23/05/2017: Omega 3 innovation


Evonik and DSM recently announced to establish a joint venture for omega-3 fatty acid products from natural marine algae for animal nutrition. This breakthrough innovation will, for the first time, enable the production of omega-3 fatty acids for animal nutrition without using fish oil from wild caught fish, a finite resource.

International Aquafeed Magazine caught up with Dr Christoph Kobler from Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH and Dr David Nickell from DSM Nutritional Products Ltd to find out more about this ground breaking idea.

Christoph Kobler is Head of Product Line Sustainable Healthy Nutrition at Evonik Nutrition & Care GmbH. He holds a PhD in Chemistry from University of Stuttgart.
David Nickell is Vice President for Global Marketing & Business Development, Animal Nutrition and Health at DSM Nutritional Products Ltd. He received a PhD in Aquaculture from University of Stirling.

Can you give the readers an overview of what your breakthrough is?

Kobler: We are the first to offer a liquid, non fish-based alternative source of long chain omega-3-fatty acids. By the help of natural marine algae, we produce an algal oil that contains a natural balance of both essential omega-3-fatty acids EPA and DHA – a true market first. Also, the exceptionally high concentration of active ingredients at greater than 50 percent, increases the flexibility in feed formulation.

Nickell: Furthermore, our new algal oil can be applied in feed production in the same way as fish oil. That means feed and pet food producers can easily introduce it in the process. To meet the increasing demand for omega-3-fatty acids in animal nutrition, we will manufacture at an industrial scale. The initial annual production capacity will meet roughly 15 percent of the total current annual demand for EPA and DHA by the salmon aquaculture industry.

What prompted the joint venture?

Nickell: The success was only possible thanks to the complementary competencies that both of our two companies bring to the collaboration. DSM has expertise in the cultivation of marine organisms including algae whilst Evonik’s focus has been on developing industrial biotechnology processes and operating at large-scales. Our teamwork across companies, countries, and cultures is fantastic and we consider our joint venture the perfect way of collaborating.

22/05/2017: InfiNet Wireless provides super-fast over-water transmission for Regal Springs fish farms

The solution reduced human intervention, improving employee productivity


InfiNet Wireless, the global leader in fixed broadband wireless connectivity, has provided a cost-effective solution to enable the transmission of voice, data and video surveillance footage across all Regal Springs production centres.

Regal Springs is the number one producer of all-natural tilapia, which it grows in rural farms across Mexico, Honduras and Indonesia, in large floating pens to avoid health risks which wild fish can sometimes experience. Due to the vast geographic spread of its facilities, Regal Springs approached INXITE, InfiNet's partner in Mexico specialising in wireless communications and infrastructure solutions, to help provide a more flexible and reliable wireless backhaul network that enables the simultaneous transmission of voice, data and video streams between all its production centres.

INXITE designed the network for optimum performance across Regal Springs' challenging landscape and environment, using the InfiNet Wireless portfolio of solutions that could withstand the harshest climates and be fully reliable even across long distances. The InfiLINK XG was ultimately selected to maximise its best-in-class data rates, speeds and low latency, and was carefully grounded to withstand frequent atmospheric discharges associated with lighting strikes.

“Before the InfiNet Wireless implementation, we had to depend on low cost wireless technologies that did not provide the required performance for us to be able to maintain the high-quality standards our operation needed every day,” said Humberto Villalobos, IT Manager at Regal Springs Mexico. “We are very satisfied with the InfiNet high-speed connectivity deployed throughout the water reservoirs that support our different applications and interconnectivity with our processing plants on the other side of the mountains, all in real time.”

The solution that was ultimately deployed consisted of a combination of both Point to Point (PTP) and Point to Multipoint (PTMP) wireless products. The PTP links were based on the InfiLINK XG product range and are today used to create communication between the main production centres – the administration office on the main land and the fish farms. The PTMP links connected each area and department inside the production centres, enabling Regal Springs to quickly and easily scale the network for its future needs. As all the farms are situated on open water, InfiNet Wireless proved to be the best available low-power consumption solution in the marketplace since it can easily operate via the only available source of electrical power, solar energy.

“Regal Springs needed a solution that was both flexible in terms of geographical coverage and one that improved company productivity, as well as deliver error-free data packets across all production centres,” said Carlos de la Madrid, LATAM Director at InfiNet Wireless. “The solution provided by InfiNet Wireless, along with significantly reduced operational costs when compared to the previous platform, allowed Regal Fish Farms to improve the productivity of its employees and assets, and their valuable time is no longer spent on manual tasks and interventions.”

Regal Springs can now focus entirely on its core business of farming fish in the knowledge that it has put in place a reliable and scalable wireless infrastructure that supports all its needs for voice, data and video transmissions across the wide geographic expanse of all its rural facilities.

22/05/2017: Pangasius farm Vam Nao 2 achieves ASC certification


Vam Nao 2 has achieved certification against the ASC pangasius standard for responsible aquaculture after assessment by independent certifier Bureau Veritas. The farm is based in Vietnam's An Giang Provence and supplies pangasius to ASC certified Vinh Hoan Corporation as part of their vertically integrated supply chain.

Vam Nao 2 is run by Mr. Nguyen Van Nhan, who started cage farming on the Mekong delta in 1990. Mr. Nguyen started farming pangasius in land based ponds in 2000, the same year he began to cultivate pangasius for Vinh Hoan. He has now joined their long term contract farming program, where he continues to farm fish for them. Mr. Nguyen attributes the success of the farm to working closely with Vinh Hoan from the beginning and to the way the farm is run, with all the employees working as a close team, caring for the environment and the local community together.

Fish Feeding
"A lot has changed over the past decades since I began farming pangasius.  We have tirelessly improved the farming techniques and practices from day to day, year to year through learning from our experience and market demand," said Nguyen Van Nhan. "I share Vinh Hoan's vision for sustainability, and I also have an understanding of their market which demands international certification."

"We are pleased to welcome Vam Nao 2 to the ASC programme," said Esther Luiten, Commercial Director for the ASC. "Farmers such as Mr. Nguyen and his team are to be applauded for their commitment to operating to best practises, as part of a transparent and robust certification scheme. Because ASC certified farms undergo assessment by a qualified, independent auditor and publicly report how they produce pangasius, consumers can have confidence they can readily find product raised in a way that cares for the ecosystem- with strict limits on water usage, discharge and no use of toxins-from farms that respect and support the communities where they are sited."
