USSEC Promotes Soy Aqua Feed in Korea, Plans 2013 Workshops

Korean flounder growers who participated in past USSEC workshops recently met with aquaculture utilization contractor In Soo Shin to discuss upcoming events. Feedback from the meeting helped USSEC staff develop future activities for 2013. Responses confirmed that 50 percent of participants are still unaware of the benefits of soy meal and soy protein concentrate in aqua feed.
Future marketing activities will target uninformed flounder growers who applied to join a new Korean government program that expands the use of soy meal-based extruded pellet feed. Reduction of feeding costs, sustainable supply and quality consistency will be covered to highlight the benefits of soy-based extruded pellet feed compared to fish meal-based extruded pellet feed.
