Other information: During 2015 we launched the world’s first commercial prawn diet containing no traditional wild-capture fishmeal, and saw all available volume taken up by the market. We are now working toward achieving the same for our other major species, and have produced very promising results not only in the lab, but also in commercial scale tests for the likes of barramundi and Atlantic salmon.
