CPF—Reduce Fishmeal in Shrimp Feeds to 5%

 

Charoen Pokphand Foods PLC (CPF) plans to reduce the amount of fishmeal in its shrimp feed to no more than 5 percent!  DVM Sujint Thammasart, chief operating officer for CPF’s aquaculture business, said over the last two decades, CPF has managed to reduce the amount of fishmeal used in shrimp feed from 35 percent to 7 percent.  He expects that figure to drop to 5 percent in the next 3 years.

 

“We have a clear guideline in protection and conservation, to ensure the sustainability of marine resources.  We place our emphasis on innovating shrimp feed formulas to reduce fishmeal, which is part of marine resources, and shifting from black tiger shrimp farming to Vannamei shrimp,” said Thammasart.

 

He said CPF’s fishmeal is produced from the waste products of Surimi and tuna processing plants and from the by-catch of other fisheries, which is subjected to the sustainability and traceability rules under the International Fishmeal and Fish Oil Organization’s Responsible Supply Chain of Custody (IFFO RS COC), which is certified by IFFO.
