USSEC’s “Soy in Aquaculture” Project Featured in International Aquafeed Magazine

USSEC was featured in the March / April edition of International Aquafeed Magazine.  The story focused specifically on USSEC’s “Soy in Aquaculture” project in Southeast Asia, which began in 2002.  The program works with aquaculture feedmills, government agencies, industry associations, and fish and shrimp producers to promote sustainable, feed-based aquaculture in the SE Asian region.  The program also highlights the benefits of U.S. soy products in particular, focusing on the reliability, consistency and technical support that only U.S. soy can offer.  The magazine article concentrates on the success story of Marcela Farms in the Philippines, where USSEC has had great success in promoting a low cost, soy optimized diet for tiger and white shrimp.
