LSAqua Fishmeal replacer is a mix of vegetable products, by-products materials and novel protein resources combined to remove the fishmeal of your diets. The substitution is possible thanks of the usage of Single Cell Protein (SCP).
SCP term refers to dried cells of microorganisms such bacteria, yeasts, fungi and algae that are cultured in different mediums and could be used as a protein source for feed or food. They are rich in protein content (60-80%) and their biomass further contains vitamins, minerals, lipids and carbohydrates. In addition, microorganisms are able to produce high quality protein using wastes and cheap materials, turning residues into resources.
Among the microorganisms, bacteria possess more digestible walls, faster growth rate and their amino acid profile is similar to FAO recommendation with enough quantities of lysine and methionine. Consequently, our replacer is based in single cell protein that comes from bacteria.
We have designed a substitute for fishmeal, with a protein content of 75% and 6 % of Nitrogen-Free Extract which it makes comparable to any fishmeal on the market. The replacer has also the advantage of not containing TVN and has been proved its enhancement on shrimp immune system and growth rate under laboratory and farm conditions.
LSAqua fishmeal replacer can substitute 1:1 fishmeal which allows you to meet your sustainable goals with a reasonable price.
