Soybean meal costs less than most animal meals, including fish meal. Reducing feed cost is critical to improving efficiency and maintaining sustainability in aquaculture operations.
Because the nutrient requirements of farmed fish and shellfish are so complex, each feed ratio is formulated based on the individual species’ needs. Most farm-raised fish and shellfish can easily digest soymeal, which helps the fish more efficiently transform ingested protein into body weight.
Soybean meal provides a consistent product to fish farmers, which in turn allows farmers to supply consumers, chefs, and others with fish and shrimp of consistent quality, size, and supply.
