Ridley launches world's first fishmeal-free prawn feed


Australian feed company Ridley has launched the world's first commercial prawn feed containing no traditional wild-caught fishmeal.


The company's NoCatchTM diet is priced competitively with other premium prawn diets available in the market.


As the diet contains zero fishmeal, it avoids the price volatility to which other diets are subjected to from seasonal availability and variable catches.


NoCatchTM diets for barramundi and salmon have also been successfully developed and tested by Ridley.


Group technical and R&D manager at Ridley Aquafeed, Dr. Richard Smullen, said, "Using a broad range of high quality, responsibly sourced ingredients, we've learnt how to optimise our feeds to help deliver the biggest, healthiest and tastiest prawns and fish, and done it without relying on fishmeal.


The new feed is the result of more than a decade of research by Smullen and his team.
