The Problem faced by the industry...

Dwindling Food Supplies

In the next few years the exponential increase in demand
for fish food will far exceed it's supply
The industry cannot meet these demands because of...

Declining Wild Fish Stocks

Around 85% of global fish stocks are over-exploited, depleted, fully exploited or in recovery from exploitation.

Stricter Fishing Quotas

To protect wild fish stocks, quotas have been introduced which now limit the supply of raw materials needed to make fish feed.

300% Increase in Material Costs

In the last ten years material costs have increased 300% This has put agriculture farms under severe pressure.
