Technology offer : Mini-larvae production as new fish feeding or other animal feeding

Technology's description


This invention concerns a production process of ‘mini-larvae’ as an attractive feed for fish or other animals.


The bioconversion of nutrients from palm kernel cake to larval biomass was developed by an IRD research team in partnership with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries of Indonesia.


This method enables a low-cost production of a new source of animal protein that could replace fishmeal.
