Aquaculture is the fastest growing sector of food production in the world today, and fish farming is responsible for most of the fish directly consumed by humans. In 2020, a total of about 47 million metric tonnes of freshwater fish were farmed from inland waters while another 8 million metric tonnes of marine species were produced in coastal or marine waters.
One of the main challenges in fish farming is availability of good water resources, especially for inland and coastal aquaculture. While marine aquaculture holds much promise, farmers at present have to contend with limited resources of land and water. As the industry undergoes intensification, poor management of these resources can result in lowered survival, uneven growth and disease problems.
To continue providing for the increased demand of quality seafood, farmers need to improve their farming methods, adopt more sustainable measures and also increase the productivity to ensure continued profitability of their farming operations. The challenges facing the fish farms today require new innovations to improve the viability in order to ensure quality seafood for our future in a sustainable manner.
PhytoFAT Ruby is a natural functional lipid that is rich in beta carotene, Vitamin E and other phytonutrients which can promote fish growth and survival. PhytoFAT Ruby has been shown to improve pigmentation of farmed fish as well as increase carcass formation leading to better muscle bone ratios, and better feed efficiency.
The chemical-free and low-temperature patented processing of PhytoFAT Ruby improves the bio-availability of these key nutrients allowing PhytoFAT Ruby to be easily absorbed by fish when added into feed formulations.
PhytoFAT Ruby is unique in that it is a natural lipid source designed to meet the energy requirements of fast growing fish; and also improve the muscle formation and overall appearance of farmed fish through supplementation of key phytonutrients. PhytoFAT Ruby helps farmers to provide the world with faster growing, better looking and tastier fish sustainably for a better future.
