The Aquafeed Technology Centre has been awarded NOK 30 million (3.7 mill. USD) by the Research Council of Norway, for research into fish feed. The centre will contribute to knowledge about how raw materials in the fish feed of the future can be used in the best possible way during preprocessing.
When we keep fish in aquaculture, we must be sure that the fish receive the nutrients they require for growth and good health. Scientists at Nofima have studied nutrition in aquatic animals for several decades.
