Discussions were held on progress in aquaculture nutrition research and practice, ingredient knowledge and feed formulation, the use of feed additives including organic selenium, enzymes and amino acids, and the need for education in aquaculture nutrition.

Alexander van Halteren, business development manager of aquaculture nutrition, presented a paper titled, “Balancing nutrient levels in commercial shrimp feeds.”

“Nutriad is committed to the development of innovative feed additives for aqua customers, that target the specific nutrition and health challenges producers face. We bring practical solutions to the market that build on years of close interaction with fish and shrimp producers around the world. APAC in general and India in particular are part of our strategic focus to further build on our leading position in the feed additives market for aquaculture,” said Nutriad CEO Erik Visser.
