A New Soy Protein for Aquaculture
At the recent Aquaculture-2019 annual meeting, Prairie Aquatech introduced a new non-GM soybean-based protein ingredient (ME-PRO®) to the aquaculture industry. ME-PRO is highly digestible, 70% protein (as fed) and has highly available phosphorus content. The new protein source is processed from soybean meal using a natural occurring, non-toxigenic and non-pathogenic microbe (Aureobasidium pullulan). ME-PRO has been extensively tested in the laboratory and commercial operations (inclusion rates ranging from 15-40% of the dry diet) with outstanding results in a wide variety of marine and freshwater species of fish and shrimp.
