Facing rising aquafeed costs, researchers and farmers are investigating ways to lessen resources spent on feeds by feeding less and feeding differently. “Greenwater” technology applied through pond fertilization generates food items produced naturally in culture water. In conjunction, feeding on alternate days can maintain good harvest results. Further approaches include product substitutions through alternative sourcing of feed ingredients, increasing the nutritive content of feed to grow healthier fish and improving locally produced, low-cost feeds by the process of pelletization.
