Fishmeal and fish oil in aquaculture

The International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organisaion (IFFO) says that fishmeal and fish oil have an important role in sustainable aquaculture. IFFO is a not-for-profit so this isn’t just about exploiting wild fish and damaging ecosystems.

There are other ways for farmed fish to be fed. But can unwanted wild fish (no longer to be discarded in European seas) be used as feed in a sustainable way?

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
