Animal species: Aqua

Worldwide, aquaculture constitutes a large variation of aquatic species and rearing systems, which makes each management procedure unique. 

Demand of aquatic species for human consumption has been growing significantly, as the world population is rapidly expanding with an increasing demand for healthy nutrition. Fish and shrimp contain essential nutrients for human health. Salmon for instance, is known as a rich source of selenium and omega-3 fatty acids (EPA/DHA).

Aquaculture can produce animal protein efficiently while making limited use of land. As such, it is a vital step towards a sustainable future. The industry is also facing challenges, such as disease outbreaks, water quality changes and early mortality. In these circumstances, feed additives are part of the solution. Orffa’s feed additive solutions support health, growth performance and fortification of cultured fish and shrimp species.
