Optimised nutrition for Tilapia

Tilapia is a tropical freshwater fish suitable for aquaculture in ponds, cages, tanks and recirculation systems. This species originates from Africa, but is farmed globally in all continents. Tilapia is herbivorous and performs well on a variety of vegetable feedstuffs.

Optimised feed for life start

Tilapia larvae can accept artificial feeds right after yolk sac absorption. The first feeds must be high in protein and energy to match the high growth rate potential of the larvae.


Tilapia nutrient requirements

Basic tilapia nutrition research has to start to establish the nutrient requirements for the different life stages. It is a prerequisite for formulating cost-effective diets.

Raw material evaluations

Tilapia has a stomach with a low pH and a very long intestinal tract enabling good digestibility of a large variety of raw materials. This allows us to make use of locally available raw materials and byproducts in feed production.
