Focus on feed in Middle East


A SHORT course for aquafeed producers will be held during the international trade show VIV MEA 2018 in Abu Dhabi in February.
The one-day course aims to promote a better understanding of extrusion technology, the selection of raw materials and their properties for making aqua feed, and optimising aqua feed quality.
Currently, 100 per cent of floating feed and about 60 per cent of sinking feed is made by extrusion technology.
There are hundreds of species of fish, which require a wide range of feeds. Some species need floating feed (catfish, carp), some need slow sinking feed (salmon, trout) and some need fast sinking feed (shrimp).
The quality of the feed has a direct effect on fish reproduction, maturation, growth rate, uniformity of growth, resistance to stress and diseases, mortality and water quality.
The feed industry undergoes constant change to meet the needs of an evolving market. New technologies provide the flexibility to process a wide spectrum of foods that are trending towards increased complexity.
The course, organised by International Aquafeed magazine and Dr Mian Riaz – a world leader in extrusion technology from Texas A&M University, takes place on February 5.
It will be held at ADNEC, Khaleej Al Arabi Street, Abu Dhabi, UAE, and there are places for 50 delegates. The VIV MEA 2018 trade show runs from February 5-7.
