USSEC Records Video on the Use of U.S. Soy in Aquaculture in Honduras
- General News
USSEC recently produced a video on the use of U.S. soy in Honduran aquaculture. Consultants Jairo Amezquita, Kelly Coleman and Bryce Groark traveled to Honduras to create this piece emphasizing the key role of U.S. soy in aquafeed manufacturing for tilapia diets; the sustainability of the tilapia production industry; the current tilapia production process used in farms and processing plants; and social work with communities. This educational material will be used in USSEC’s aquaculture seminars and courses. The video was filmed at the facilities of a company which produces tilapia by means of floating cage systems at Borboton, Cajon Dam and Lake Yojoa. This company’s tilapia production represents a consumption of more than 17,000 metric tons of U.S. soybean meal per yea; it exports tilapia as fresh fillet to the U.S.
