Different strategies towards quality feeding

Olivier Decamp, Product Manager Farm & Feedmill, INVE Aquaculture, Thailand

Sustainable aquaculture production requires the combination of cost effective innovation, accurate data collection/analysis, and the implementation of protocols adapted to local conditions. Recent market trends, i.e diseases and low farm-gate price, have led many farmers to reduce their costs, with consequences on biosecurity, environment management and nutritional quality of feed. This is a vicious circle: lower investment at the farm leads to lower performance, affecting the production efficacy. Benefits in quality feed in early stages of production extends to later stages of production. Feed with the correct physical and nutritional properties give a clear advantage in the hatchery, but also nursery phases, in both Latin American and Asian conditions. When combined with health additives, quality feed can help animals cope with disease challenges. Unfortunately, the price pressure on feed mills is preventing many of them from incorporating expensive or unique ingredients that would support farmers. This has led to the development of protocols combining “bulk” feed with health boosters or speciality feed. Examples will be provided, documenting the cost benefit to farmers from applying technologies (product, protocol, design) in hatchery, nursery and on-growing.
