From wood to fish feed: How to transform forestry residues into animal feed

From Phys.Org – October 22, 2019

The production process of ingredients for fish feed, including fishmeal and plant-based protein alternatives such as soybean, has significant implications for land and water use and greenhouse gas emissions. It contributes to climate change and biodiversity loss. With such challenges and rising concerns over food security, the use of sustainable sources of protein in animal feed, including fish feed, is becoming more appealing. Supported by the EU-funded SYLFEED project, researchers and industrial partners have completed scientific studies demonstrating the effectiveness of SylPro as an alternative protein ingredient for use in aquafeed…Link to full article from Phys.Org

The juvenile Atlantic salmon study was conducted by Matis Icelandic Food & Biotech R&D as part of the SYLFEED project, and it was designed to demonstrate the nutritional performance of Arbiom’s protein product (SylPro®) compared to conventional plant and animal protein sources.

“These findings indicate that SylPro can be used to replace fish meal or plant-based proteins in feed for juvenile Atlantic salmon, a crucial developmental stage, and deliver equivalent nutritional performance as conventional protein sources up to 20 percent inclusion level,” said Alexandra Leeper, PhD candidate from Matis.
