  • Feeding New Opportunities: Aquaculture Nutrition Forum
    Virtual Event
    Jun 29, 8:30 AM – 12:00 PM CDT
    Virtual Event

The Soy Aquaculture Alliance is hosting a virtual forum to bring together experts from the agriculture and aquaculture industries for a discussion on the use of soybeans as a replacement protein for fishmeal in fish feed. What does research say about adding soy into fish diets? What challenges do companies face implementing soy? How can the industry balance feed costs, availability, and sustainability? How does soymeal affect fish feed nutrition?

Join us as we tackle these questions and more!


You’ll hear from speakers on three panels: research, industry and nutrition, speaking on a variety of topics within the soy and aquaculture sectors. At the end of each panel, there will be an opportunity for questions.
