  • Ramakanta Nayak, Sales and marketing manager Aquaculture at Novus International introduced the company's seminar "Aquaculture to feed the world by 2050". "Asia is the fishbowl of the world," he said. Of the total of 55 million tonnes of aquaculture production in the world East Asia produces 40.8 million tonnes or 74%. China is the largest producer. The share of cultured fish shows a steady increase, whereas wild catch is in decline.

  • With increasing demand there lies a big responsibility ahead for the aqua industry. "Aquaculture will need to produce an additional 29 million tones of food fish to maintain current consumption rates by the year 1030," said Jesus Venero, Global aquafeed and nutrition specialist at Novus. Apart from nutrition, genetic improvement lays way behind for example poultry, he added.

  • Addison Lawrence, AgriLife Research, Texas A&M University, elaborated on the use of zinc and copper in shrimp. "In the presence of phytic acid (phytate) the zinc requirement is increased six fold," he said. Soybeans, which are loaded with phytic acid, and are used a lot in plant based diets, one should take this into consideration when formulating for trace minerals. “With chelated trace minerals less copper and zinc is needed in the feeds and since these are bound to a methionine molecule there is also an amino acid bonus," Lawrence said.

  • "Nutrition for fish can improve a lot, since relatively little research is carried out and information is often kept inside companies or institutes," said Lukas Manomaitis, Technical director Aquaculture at the American Soybean Association, Singapore office. He said that soybean is a good raw material for fish feed and that certain shortcomings can be levelled by using other plant based ingredients. He further elaborated on several alternative ingredients, such as corn, wheat by-products, palm kernel meal, cassava copra meal and copra meal. "Fish farmers are reluctant to buy fish feed that doesn't smell fishy, but they don't have to consume it. It is up to the fish to decide," Manomaitis said.

  • Dr Chinnadurai Sugumar of Kemin Industries (Asia) discussed more in detail the opportunities for ingredient substitutes in poultry feed at Feedtech Croptech. Since DDGS is has become abundant available this by-product is pushed into the market. "In poultry we recommend not to add more than 6% to broiler feed, and maximum 15% in grower/finisher feeds and layer feeds. Extra lysine needs to be added and enzymes are highly beneficial due to the high NSP content of DDGS," he said.
