What Makes Fishmeal So Special?
Fishmeal is the most established and well-known ingredient for animal feed, especially for aquaculture. It provides essential nutrients to farmed fish and crustaceans, which are not easily available in other ingredients. Protein is key to growth and the protein in fishmeal is highly digestible, with values consistently around 95%, outperforming most of the other animal feed ingredients. Fish and animals combine about 22 kinds of amino acids to build proteins but some essential amino acids cannot be made in their bodies. There are ten essential amino acids that must be contained in the diet of fish: arginine, histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptophan, and valine. Fishmeal contains a balanced profile of amino acids which fits the needs of farmed fish very well. and is therefore very attractive as a feed ingredient.
