19/06/2018: Phileo kicks off aquatic summer in Las Palmas

Metabolomics strategy and recent animal trial data with plant based diets and yeast paraprobiotics presented at Phileo symposium paves the way for launching innovative solution for the aqua industry this summer.

Nothing is more precious than life, and that’s the philosophy that drives Phileo. As global population continues to increase, the world faces a growing demand for food and greater sustainability challenges.

Working at the crossroads of nutrition and health, Phileo is committed to delivering future evidence-based solutions that enhance farmed fish and shrimp health and performance, says Otavio Castro, Global Species Manager Aquaculture at Phileo. In each and every country, our team’s progress is led by the most advanced scientific outcomes as well as the field input of experienced farmers.

As active participant in oral presentations and poster presentations and as sponsor of 18th International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding, Phileo was pleased to invite all participants to the successful Phileo symposium entitled Applying yeast nutritional solutions for improved performance and health in trout and marine fish.

The incorporation levels of marine ingredients like fishmeal and fish oil are being drastically reduced in aquafeed formulas due to their decreasing availability worldwide and are being replaced by ingredients of more sustainable origin such as plant-based ingredients. Inclusion of high levels of plant ingredients is still challenging, due to negative impacts on feed intake, perturbations of metabolic and health status, and growth performance slowdown, stated Dr. Sandrine Skiba-Cassy, Research Director Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA) in Saint Pée sur Nivelle (France).

The NINAqua project (New Ingredients for New Aquafeeds) aims to develop new diets devoid of fishmeal and fish oil by using vegetable biodiversity, processed animal proteins and new alternative ingredients as insects, yeast and microalgae. Funded by the French government and local authorities, the consortium co-ordinated by Le Gouessant a french feed production company is composed of academic research institutes (INRA, IFREMER and Institut Pasteur de Paris), private companies specialised in feed ingredient production (Lesaffre, Copalis, Algae Natural Food) and structures supporting producers of the French aquaculture sector (ITAVI, CIPA). The objectives of the partners of the NINAqua project are to determine the nutritional value of new diets for trout and seabass and investigate their impact of fish quality, resistance to pathogens, sustainability and social acceptance.

Among the different diets tested in rainbow trout, some of them were formulated on a vegetable basis and were supplemented with yeast protein sources. Results indicated that yeast protein supplementation may upgrade growth performance of trout fed plant-based diets totally devoid of fishmeal and fish oil. Surprisingly, it seems that yeast protein may also improve flesh quality by increasing DHA retention. Studies of cellular and molecular mechanisms are in progress to clarify the role of yeast protein on long chain highly unsaturated fatty acid biosynthesis.
