BIOMIN Aqua Days 2018 Recap in Videos

Benedict Standen, Product Manager at BIOMIN, kicked off the event with a preview of the main themes, including sustainability, fishmeal reduction, health management and profitability.

Tackling the fishmeal dilemma

Piet Verstraete of 4SEA Consulting offers his opinion on fishmeal reduction and outlines keys to successful replacement.

David Bal, Technical Sales Manager at BIOMIN, explained how the F3 Challenge raised awareness of the need to reduce fishmeal in the diets of aquatic farmed species, and how plant-based ingredients can introduce harmful mycotoxins that should be counteracted.

Rui Goncalves, Aquaculture Scientist at BIOMIN, highlighted the most common mycotoxins that contaminate aquafeeds, e.g. deoxynivalenol and fumonisins, and emphasized the need for awareness when it comes to their negative impacts in aquatic species.

Michele Muccio, Product Manager for Mycotoxin Risk Management at BIOMIN, outlined the mitigation methods required to protect farmed aquatic species against mycotoxins found in aquafeeds.

Michael Noonan, Global Product Manager Phytogenics at BIOMIN, detailed how phytogenic feed additive Digestarom® enhances the efficiency of aquaculture, which improves profitability and reduces environmental impact.
