Oct 26, 2017 — Compared to the prior estimate, sown soybean acreage for 2017/18 is estimated up 694,000 acres to a record 90.2 million. Even with the higher acreage, USDA’s October Crop Production report shaved the U.S. soybean production forecast for 2017/18 by 422,000 bushels to 4.431 billion. Global soybean production in 2017/18 is forecast down 0.6 million metric tons this month to 347.9 million.
Oct 26, 2017 — A 1.9-bushel-per-acre increase in U.S. projected corn yield for 2017/18 raised production nearly 100 million bushels to 14.280 billion. Feed and residual use is raised 25 million bushels. World 2017/18 coarse grain production is projected higher this month. Foreign corn production is up but is almost offset by reduced output of oats, rye, millet, and mixed grain.
Sep 20, 2017 — The new report “Indian Commercial Aquafeed Market - The Changing Market Landscape” provides in-depth study of India\'s aquaculture industry\'s performance in terms of inland and marine aquaculture production, along with the demand of commercial aquafeed in the coming years. According to the study, Andhra Pradesh accounts for 22% of India’s total commercial aquafeed consumption followed by West Bengal. The report includes state-wise fish production volume for inland and marine fishes and state-wise potential demand for commercial aquafeed and its consumption.
Sep 8, 2017 — The Global Feed Aquafeed Market 2017 report presents a professional and in-depth study on the current state of the global aquafeed market. The report provides a basic overview of the aquafeed market including definitions, classifications, applications and industry chain structure. Aquafeed market predictions along with the statistical implications presented in the report deliver an accurate scenario of the aquafeed market. The market forces determining the shaping of the global aquafeed market have been evaluated in detail.
Aug 31, 2017 — According to a paper published in International Aquafeed (July 2017), functional feed additives can reduce the impact of an Enteromyxum leei infection on performance and disease severity, as evidenced by an experimental challenge with gilthead sea bream.
Aug 10, 2017 — Most insights into aquaculture\'s societal effects come from developing nations. In industrial nations, aquaculture is known to bring jobs and infrastructure, particularly to isolated rural areas. Many aquaculture industries in developed nations suffer from low availability of high-paying jobs combined with a lack of appropriately trained staff willing to work in menial positions for low wages. Nonetheless, job retention in isolated areas helps stabilize community structure and drives secondary industry and services.
Aug 3, 2017 — To coincide with the WAS Asian-Pacific Aquaculture 2017 convention in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Journal of the World Aquaculture (JWAS) has compiled a Special Virtual Issue of papers that highlight aquaculture research in the Asian-Pacific Region. These papers will be available to download for free until August 27, 2017.
Jul 13, 2017 — A new report has valued the feed enzymes market at USD 842.9 Million in 2016. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.3% from 2017, to reach 1,428.6 Million by 2022. With the globally increasing demand for fish and fish-based products, the demand for feed enzymes in the aquafeed industry is also projected to increase. The rising cost of fishmeal has further encouraged feed manufacturers to use enzymes in aquafeed as an economical alternative protein sources.
Jul 13, 2017 — Since 2013, Nutriad has surveyed the composition of commercial shrimp feeds in India. Feeds have been analyzed on a range of nutritional parameters. The present study investigated the different nutritional strategies in commercial shrimp feeds during 2016, when the number of shrimp feed suppliers increased sharply. Feed samples of 8 major brands were collected in the market and analyzed for proximate composition as well as a number of essential nutrients (amino acids, phospholipids, cholesterol, n-3 highly unsaturated fatty acids).

Higher fish but lower micronutrient intakes: temporal changes in fish consumption from capture fisheries and aquaculture in Bangladesh
Apr 13, 2017 — Aquaculture systems are designed to maximise productivity, with little consideration for nutritional quality of fish produced, a new study claims. People in Bangladesh are eating more fish, but less wild caught and more aquacultured; despite increased total fish consumption, there were significant decreases in nutritional benefit.
Apr 13, 2017 — Feeding trial results with white shrimp, grunt and Atlantic salmon show promising results
