Main objectives of feeding

Feeding is one of the most important, if not the single most important factor in profitable fish farming. Successful or unsuccessful feeding affects many areas, such as fish welfare, needs for workforce, economy and environment.

Feeding should be conducted by the company's most competent and motivated employees. Main objectives of feeding, the achievement of which should never be compromised, are the following:

  • to meet the nutritional requirements of the fish
  • to feed the fish with a suitable amount of nutrition according to the conditions and fish size
  • to minimise overfeeding and environmental load

All the above are overlapping with each other and the correct amount of feed is relevant in all. Issues concerning the main objectives and their achievement are further examined on our web site under ‘How to manage feeding'.
