Ca­lysta pro­tein in salmon feed tri­als

Fish Farmer - - News -

CA­LYSTA, the com­pany be­hind an al­ter­na­tive form of fish feed pro­tein, is to part­ner with Nor­we­gian re­search in­sti­tu­tion Nofima in largescale salmon tri­als, be­gin­ning in early 2019.

The com­pany, which has back­ing from the feed gi­ant Cargill, claims that its FeedKind pro­tein, pro­duced by nat­u­ral fer­men­ta­tion, can im­prove growth rates, feed ef­fi­ciency and fish health.

It pro­vides the in­dus­try with the first scal­able al­ter­na­tive pro­tein re­quir­ing no wild caught fish or agri­cul­tural land.

Mari Moren, direc­tor of re­search at Nofima, said: ‘We are ea­ger to do re­search on FeedKind as we be­lieve that this may be an ex­am­ple of new pro­tein sources that can con­trib­ute to a more sus­tain­able aqua­cul­ture.‘

FeedKind has been ap­proved for sale in the EU and sev­eral Asian coun­tries. It has been shown to use 77-98 per cent less wa­ter and more than 98 per cent less land than al­ter­na­tive in­gre­di­ents, such as soy or wheat pro­teins.
