Marine ingredients in feed -- namely fishmeal and fish oil -- are here to stay, and the conversation needs to shift from talking about replacements to how to work together with novel ingredients, Enrico Bachis, market research director at IFFO, told IntraFish.

“I do not like the term 'alternatives' as I consider it to be misleading," he said. “There is a lot of talk of replacing marine ingredients in feed but, as the FAO supports, these ingredients are and probably always will be best for the job.”
