In the quest for sustainable and efficient shrimp farming, the industry faces numerous challenges, from environmental sustainability to the health and growth of shrimp. Enter MOTIVTM, a proprietary fermentation product by Cargill® designed to address these issues head-on. This article delves into how MOTIVTM is setting new standards in shrimp feed, improving immune response, and optimizing nutrient utilization for better energy and growth.

Addressing the Shrimp Industry’s Challenges

The shrimp industry is grappling with several critical challenges, including disease outbreaks, the need for sustainable feed sources, and the demand for higher growth rates without compromising the environment. Traditional feed solutions often fall short of providing a balanced approach to these issues, leading to the need for a more innovative and sustainable solution.

Introducing MOTIVTM: A Proprietary Fermentation Product

MOTIVTM stands out as a ground breaking solution developed through Cargill®’s proprietary fermentation technology. It is not merely a protein source but a macro-ingredient de signed to enhance the nutritive and functional benefits of shrimp diets.

By utilizing specific strains of microorganisms, MOTIVTM is produced in a controlled environment, ensuring high quality and consistency.

The Science Behind MOTIVTM

The proprietary fermentation process that creates MOTIVTM involves cultivating select microorganisms that are beneficial for shrimp nutrition. This process results in a product that is rich in essential nutrients, including amino acids, vitamins, and minerals, crucial for the optimal growth and health of shrimp.

MOTIVTM stands as a superior fermented corn protein concentrate, boasting an impressive protein content of 69%, with very low carbohydrates 1.7% free from antinutrients, and abundantly rich in beneficial health nutrients. The secret behind MOTIVTM’s efficacy is a specialized fermentation process that unlocks more potential from protein to improve growth, feed conversion rate, and survivability, especially to bring health benefits for shrimp to overcome stress and disease challenges.

“MOTIVTM is, therefore, to serve as an excellent source of premium & functional protein for shrimp & marine fish feeds.”

In the realm of aquaculture nutrition, fermentation is a critical process that enables microorganisms to transform proteins into smaller, more absorbable units known as peptides. MOTIVTM leverages this process to produce a protein source with superior digestibility and a robust profile of essential aminoacids, predominantly present in these peptide chains.

These peptides, particularly rich in bioactive aminoacids, become highly accessible in the shrimp’s digestive system, supporting gut health, reducing stress, and providing antioxidant, antibacterial, and immune-boosting effects. The fermentation process also enriches MOTIVTM with high levels of organic acids and naturally occurring carotenoids.

Moreover, the resultant fermented biomass acts as a prebiotic, fostering the proliferation of beneficial gut bacteria and suppressing harmful Vibrio populations through a mechanism known as quorum sensing.

Optimizing Aquaculture with MOTIVTM Proven Results in Shrimp Growth and Health

Understanding the intrinsic nature of shrimp as rudimentary organisms reveals their acute vulnerability to stress, necessitating rapid nutrient assimilation from their straightforward digestive systems. In contrast, marine fish exhibit a voracious carnivorous appetite, necessitating feed composed of highly concentrated protein with minimal carbohydrates and devoid of antinutrients for the creation of optimal diets.

Herein lies the ingenuity of MOTIVTM , a tailored feed component ideal for both shrimp and marine fish, acclaimed for its minimal carbohydrate content and absence of antinutrients. Extensive research and field trials underscore the efficacy of MOTIVTM when incorporated at 7.5% to 10% in shrimp feed formulations, demonstrating substantial enhancements in growth and health outcomes.

The proven benefits of MOTIVTM for aquaculture include:

1.Boost in Shrimp Growth: Averaging a notable 11% increase in shrimp weight alongside an 8% reduction in feed conversion ratio (FCR), indicating a more efficient growth process.

2.Elevated Survival Rates: With MOTIVTM , shrimp demonstrate an average 4% increase in survival rates, contributing to more robust harvests.

3.Enhanced Shrimp Coloration: An improvement of 1.5 points in color scoring on average, indicating better overall quality and market ability.

4.Cost Efficiency for Feed Mills: The integration of a minimum of 7.5% MOTIVTM can lead to significant cost savings, eliminating the need for 25 ppm of astaxanthin and reducing expenses by US$ 31.50 per metric ton of feed.

5.Additional Savings: The same inclusion rate also cuts down the usage of lactic acid by 5.4 kg, equating to a cost reduction of US$ 8.64 per metric ton of feed.

MOTIVTM ‘s effectiveness in feed formulations not only enhances shrimp health and growth but also promotes economic and ecological efficiency, positioning it as a leading choice for the forward-thinking aquaculture industry.

Improving Nutrient Utilization

Efficient nutrient utilization in shrimp farming is critical for enhancing growth rates, minimizing feed waste, and reducing environmental impact. The foundational principles of nutrition science and aquaculture research provide valuable insights into how innovations like MOTIVTM can address these issues:

1.Improving Digestibility: The key to efficient nutrient utilization lies in enhancing the digestibility of feed. This involves the formulation of feeds that are easily broken down and absorbed by the shrimp’s digestive system. Products like MOTIVTM are designed with this principle in mind, using fermentation processes to break down complex nutrients into more accessible forms.

2.Optimizing Nutrient Absorption: Beyond digestibility, the effective absorption of nutrients is crucial. This entails not only the physical breakdown of food but also the biochemical processes that allow nutrients to be transported and utilized within the shrimp’s body.

Enhancements in feed formulations aim to optimize these processes, ensuring that nutrients are not only available but also effectively used by the shrimp.

3.Reducing Waste Through Precision Nutrition: Precision in feed formulation helps match the nutrient content of the feed with the specific needs of the shrimp at various stages of their growth. By aligning the feed’s nutrient profile with the shrimp’s requirements, waste can be minimized and efficiency maximized. This precision nutrition approach contributes to the sustainability of shrimp farming by reducing the excess nutrients that can contribute to environmental pollution.

4.Environmental and Economic Benefits: Efficient nutrient utilization has significant environmental benefits. By reducing feed waste, the load of uneaten feed and excretory products in the water is minimized, leading to improved water quality and reduced impact on the aquatic environment. Economically, improved nutrient utilization translates to lower feed costs per unit of shrimp produced, enhancing the profitability of shrimp farming operations.

5.Innovations in Feed Technology: Innovations like MOTIVTM , which leverage proprietary fermentation technology, play a pivotal role in advancing efficient nutrient utilization. By enhancing the bioavailability of nutrients and improving shrimp’s digestive health, such innovations offer a path toward more sustainable and productive aquaculture practices.

Beyond Protein: MOTIVTM as a Macro-Ingredient

MOTIVTM transcends the role of a conventional protein source in shrimp feed. As a macro-ingredient, it brings a comprehensive solution to the diet, offering both nutritive and functional benefits. This dual approach ensures that shrimp are not only receiving the necessary nutrients for growth but also benefiting from enhanced health and resilience, paving the way for more sustainable and productive shrimp farming.

Conclusions

MOTIVTM ’s innovative approach to shrimp feed through a unique fermentation process provides a holistic solution to the shrimp industry’s challenges. Its impact on improving immune response and nutrient utilization not only promises healthier and faster-growing shrimp but also contributes to the sustainability of shrimp farming practices.

The scientific community’s findings on the benefits of probiotics in aquaculture further reinforce the potential of such innovations in transforming the industry, providing a solid foundation for the continued exploration and adoption of advanced solutions like MOTIVTM .
