13 March 2017

EU - BIOMIN has announced the start of its experiment work in the WiseFeed project —a collaborative industry and academic network with support from European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program— to improve the sustainability and performance of aquafeeds.

“Performance, profitability and the environment are themes that we encounter on a regular basis in our discussion with clients across the world,” noted Edward Manchester, Global Head of Aquaculture at BIOMIN. “Our robust research and development capabilities allow us to advance scientific knowledge and deliver leading products to customers.”
Mycotoxins in focus

BIOMIN has been at the forefront of research on the impacts of mycotoxins in aquaculture species in recent years.

“Scientific research continues to document the negative impact of mycotoxins on various fish and shrimp species,” stated Rui Gonçalves, Scientist at BIOMIN. “The objective of our participation is to better understand how mycotoxins impact the digestibility of plant-based diets in aquaculture and how to counteract any negative effects—and therefore boost performance.”
