Feed represents the largest cost of production in aquaculture, and there are very few aspects of aquaculture that aren’t directly or indirectly influenced by feeds and feeding practices. Growth and efficiency, broodstock performance and gamete quality, product value, water quality and effluent management, budgets and business planning, environmental impacts, etc.—what you feed and how you feed it affects virtually everything from egg to plate.
In this webinar, we will discuss the basic nutritional requirements of fish and how these differ from terrestrial livestock, attributes of feeds and how to choose the best one for your operation, and feeding strategies to maximize efficiency. Special topics, including fish meal/fish oil sparing and omega-3 enriched products will also be discussed.
Please join us at this free National Aquaculture Association webinar to learn more about the practical aspects of fish nutrition, aquafeeds, and feeding practices.
Date: November 19th at 3 p.m. EST
