Technological improvement of the utilisation of pulse proteins and fish protein concentrate in fish feeds

Objective

The aim of this project is to develop a premium feed ingredient by mixing liquid fish protein concentrate with a dry carrier, solving the application problem of the liquid fish concentrate and increasing the potential use of vegetable protein in aquatic feeds. The industrial/economic objectives are: Use of pea meal and pea starch in aquatic feeds; Development of new feed ingredients, based in the mixture of liquid fish protein concentrate with pea kernel and with pea starch; Validation of the products, based on nutritional experiments with fish and piglets.

The social/environmental objectives are: Find new applications for peas produced in Europe, increasing their nutritional potential; Contribute to the sustainability of the pea production chain; Reduce fish industrial by-products by using them as raw materials for feed grade products in an environmental friendly way.
