  • While the use of fishmeal and fish oil will consequently increase improved efficiency and some substitution means this is likely to be at a slower rate.
  • 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.
  • Milk 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 .
