Latest Autumn edition of Nexus

7 May 2015

In this issue of Nexus, we are outlining the current situation on the supply of fishmeal and fish oil from Peru and that our knowledge of raw material flexibility has ensured that we are well prepared to deal with these challenges.

In previous editions of Nexus, we have highlighted the many benefits of our high energy Premium feed for different species farmed here in Australia, namely Atlantic salmon and barramundi. Based on the international success of Premium for rainbow trout in Italy, we have been busy trialling the Premium concept for our local freshwater rainbow trout market. The results are discussed within.

Last year we carried out more R&D to ascertain whether barramundi performance could be further improved during winter conditions by increasing the energy density in barramundi grower feeds by another megajoule. The growth performance results of the trials and the economic benefits are presented and discussed within.
