Ÿnsect aquaculture premium products
Ÿnmeal and Ÿnoil provide sustainable premium nutrition for aquaculture.
Aquaculture plays a decisive role in human nutrition : more than pig, sheep, cattle or poultry farming, aquaculture is the fastest growing animal production worldwide. Already half of the fish consumed comes from aquaculture (FAO 2014) and this figure will continue to increase. Fishmeal, the primary source of food for aquaculture fish, is a premium nutritional ingredient in crisis, given the decline in fish stocks. After a four-fold increase in fishmeal prices over the last 15 years, the FAO forecasts a drop in supply of 3 millions tonnes by 2025. The lack of sustainable solutions for aquaculture negatively impacts prices and availability for consumers. Our insects offer a premium alternative and are becoming an unavoidable resource.
Insects are indeed naturally present in the diet of wild fish and crustaceans and provide important nutritional benefits due to their high protein and polyunsaturated fatty acid content. Finally, if properly controlled and structured, insect farming has a low environmental impact : low greenhouse gas emissions, preservation of ocean biodiversity, and significant improvements in productivity linked to land use. Insects are thus positioning themselves as a new natural, sustainable and responsible resource to meet the nutritional challenges of aquaculture farms.
