The Soy Aquaculture Alliance (SAA) works to create new opportunities for soybean farmers within a growing domestic market: aquaculture. SAA funds programs and research that increases the utilization of U.S. soybeans in the diets of fish and shrimp through affiliations with academic and private researchers and industry leaders. SAA is governed by a volunteer board representing U.S. soybean farmers and industry members. Membership is open to Qualified State Soybean Boards and public and private entities in the soy, aquaculture and seafood industries.

Soy-fed aquaculture opens unprecedented opportunities to:

• Feed a growing population with the most feed-efficient farm-raised protein

• Build a lucrative domestic market for fish growers and soybean farmers alike
