Protix Biosystems, Netherlands
Keynote: J Aquac Res Development
The uses of ProteinX in diets for Atlantic salmon and vannamei shrimp, as well as the life feeding of insects to trout, have shown consistent results: Improved FCR and reduced mortality while keeping growth at or above par. Protix will present research that has been conducted at various institutes, including NIFES, Nofima (Norway) and Kasetsart University (Thailand). Also, the presentation will highlight the production process of insects and the derivatives derived thereof such as concentrated protein meals and insect lipids. As of 1st July 2017, the EU has approved the use of processed insect proteins in the diets for aquaculture species. This new sustainable source of nutrients is expected to contribute significantly to the future of aquaculture globally.
