R&D-meeting: Future feed raw materials

The need for new feed raw materials to supply a growing aquaculture industry has been stated by industry and government alike, especially the present government has outlined this in their political platform – Hurdalsplatformen. Top industry players have underlined the need for increased focus on this issue as well as the need for industry relevant scale up of the raw material sources that are at or are approaching industry relevant scale.

This was on the agenda in the R&D-meeting in February 2022 about future feed raw materials. Taking up on this, we in NCE Seafood Innovation has, through large stakeholder meetings, smaller meetings with senior industry leads as well as in depth interviews with industry players, made an industry insight report on the matter. 

The report “Future ingredients for Norwegian salmon feed” builds on earlier reports exploring the possibilities and is augmented by in-depth interviews with leading players in the aquaculture industry. Earlier reports have detailed the different possible new feed raw materials and how those could be developed to industrial scale. Read the report here.
