TURNING NORDIC BIOMASS INTO FISH FEED FOR THE NORDIC AQUACULTURE INDUSTRY
Aquaculture is the most rapidly expanding food production industry in the world, and several Nordic industrial actors are leading producers. However, there is a shortage of sustainable feed resources that can sustain the industry. The main raw materials for fish feed production stem from fish by-products and plant-based raw materials, mainly soy, neither of which can meet the high demand alone or is a sustainable solution. The industry’s growing need for feed therefore provides an opportunity for Nordic sustainable alternatives. This was the main focus of the Nordic Innovation project ProffAqua, led by Matís, that was finished in the end of 2018.
