  1. Immobilized Enzyme Additive Package for Plant-Based Finfish Aquaculture Feed

    SBC: Guild Associates, Inc. DBA Guild Biosciences            Topic: 835

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A cost-effective, nutritious feed that minimally impacts the surrounding environment is critical to the profitability of a commercial aquaculture operations. As common sources of protein, such as fishmeal and fish processing byproducts, are becoming limited and more expensive to use, feed producers have turned to plant-based proteins. Plant-based feeds however, come with their ...
