Fish Feed Plant Background & Necessity
Along with the development of aquaculture, aquafeed industry has also made a quite fast progress, especially in virtue of continue advancement of breeding technology, the culturing mode has turned into intensive cultivation from extensive fish farming, which provides vast space for fish feed production. In line with the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) report, the per capita fish consumption of human beings has exceeded beef consumption while farmed fish has surpassed wild caught. It is well known that fish feed plays a leading role in global aquaculture and fish farming field, making sure safe, abundant and affordable fish proteins, but meanwhile, the cost of aquatic feed is so high that affecting sustainable development of aquaculture industry. Therefore, it is necessary, economic and practical for fish farmers or feed plants to establish their own fish feed production line rather than buying or importing feed from elsewhere.
Fish Feed Plant Aim & Significance
Feed is the first and foremost factor that affects the growth of aquatic animals. With the advantages of low feed coefficient, low incidence of fish disease and resistance to transport, high quality feed is conducive to fish fast growth and aquatic products quality and safety. Compared with other feed manufacturing technologies, extruded processing technique of fish feed plant has unparalleted superiority in making fish feed pellets. For instance, extruded feed pellet is easy to digest and absorb, which can promote the digestive utilization ratio of feed; it has good stability in water for long time with less pollution to water and environment, avoiding scattering before ingestion and greatly reduce the loss of nutrient substance and the waste of fish feed.
Fish Feed Market Demand
According to the diverse eating habits of different type fishes, feed should have properties - floating, slow floating or sinking, and keep stability in water for certain time so as to leave enough ingesting time for fish. Fortunately, Amisy fish feed plant can make aquatic feed with the above characteristics, meeting the environmental protection and high efficiency requirements of feed in aquaculture. In general, it is local fish farmers that would be main potential target markets if establishing fish feed production line.
Fish Feed Plant Production Process
Generally speaking, fish feed production process flow has several main steps, including procurement of feed ingredients, raw materials grinding, mixing, extruding, drying and automatic weighing and packaging, in tune with scientific and nutrient aquatic feed formulation.
