Fishmeal and fish oil
"the fishmeal industry supports the production of a significantly greater volume of protein for humanity than would be supplied merely through the direct consumption of the fish used as raw material in the production process.”
Read the response from IFFO to the Fish-Free Feed Challenge. EUfishmeal supports the views of IFFO.
EUfishmeal was happy to be invited to present the industry´s views in the 2nd Submariner Conference ”Better off blue” in Berlin.The session ”Changing markets for Marine Protein sources in feed” gave some interesting views on the current and expected market of marine raw material.
With participants from Denmark, Norway, UK, Ireland, Faroe Islands, Iceland, Germany and Sweden, the whole European fishmeal and fish oil industry was attending this year´s conference. It was four days full of interesting presentations, discussions, networking and exploring both Dublin and the Irish countryside.
Fishmeal and fish oil are responsible marine ingredients based on certified sustainable fisheries. That is a message we want to communicate to the public and our responsibility is a tool to do so.
With more than 110 participants from 10 european countries this years conference in Ireland is the biggest to date.
A recent event which claimed that a new alternative
source of omega-3s in aquafeeds is more sustainable than fish oil was “misleading”, according to Neil Auchterlonie, Technical Director of IFFO.
A new study shows that marine omega 3 fatty acids are necessary in feed to protect the good health of the farmed salmon.
EUfishmeal was invited to participate in a panel debate discussing the posssible use of discardfish in the fishmeal and fish oil industry.
A new report from the Pelagic Advisory Council:
“The climate of our planet is changing and it affects the marine environment"
"From a nutritional standpoint, fishmeal is the preferred animal protein supplement"
As long as fishmeal and fish oil are produced from well managed fisheries, or from byproduct from fish from well managed fisheries, then their use in aquafeeds is valid.
