Is a ‘baby food’ bottleneck looming for aquaculture?
Many R&D projects were set-up with the goal of reaching that holy grail of Artemia replacement. I agree with Sergio Nates that it will be very difficult to find a complete replacement. What we have seen so far are rather Artemia substitutes, the higher the % of substitution the lower the growth rate and survival of the aquatic animal. As an example, shrimp larvae between Z3 and PL5 will have optimal growth when fed 100% Artemia but will perform very poor on 100% replacement.
As Athene Blakeman concluded “Artemia is here to stay”
So how can we use the available resources better?
