Abstract

U.S. agribusiness is constantly looking for new opportunities to expand markets for agricultural commodities and value-added products. With that in mind, a project called the Midwest Feeds Consortium, directed by the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development at Iowa State University, designed a study to link product development in agriculture with feed demand in aquaculture. What the consortium research found was that the demand for soybean oil meal and soybean products could be increased 2 percent annually. How? By providing up to 30 percent soybean product in the composition of aquaculture feeds used in the production of domestic fish and shrimp.
