  1. Reduce fish meal in diet

    In 2007, a replicated study in Norway (Bendiksen et al., 2011) found similar final weights in salmon, Salmo salar, fed low, medium and high fish meal diets. Final weights of salmon in three groups fed diets containing 10%, 15% and 20% fish meal were 4.59kg, 4.63kg and 4.66kg, respectively. Fish were fed a diet containing 20% fish meal for six weeks before being fed one of the three experimental diets for 9 months. Weights were recorded.
