Regionally sourced fish feeds

Aquabest attempts to close the nutrient loop of the Baltic Sea - in other words; turn aquaculture from net ocean nutrient importer to a nutrient-neutral system. This is accomplished by creating incentives and technologies for using locally and regionally produced feed ingredients. Detoxified Baltic Sea fish meal and oil, farmed mussel, microbial meal and by-products from crops, are potential regional feed ingredients. The costs and benefits of nutrient recycling will be demonstrated through pilot farming of trout, charr and turbot. Feedstuff quantities and costs will be estimated, and together with stakeholders an incentive assessment will be made.
