  • Soybean meal and soy oil in fish and shrimp feeds reduces pressure on resources

U.S. soybeans increase the affordability and sustainability of the world’s supply of healthy, farm-raised seafood and can replace from one-third to one-half of the fishmeal in feeds for many farmed species, thus reducing the pressure on wild fish resources. Specially formulated soy-based feeds are rich in the proteins and nutrients that support healthy and efficient fish growth, while producing less waste.

The U.S. soy industry promotes environmentally friendly aquaculture production techniques around the world. Unlike wild resources for fishmeal, the soy industry can scale up to sustain the growth of global aquaculture.
