We have just finished a feeding trial with juvenile seabream which were fed practical diets in which the fishmeal (24% in the control diet) was replaced by different concentrations of Empro’s premium feather meal FM 725.
After 3 months of feeding we could conclude that the inclusion of 3, 6 or 9% of Empro’s FM725 results in similar performance of seabream in terms of survival, growth and FCR. This means that replacement up to 43,3% of the LT fishmeal 999 with FM725 does not affect growth parameters nor survival. In practical seabream diets, the replacement of a large part of the LT fishmeal by Empro’s FM725 will lead to a significant cost reduction and thus to a more cost efficient and sustainable production.
