Fishmeal is an important ingredient in feed for farm animals, especially for piglets.
Due to the high content of essential nutrients such as amino acids and other fatty acids as well as the high energy value of fishmeal and fish oil are, without equal, the most valuable ingredients in diets for many land-farmed animals.
Several studies document effects such as improved feed intake, growth etc. in cattle, pigs, sheep and poultry (Source: Feedipedia.org)
Due to the high omega-3 content in fishmeal, it is a natural “functional animal feed”, which contributes to good animal health. Moreover, humans benefit from products produced from farm animals fed on feed containing fish meal, also known as “functional feed”.
