As aquaculture production must double in the next 30 years to meet the increased demand in fish consumption, our industry needs to offer innovative technologies to unlock key issues while being sustainable, environmentally conscious and appealing to both the feed manufacturer and the farmer. The aquaculture industry has higher demands for its product than ever, while production inefficiencies due to mortalities and constraints on existing infrastructure potentially constricts future growth. Creating functional products for aquafeed that support healthy fish while at the same time offering the highest quality products consumers expect is one of the challenges that KnipBio is tackling.
KnipBio’s single cell protein (SCP) technology platform enables a versatile, functional protein effective in practical formulations for juvenile stages of growth and RAS-based settings. Application examples include off-flavor remediation, juvenile health, and pigmentation. The lack of antinutrient factors, as well as the presence of antioxidant carotenoids and prebiotics with immune-enhancing properties have the potential to lead to healthier fish and shrimp. By targeting specific issues encountered in established production systems, KnipBio Meal (KBM) products significantly decrease production costs while increasing the survival and quality of aquatic animals on the farm, which make operations more profitable.
KnipBio will present an update on its technical progress including recent strides in its R&D platform and animal trials, its recent CFIA approval for salmon feeds and other product characteristics.
