Latin America

Can Double Production


Carlos Miranda, general manager of Skretting Ecuador, said, shrimp production in Central and South America could double without increasing stocking densities, thanks to a significant reduction in feed conversion ratios.  “We know how to do it,” Miranda said.


Skretting, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Nutreco feed group, supplies broodstock, hatchery and growout feeds to the global shrimp industry.
