Posted by rohan on February 22nd, 2018

Global Fish Feed Market was worth USD 97.43 billion in 2017 and estimated to be growing at a CAGR of 9.78%, to reach USD 155 billion by 2022. Fish Feed is an important part of modern commercial aquaculture, providing the balanced nutrition needed by farmed fish. The feeds, in the form of pellets or granules, provide the nutrition in a concentrated and a stable form, enabling the fish to feed efficiently and grow at their full potential.

Traditionally two of the most important ingredients have been fish oil and fishmeal. The development of dry pelleted fish feeds to date has two main themes. One theme is on improving digestibility and refining the balance of nutrients so as to match the needs of the different species of fish more precisely at different periods of development. The other type is to improve the sustainability of the ingredients used. This is being attained mainly by identifying additional sustainable sources of ingredients, in particular to reduce the need for fish oil and fishmeal. Improving the efficiency of feeding also assists sustainability.
