Use of Fishing Products

The fish feed that an aquaculture unit uses consist to a great extent of fish meal and fish oil.
At Nireus, wishing to contribute even more to the protection of fish stock, we have reduced by 26% in the past five years the percentage of fish meals we use in the production of our fish feeds.
It should be noted of course that for the production of fish feeds we use fish not directly intended for human consumption and fish that usually have a short life span (they live 1-3 years). In any case, they form part of wider ecosystems and food for bigger predators of these ecosystems.
It should also be noted that a high percentage of the fish meals comes from the remains of processed fish that is intended for human consumption and which do not increase the strain on fish stock.
