Metamorphosis will build on foundational work performed in Year 1 in regards to conversion of organic waste streams into valuable, next generation functional aquaculture feeds, utilising insect biomass conversion and proprietary bioprocessing. In Year 1, we identified top-performing and regulatory-ready Functional Insect Meals (´FIM´) by performing an array of nutritional modulation and composition analyses, and importantly assessing growth performance results collected through juvenile salmonid feeding trials. Metamorphosis will take best FIM a step further by fine-turning aquafeed formulations for adult Atlantic Salmon, and thus test their efficacy in a further commercially relevant environment. EU produced FIMs represent sustainable alternatives to fish meal and soy protein and will in turn support the predicted growth of European aquaculture.
Metamorphosis – enhanced insect protein for aquaculture
Metamorphosis focuses on turning organic waste streams into a valuable, next generation aquaculture feed ingredient.
By modelling the complex decision-making processes underlying an individual’s food choices, our tool will identify the unique profile of these factors and provide tailored advice, enabling individual consumers...
