: source, location, availability (seasonal and regional), utilization (human use, domestic animal and aquatic species);
- Nutrient composition of feed ingredients including amino acid, fatty acid and minerals and information on toxicity and ant-nutritional factors inhibiting their use; and
- Aquaculture species information including their nutrient requirements and husbandry practices.
