Question About Feed Mills That Use Extruders


Poh Yong Thong (, who has his own shrimp farm in Malaysia and has visited many shrimp farms in Thailand and Indonesia in his role as technical service manager for PT Gold Coin Indonesia, a feed company, asks:


Do you know how many feed mills are using extruders for the production of shrimp feed?  I asked feed-industry players in Asia this question, and they said extruders are hardly ever used for producing shrimp feed in Asia.  I remember way back in the 1990s, there was a shrimp feed mill in Indonesia using an extruder.  The water stability of its feed was good, but the mill did not survive.  I heard that there are some shrimp feed millers using extruders in Latin America.  Can you help me find out more information about them?
