Farmed fish feed is specially formulated to contain all the essential nutrients they need to keep them healthy and growing and maintain the human health benefits of seafood consumption. Fish meal is a natural and well-balanced source of high-quality protein that is used in food for other species of fish and is an essential ingredient in pet food.
As ingredients in aquaculture feed, fish meal and fish oil supply essential amino acids and fatty acids reflected in the normal diet of fish. Fish oil is a major natural source of the healthy omega-3 fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
The producer of fish meal is met with the challenge of keeping oxidation at a minimum so that their product can arrive at the Fish Feed or Pet Food plant in an excellent state. This can be a challenge as often their customer may be another country and can take several months to arrive at their location.
