Find out, how phytogenics contribute to solve your challenge in aquaculture production:
Reach out for a sustainable source of protein
The resource-saving production of protein due to a worldwide growing consumer demand confronts the industry with many challenges.
In last decades “aquafarming” and the establishment of aquaculture emerged to an efficient system coping with the special situation of protein production from aquatic species and evolved as a powerful counterstrategy against overfishing of the oceans. Thus, a fast growth in this industry is not surprising at all; in 2016 aquaculture production reached similar levels as capture fishery systems.
Phytogenic support to overcome main challenges
Nevertheless, although this relatively young business sector has improved substantially within the last years, the aqua industry still faces severe challenges. The industry strives for enhanced growth rates and feed efficiency, high survival rates and improved reproductive success to keep profitability as high as possible.
Doubtlessly, in all these aspects phytogenic feed additives in aquaculture can contribute to improve the situation, resulting in benefits for animals, consumers and producers. A broad variety of different phytogenic substances allows to aim for different targets: For example, an enhanced nutrient digestibility will increase performance of fish and shrimp – here, phytogenics in aquaculture can kill two birds with one stone: less emissions directly counteract the environmental pollution and improve the feed conversion of animals, respectively.
