Barley used as fish feed

The state Industrial Commission has approved an $83,000 Renewable Energy Program grant to Midwest Ag-Energy Group to produce a high value protein concentrate to feed carnivorous fish, like salmon and trout.

Instead of harvesting a large number of fish to turn into feed, Midwest Ag Energy Group will develop a high protein concentrate made of North Dakota grown barley.

The first phase of the project will provide a market analysis of protein feed ingredients in aquaculture and conduct an analysis of barley availability as a feedstock in the state.
