Ingredients company Kemin Industries has enhanced its ability to supply clients in the aquaculture industry by launching a new dedicated aquaculture division.
Kemin claims the new AquaKulture division will help aqua feed companies, aqua farms and fish meal producers achieve growth, as it will provide products and solutions which will help company’s raise healthy and nutritious fish products.
Kemin AquaCulture will offer clients a range of programmes which will help improve water quality and enhance the immunity of aqua products, such as the prevention of microbial spoilage, introducing oxidative control measures and boosting lipid nutrition.
The company says that the AquaKulture Division will make its global debut at the World Aqua Culture Symposium in Taipei, Taiwan on 24 April.
G.S. Ramesh, group president of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health said: “Nearly half of the human food consumption of animal protein is in the form of fish and/or shrimp. With the focus on ‘sustainable production,’ producers are quickly moving from using wild-caught to farmed fish.
“With this shift, the industry is expected to grow rapidly. For these reasons and a variety of others, we decided to make AquaKulture its own division within Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health.
“Over the years, several Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health teams have successfully ventured into the aquaculture market. We’re excited to now launch a complete AquaKulture division that will provide even greater resources to strengthen the quality of aqua feed and feed ingredients and improve the health and survival of aqua species.
“We look forward to serving those in the aquaculture industry.”
