is a nutrient-rich and high protein supplement feed ingredient used
primarily in diets for domestic animals and sometimes used as a
high-quality organic fertilizer.
all fishmeal is used as a high protein (60 to 72%) ingredient in
feed for farmed land animals and farmed fish. Fish oil is used
mainly in the feed of farmed fish and in very small quantities in
land animal feed.
is not fed straight (undiluted).
typical inclusion rate for fishmeal in farm animal diets is 1-5% of

farmed salmon diet contains 20-30% fishmeal and 15-20% fish oil
Aquaculture expanded worldwide by more than 9% per annum for the 10
years to 2002 and since then at a slightly slower rate.
- While the
use of fishmeal and fish oil will consequently increase – improved

- Fish meal
can be classified as two basic types; 1) fishery waste associated
with the processing of fish for human consumption and 2) fish that
are only used for the production of fish meal. The composition of
fish meal can vary considerable depending upon the composition
(whole fish, fish scraps, etc.) of the substrate that is used to
prepare the fish meal.
protein content was increased when fish meal replaced soybean meal
in the diets of lactating dairy cattle .
- Feeding of
fish meal was found to increase protein utilization in lactating
dairy cattle .
- Fish meal
was found to give similar performance when replacing milk protein in
milk replacers fed to dairy calves.
Incorporating fish meal into feeding programs was more effective in
increasing gains in young than older ruminants
