Shrimp Feeds from Fish Wastes

 

Researchers at the Federal Rural University of the Semiarid Region (UFERSAR) have developed a new shrimp feed that contains fish silage instead of fishmeal.  The fish silage is derived from fish wastes that are usually discarded.  UFERSAR Fishing Engineering professors, Filipe Ribeiro and Alex Augusto Gonçalves, emphasize that the silage is ten times cheaper than fishmeal.  The project began two years ago and the researchers have tested the new feed in clear water and biofloc systems.  They are currently preparing their reports on the project.
