Traditionally, fish feeds are based on fishmeal and fish oil derived from capture fisheries. The sustainability and competiveness of aquaculture depends largely on the replacement of these feeds and significant progress has been made in developing feeds based on alternative ingredients.

ARRAINA is developing innovative vectors to supply alternative fish feeds that maintain the nutritional properties of the fish. It is further advancing our knowledge of the long-term effects these changes in diet have over the full lifecycle of farmed fish.
