Skretting Aquaculture Research Center works joins EU funded project

A European Union (EU) funded project joined by Skretting Aquaculture Research Center to maximise the retention of marine omega-3 fatty acids in farmed fish given feeds with improved sustainability. One method of raising the sustainability of fish feed is to reduce the content is to reduce the marine raw material in fishmeal and fish oil.

Researcher Ingunn Stubhaug explains: “We will explore ways of producing fish on diets that, across the full growth phase, have a lower content of marine oils. This can be achieved by identifying suitable antioxidants to protect the highly unsaturated fatty acids from oxidation, and optimising their inclusion levels." This project is expected to run for four years and starts in January 2012. Read more ...
