USSEC recently worked with key aquaculture feedmill demonstration cooperators to discuss why U.S. Soy is an ideal ingredient for aquaculture and to discuss how various micro and macro nutrients can have a significant impact on aquaculture species performance.
USSEC feed specialist – Southeast Asia Mark Newman, of M.N. Aqua Nutrition Consulting, spoke to aquaculture feedmill formulators and nutrition, production, and executive staff at PILMICO feedmill in Dong Thap, Vietnam on February 17 and 18. USSEC conducted a successful two-day program to discuss key issues related to aquaculture nutrition and on soy use and the U.S. Soy Advantage.
“We appreciate USSEC bringing Mark to meet with us to discuss these key nutrition topics and on soy use in aquafeeds in particular,” commented Ngo Xuan Tuyen, Technical Sales Manager, PILMICO.
Feedmills are the primary focus for USSEC’s aquaculture program, as they are the purchasers and users of U.S. soy products. USSEC is working with PILMICO as a demonstration feedmill to work on a Missouri Soybean (MOSOY) - funded demonstration using floating fingerling In Pond Raceway System (IPRS) with Pangasius. PILMICO is purchasing U.S. soybean products, thanks to USSEC’s efforts.
