  • Skretting produces commercial salmon feed containing insect meal

    October 25, 2018

    Skretting Norway’s factory in Averøy has produced commercial salmon feed with insect meal for the first time. Skretting believes insect meal will be an important raw material in the future and is helping producers scale up production. The company envisions that by 2022 there will be at least five different European suppliers, each producing 20,000 tonnes of insect meal per year. That amount equates to two thirds of the amount of soybean concentrate Skretting Norway uses today. "Our goal is that in the future, ingredients used for aquaculture feed do not compete with food for human consumption. For us it's important to invest in alternatives like insect meal. We are also currently testing the plankton Calanus, which is a natural part of the wild salmon diet.”
