Competition is heating up between alternative ingredients producers to supply the aquaculture feed industry as it looks to move away from a dependence on traditional ingredients.

ADM International Business Manager Peter Bergstrom said he is "quite confident" that aqua feed will develop significantly in the next five years.

“The lack of availability of certain ingredients such as fish meal and fish oil among others is forcing the industry to find new avenues and over time and with so much growth in the aqua industry there will be a lot of research to find better and better raw material sources which are needed in larger and large volume,” Bergstrom told IntraFish.

Strides forward made by alternative feed suppliers are detailed in IntraFish's new industry report "The Future of Aquaculture Feed," out now.
