Alternative ingredients in aquaculture feed have seen exciting developments in recent years, with creative new players, enthusiastic investment and significant breakthroughs.
There is a raft of alternatives to marine ingredients that are showing potential and will hopefully one day offer viable economics and scale to supplement ingredients such as fishmeal and oil, which are produced from wild fish and offer limited opportunity for production growth.
