21/04/2016: Evonik Industries AG to launch of AQUAVI® Met-Met at APA 2016

Based on the report 'Fish to 2030: Prospects for Fisheries and Aquaculture' released by the World Bank, Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), and the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFRI) in 2014, it is said that aquaculture will provide close to two thirds of global food fish consumption by 2030.

The report highlights the extent of global trade in seafood, which tends to flow heavily from developing to developed countries, including Indonesia. Fishmeal being part of the feed as a protein source is a significant cost factor for farmers, therefore with the supplementation of amino acids will allow significant reduction of the proportion of fishmeal in feeds.

However, as shrimps and crustaceans have totally different feeding habits and digestive systems, in order to increase the efficiency and sustainability of crustacean aquaculture, a new feed additive need to be developed specially for them.
Evonik Industries AG from Germany is one of the world leaders in specialty chemicals. With more than 60 years of experience in manufacturing essential amino acid for animal nutrition, Evonik translates its knowledge into solutions that meet the evolving needs of its customers in over one hundred countries.

With the launch of AQUAVI® Met-Met, the world’s first production for a new methionine source specifically for shrimps and other crustaceans, Evonik is offering a cost-efficient and sustainable solution for the farming of the commodities.
The launching is planned for Friday, 29 April 2016, in conjunction with the company's participation in Asia-Pacific Aquaculture 2016 hosted by the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Republic of Indonesia.
