Aquavlan2 supports aquaculture companies situated in Flanders and the Netherlands in their technical and innovative challenges. Further development of techniques should allow them to close fresh – and salt water aquaculture cycles, develop new feed for fish and shellfish and prevent the earthy flavour in aquaculture products. Other companies get the unique opportunity to answer specific questions through a voucher system. In this way the aquaculture sector can be extended and existing companies can strengthen their global competitiveness.
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.

Empro joins forces with 5 universities (ODISEE, PCG, UGENT, Inagro, HZ University of Applied Sciences) for a 3,5mil. International research project on aquaculture financed by Interreg (European Union) and the Province of Eastern Flanders.
The project is called Aquavlan 2 in which Empro will research its feather meal and derivatives on how these can be further improved for aquaculture and its niches. There’s also 300K available for research questions originating from the industrial partners. For more info feel free to contact us.

Kippenpluimen als voedselbron voor zalm en forel. Of om te verwerken in shampoo en misschien ooit zelfs in ontbijtshakes. Een Dendermondse start-up heeft grote plannen. ‘Een kip kweken kost vele kilo’s graan. Je gaat de pluimen dan toch niet weggooien ?
