Are Plant Based Salmon Feeds Lacking in Nutrients?

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Seafood News] by Amanda Buckle - October 12, 2017

Commercial salmon feed formulas contain more than 70% of plant ingredients – but that’s not how it’s always been. Ten to 15 years ago these formulas were composed of fishmeal and fish oil.

Fishmeal and fish oil provided salmon with the appropriate protein needed for farmed salmon to thrive, but since it was coming from wild caught fish, it was criticized from a sustainability perspective. Fish farms around the world have since turned to plant proteins that are based on wheat, corn, peas, bean and soya concentrates. However, studies show that these plant-based salmon feeds may be ...

Norway, Japan Begin Offshore Salmon Farming

SEAFOODNEWS.COM [Jiji Press]  October 2, 2017

 
Projects are under way in Norway and Japan to raise salmon in large numbers in big offshore pens, by adopting next-generation aquafarming technology.

Offshore farming aims to avoid the infestations of sea lice that often accompany conventional small and overcrowded coastal farms, as well as water contamination caused by leftover feed.

Prices of salmon are rising due to the growing popularity of sushi in the United States, Europe and Asia outside Japan, as well as poor catches. At the Tsukiji wholesale fish market in Tokyo, Norwegian Atlantic salmon is priced 15 pct to 20 pct higher year on year.

Moves to increase the production of salmon are therefore gaining momentum....

Salmon production in Russia will decline by 30 percent this year, compared to 2016, according to latest predictions of the Russian Agency of Fisheries (Rosrybolovstvo).
