Extruded aquatic feed is a high-quality and environmentally friendly feed with low pollution, less waste, high efficiency, and a high conversion rate. The selection of floating fish feed is an important method to produce high-quality and safe animal products and ensure human health, and it is also the trend for the future development of the feed industry.
Lima Machinery has been in the fish feed production industry for more than ten years. After continuous communication with customers, we have accumulated a lot of fish farming experience. If you have any questions about fish farming, please feel free to contact us, our technicians will provide you with a complete solution.
Just like other animals, fish requires a feed formula that contains protein, carbohydrates, lipids, minerals, and vitamins for healthy growth. Fish requires mostly protein in their feed.
Extruded floating feeds are favored by farmers in Nigeria because they allow observation of the feeding processing thereby preventing wasteful feeding.
In recent years, with the increasing popularity of high-yield fish farming, the use of full-price pellets for fish in fishery production has become very common. However, due to the many feed brands on the market, and there are great differences in quality and grade, the majority of fish farming The user cannot judge the quality of the fish feed. This article introduces a simple method to judge the quality of fish feed using the senses. Namely:’One look, two smells, three twists, four foams, five chews’ for your reference when choosing pellet feed.
In the process of raising chickens, farmers will formulate feeds for chickens at different growth stages. When formulating feed formulas scientifically, the nutrients in the feed rations are balanced and comprehensive, and a reasonable mix of feeds is realized, so as to obtain high benefits and low costs.
With the development of the feed industry, the improvement of processing equipment and breeding technology, the aquatic feed by fish farmers have changed from ordinary single raw materials to powder, hard pellets and extruded feed. At present, except for some species (such as soft-shelled turtle, eel, etc.) that use powder, other species basically use hard pellet feed and extruded feed pellet.
At present, the processing technology and production characteristics of each feed production equipment manufacturer are different, and even the product quality of the same variety produced by the same manufacturer in different batches may fluctuate greatly. After years of practical experience in production and continuous communication with customers, we have summarized the following twelve common problems and corresponding solutions for customers’ reference.
In different growth stages of fish, there will be certain differences in the ratio of nutrients required by fish, which is to enable fish to grow healthier and faster. We need to choose the appropriate fish food formula according to the type of fish and different growth stages, so as to ensure the comprehensive and balanced nutrition required by the fish, maximize the use of the nutritional value in the feed, and at the same time comply with economic principles and minimize the cost.
The main components in fish food pellets include protein, fat, carbohydrate, cellulose, inorganic salt, etc. Some color-boosting substances are added to the feed of some ornamental fish to help the fish obtain a more vivid color on the body surface.
Generally speaking, the protein, fat, carbohydrate and other substances in fish food pellets can be obtained from raw materials, but some necessary inorganic salt minerals need to be added during the pelleting process, like adding the bone meal to increase the calcium content.
