In search of an alternative protein source

Pressure groups question the use of fishmeal in aquafeeds on ethical grounds. This has forced the feed industry to more seriously examine the use of alternative protein sources during the formulation process. Successful substitution of fishmeal with more sustainable proteins could act to limit or eliminate the aquafeed industry's dependence upon uncertain fishmeal supplies.
