Ocean-based aquaculture is forecast to have the greatest potential for meeting future consumer demand for seafood products.

The U.S. soybean industry, through its New Uses program, is evaluating the potential for soy product use in the diets of many of the major farmed marine fish and shrimp species worldwide.

As soy diet research is completed, it is field demonstrated to aquaculture operators through the American Soybean Association International Marketing program.

Research has shown that a combination of soybean meal and soy protein concentrate can replace much of the fishmeal in traditional marine fish and shrimp diets. These renewable soy protein ingredients can be scaled to meet feed demand, offering opportunity for significant industry growth in the future without placing additional demand on ocean capture fisheries.
