Fish Meal

Fish Meal

Fish meal can be defined as a solid product obtained by removing most of the water and some or all of the oil from fish or fish waste. It is made by cooking, pressing, drying and grinding of fish or fish waste. Four or five tonnes of fish are needed to manufacture one tonne of dry fishmeal. Fish meal is a nutrient-rich and high protein supplement feed ingredient that stores well, and is used primarily in diets for domestic animals, like poultry, pigs and farmed fish, and sometimes as a high-quality organic fertilizer.

Virtually any fish or shellfish can be used to make fish meal. The nutritional value of proteins from vertebrate fish differs little from one species to another. The species we choose is in large concentrations to give a high catching rate, with a high fat content are more profitable(because the fat in fish is held at the expense of water and not at the expense of protein).Besides, the total abundance of long lived species varies less from year to year.

Any complete diet must contain some protein, but the nutritional value of the protein relates directly to its amino acid composition and digestibility. The amino acid profile of fishmeal is what makes this feed ingredient so attractive as a protein supplement. Our high-quality fishmeal contains no lower than 65% crude protein by weight. Another very important reason why fishmeal is sought after as an ingredient in aquaculture diets is because it contains certain compounds that make the feed more acceptable and agreeable to the taste. It is thought the non-essential amino acid glutamic acid is one of the compounds that imparts to fishmeal its palatability.

Fishmeal is considered to be a moderately rich source of vitamins of the B-complex especially cobalamine (B12), niacin, choline, pantothenic acid, and riboflavin. Fishmeal in diets increase feed efficiency and growth through better food palatability and enhances nutrient uptake, digestion and absorption. The balanced amino acid composition of fishmeal complements and provides synergistic effects with other animal and vegetable proteins in the diet to promote fast growth and reduce feeding costs.

High quality fishmeal provides a balanced amount of all essential amino aids, phospholipids and fatty acids required for optimum development, growth and reproduction especially of larvae and broodstock. The nutrients in fishmeal also aid in disease resistance by boosting and helping to maintain a healthy functional immune system. It also allows for formulation of nutrient-dense diets, which promote optimal growth. Incorporation of fishmeal into diets of aquatic animals helps to reduce pollution from the waste water effluent by providing greater nutrient digestibility.
