Description

There is an urgent need for alternative resources to fishmeal and fish oil for the production of fish feed to the aquaculture industry. The resource problem is due to a combination of the rapid growth of the aquaculture, and the fact that catches of fish for the feed industry is stagnating.
The idea to use microalgae as fish feed originated from an on-going EU-project, which aims at demonstrating that algae can be grown on process water from the industry.
The partners in the project will develop, test and demonstrate new technologies for harvesting and refining microalgae. The project will develop a technology to open the cell walls of the microalgae in order to make it possible to extract micro- and macronutrients for use as an alternative resource to fish oil and fishmeal in the production of fish feed for the aquaculture industry.
The project is coordinated by the National Food Institute, Technical University of Denmark.
The project is funded by the Danish Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Fisheries through the Green Development and Demonstration Program (GUDP).
