While feed appearance and feeding activity will determine the farmers' choice, the aquafeed producer will seek hydrolysates with high stardardisation to ensure high and consistent quality feed.
Variable supply and quality, unsustainability issues and volatile prices of marine resources are daily routine challenges for feed manufacturers. They have to grapple also with inconsistency of feed cosmetic (smell and colour) and feed performance (palatability and feed efficiency) which have direct consequences on marketing and sales success.
In an article published in the January/February issue of Aqua Culture Asia Pacific magazine, we detailed how functional hydrolysates made by Diana Aqua could support the development of the next generation of aquaculture feeds in terms of standardisation and performance consistency. Beside the contribution of functional hydrolysate to a sustainable development of aquaculture, our product is recognized for its high palatability, high digestibility and positive effect on immune system that will bring benefits to the feed manufacturers (flexibility in feed formulation) as well as to the farmers (higher and standardised production).

Functional hydrolysates increase shrimp feed consistency, sustainability and performance
The recent HATCH survey revealed that for shrimp farmers, the main concern is disease risks, far beyond feed costs, while quality of feed was hardly mentioned (https://www.shrimpfarm.tech/, 2019). ...
An overview on the benefits and modes of actions of functional protein hydrolysates in fish and shrimp
It is now well established that the production of protein hydrolysates requires high expertise in the hydrolysis process and very specific analytical capabilities to guarantee standardized production...
