26/04/2018: MOU signing challenges least-cost formulations for shrimp in Asia

Blue Aqua International Group of Singapore and a major shrimp producer in Indonesia, PT Maju Tambak Sumur, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) at APA Taiwan 2018 in Taipei this week that paves the way for higher shrimp feed prices based on formulations that include quality products that the farmer wants, particularly with regard to sustainability.

Too often fish farmers are subjected to using feeds costing the least to produce that compromise fish performance, says Dr Farshad Shishehchian, President and CEO of Blue Aqua International Group.

International Aquafeed magazine was on hand to witness the MOU signing ceremony and interview both Dr Shishehchian and the CEO and owner of PT Maju Tambak Sumur, Frans Antony. Mr Antony's farm produces over 5000 tonnes of shrimp per year. He says his shrimp production systems require specific feed ingredients that achieve certain outcomes that least-cost formulations do not address.
