A global perspective was conveyed by IFFO’s speakers on global market demand and supply as well as technical constraints and opportunities to fishmeal and fish oil use in aquaculture species.

IFFO – The Marine Ingredients Organisation held a China fishmeal and fish oil Webinar on 29-30 November. With a strong focus on China, it addressed the current state of the industry in China as well as the application of fishmeal in aquaculture feed. Scientific and technical findings were shared regarding the influence of fishmeal on the growth performance and quality of Litopenaeus Vannamei, also known as Pacific white shrimp and now the most farmed shrimp in Asia. Presenters gave a detailed presentation on the requirements of sustainability certification programmes for marine ingredients and the benefits they bring.

A global perspective was conveyed by IFFO’s speakers on global market demand and supply as well as technical constraints and opportunities to fishmeal and fish oil use in aquaculture species.

Maggie Xu, Director of IFFO China, explains: “China’s increased enforcement of environmental rules while investing in higher-value aquaculture projects is impacting the feed sector. As a global organisation, IFFO wants to shed a light on the current state of the fishmeal and fish oil industry in China, how marine ingredients are being used and their efficiency assessed and how certification standards are perceived. With a low carbon footprint, fishmeal and fish oil’s contribution to the aquaculture sector is strategic”.
