A major important part of running a successful commercial aquaculture is the selection of the right manufactured feeds which provide the balanced nutrition required by fish. The feed may be either granular or in the form of pellets and are essential in providing the fish with a balanced diet within their enclosures where their natural food sources may be absent.
Wheat is being used as a major ingredient in all aquatic feed due to its binding property for holding the pellets together. As for the carnivorous species of fish such as salmon, trout and turbot, fishmeal and fish oil are the major components for making the feed.
