Fishmeal - a strategic feed ingredient

Without equal, fishmeal and fish oil are the most valuable ingredients in diets for aquaculture and many land-farmed animals.

Fishmeal is a dried marine powder that holds several nutritional qualities, which makes it very attractive as a protein supplement in feed for aquaculture and agriculture.

The composition of micronutrients in fishmeal, including amino acids, vitamins and minerals, support growth and optimal physiological function of animals and farmed fish.

Fishmeal and fish oil provide essential nutritional value due to a high content of:

  • Easily digested proteins (68-76%)
  • Specific amino acids (esp. methionine, lysine)
  • Healthy long chain omega-3 fatty acids (esp. EPA, DHA)
  • Essential vitamins (esp. D, B1, B2, B6 and B12)
  • Important minerals (esp. calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium and selenium)
  • Vital marine phospholipids

A growing amount of raw material come from trimmings

Fishmeal and oil is produced mainly from small, short-lived fish with little or no potential for direct human consumption as well as from recycled trimmings from fish processing.

The production is based on certified sustainable exploitation of natural resources. All fish stocks used to produce fishmeal and fish oil in European countries are subject to catch limitations. The total allowable catches (TACs) are based on biological advice and under governmental regulation and control.


Some facts and figures

In the production of fishmeal raw fish and trimmings are boiled, separated, dried and grinded into fishmeal and fish oil.

100 kg of raw material produces:

  • ~ 20,6 kilos of fishmeal
  • ~ 6,5 kilos of fish oil
