Feed and Genetics
Due to scarcity, shrimp feed manufacturers around the world are confronted with rapidly rising costs of feed ingredients. These costs and the scarcity of raw materials forces feed manufacturers to change feed formulation and/or to increase the price of their products. At the same time, the rising cost of conventional feed ingredients may accelerate the adoption of novel feed ingredients which could be a benefit for the sustainability of farmed shrimp. In this seminar you will learn about short and long term trends in shrimp feed formulation and feed management. We will also look into the developments in shrimp genetics, which may also have a positive impact on the efficiency and risks of shrimp farming operations worldwide.
