Question About Feed Mills That Use Extruders

 

Poh Yong Thong (poyoto2002@yahoo.com), 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?
