Feed management, from buying the correct feed and proper feeding rates to properly storing feed, is essential to managing fish health and growth.


Excellent feed managers not only save money by not wasting feed, they also optimize production potential on their farms. Every farm will likely have a different feed management strategy as production criteria like feeding rates and growth rates will be impacted by species selection, production system, environmental conditions, among other things.


Proper feed management should be implemented as part of an overall best management practices plan. The following material can be used as a starting point for getting involved in aquaculture.
