DDGS Already a Proven Ingredient in Aquafeeds

By Kurt A. Rosentrater | September 18, 2014

In recent months, the buzz has been about using various fractions from DDGS as protein ingredients in feeds for the aquaculture industry.  Indeed, there are some very interesting value-added ingredients coming down the pipeline. Unbeknownst to many, however, traditional DDGS has already been proven time and again as working very well as a protein source in a variety of aquafeeds. As with any feed ingredient, though, it must be used at the proper level, and in proper combination with other ingredients as part of a complete, balanced diet. Formulations vary, depending upon the species and the age of the fish—similar to any other livestock species. A broad look at the industry and a bit of history are in order.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing animal food-producing sector globally. The industry has been growing by nearly 7 percent per year for almost 40 years. In fact, it has been the only food producing sector growing at a rate greater than human population growth. Most of this growth has been outside the U.S. and, although there is considerable potential here in the U.S. for fish production, it has been slow to materialize. China has by far been the world’s leader in aquaculture production, but other countries around the world have also become large players, including Indonesia, Vietnam, Bangladesh and several South American countries. Even though many countries have rapidly increased production during the past decade, China is still the largest producer of fish.

For a typical fish production operation, in the U.S. or abroad, feed costs represent between 40 and 70 percent of all operating costs, depending on the specific farm.
