Duration:60 minutes


Formulated feeds are an important component of the farming process for a number of key aquaculture species.


However, producers are no longer focused only on feed conversion in relation to fish feed R&D.


We will hear how feed experts are trying to understand the ways nutritional components affect immune responses and gut microbiota in fish.


We also get insights into the advantages and disadvantages of using novel protein raw materials such as bacterial meals or insect meal in aquaculture feeds.


The experts will report as well on the usefulness of tools such as mathematical modelling and nutrigenomics in feed formulation.
