Growing seafood trade and aquaculture industry to drive the global aquafeed demand close to USD 172.56 billion by 2022

Aquafeeds are used for feeding omnivorous fish (tilapia, catfish, common carp, and milkfish), carnivorous fish (salmon, trout, eel, seabass, seabream, and tuna), and crustacean species (marine and brackish-water shrimps, freshwater prawns, crabs, and lobsters). It helps to keep the fish in good health by providing the essential nutrients in required quantities. The most widely used aquafeeds in the market are fish meal, soybean, and corn.

The global aquafeed market is projected to reach USD 172.56 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2017 to 2022. The growth of the aquafeed market is driven by the increasing fish farming trend, growing aquaculture industry, and the increasing trade of feed and fishery products.

Price volatility of raw materials is the major restraint to aquafeed market and is projected to inhibit the market growth.

According to the FAO, the cost of major oils used in the aquafeed industry has increased by 250% since 2005. Aquafeed ingredients such as soybean, corn, fish meal, fish oil, and wheat are traded internationally, due to which they are exposed to the volatile prices of these ingredients in the global market. The recent rise in prices has had a direct impact on the demand for current and future fish supplies from aquaculture. Fishmeal and fish oil are the most widely used ingredients of aquafeed.  Aquafeed production has been greatly affected, due to the limited supply and increasing prices of these ingredients.

The major consequence of the increasing prices of ingredients is the shortage in the local supply of fish and unsecured future food supply. Small companies and rural farmers are particularly susceptible to these changes. As aquaculture is a major contributor to employment for farmers and aquaculture producers, this rise in the operating costs is affecting their livelihood to a great extent, which, in turn, is hampering the growth of the aquafeed market.

Aquafeeds Market

One of the major challenges of the aquafeed market is the increase in food safety concerns caused by aquaculture products. Issues associated with the safety of aquaculture food products differ as per region, management practices, methods of production, and environmental conditions. Some identified hazards of aquaculture products are veterinary drugs, filtrates of agrochemicals, and heavy metal contamination. Food safety concerns are associated with environmental pollution and inappropriate aquaculture practices. Thus, with the increasing contribution of aquaculture in food trade, proper valuation and regulations of food safety concerns are gaining more importance.

Market Dynamics

Aquafeeds Market

Leading aquafeed manufacturers are developing innovative solutions for existing aquafeed end-users to fuel industrial growth

Aquafeeds Market

Fish

Fish is the cheapest and most easily digestible animal protein. However, due to excessive exploitation of resources and pollution, the availability of fish in natural waters has declined considerably. This has resulted in the adoption of various methods to increase its production. Fish farming and aquaculture in controlled conditions or under artificial settings has increased fish production and its availability for consumption.

Fish needs to be farmed on a large scale to meet the growing demand for animal products. Fish farming in ponds, lakes, rivers, and coastal waters is increasingly used to fill the gap between demand and supply. The increase in fish farming activities and aquaculture has led to an increased demand for fish feed. The types of fish feed can be classified into the following categories:

Tilapia Feed<

Tilapia is a relatively fast-growing fish with low feed requirements. Tilapia can be fed practically with any feed, and can still deliver first-class fish protein. The main reason for the increased culturing of tilapia is the supply of cheap but high-quality protein. Tilapia brood fish require about 40-45% protein for optimum reproduction and larval growth and survival. Tilapia diet contains 5-10% dietary lipids. The feed should contain supplemental mineral premixes, apart from its ability to absorb minerals from the culture water, and the presence of minerals in feed ingredients.

Salmon Feed

Salmon is cultured in tanks and raceways prior to its transfer to the sea. After the transfer, salmon species are farmed in sea cages where they depend solely on formulated feeds. Depending on the various stages of development and production cycle in freshwater and seawater, formulated feed is broadly classified as freshwater (starter, grower), seawater grower, and broodstock feeds. Salmon’s share in the global fishery trade has grown strongly over the past decade, mainly due to the expansion of production in North and South America.

Carp Feed

Carp grows at an optimum temperature range between 20-25°C, and represents the largest and the oldest feed species group. Carps are being extensively reared, owing to their adaptability to changing climates. In addition, carps are a viable source of protein, containing high Omega-3 and low fat. Currently, around 50% of the total cultured carps are fed artificially. The carps feed market is estimated to grow with the increasing awareness among aquaculture breeders, with regard to their nutrient requirements and increased exports.

Catfish Feed

Catfish are bottom feeders, but their feeding habits vary according to weight, feed efficiency, protein content, and fat content. Most cultured catfish require artificial feed, as their nutrient requirements cannot be fulfilled from their habitat.  Feed formulation for catfish varies as per regions and producers. Commercial catfish feed contains a mixture of feedstuff, mineral premixes, additives, and vitamins, which provide energy as well as nutrients.

Mollusks

Mollusks serve as a good source of protein. Their shells have industrial as well as ornamental use. Along with harvesting mollusks from natural fisheries, they are also cultured in artificially controlled environments to protect them during storms and wind, and to increase their productivity. They are also used as food supplements. Oysters and mussels are the most widely cultured groups under mollusks.

Oyster Feed

Oyster is a soft un-segmented mollusk that is protected by two permanent hard shells. Oysters are nutritious, and are a rich source of protein, minerals, and vitamins. Due to their importance as food, many countries are engaged in its production. Oysters are herbivores in nature, and filter their food in water. Oyster feed consists of phytoplankton, copepod larvae, protozoans, and detritus.

Mussel Feed

Mussels are filter-feeders, and majorly feed on phytoplankton. Filter feeding is a method of eating, in which mussels filter a large volume of water through their gills to get enough food to eat. In mussel farming, bamboos are used extensively either as stakes or as floating rafts. Mussels are harvested after 6-10 months, when they reach a length of 5-8 cm. Mussels grown on floating rafts have advantages such as faster growth, possibility of regular thinning, possibility of transfer to other areas, and ease of construction using more durable materials.

Crustaceans

Crustaceans are a diverse group of arthropods that includes lobsters, crayfish, crabs, shrimp, barnacles, and pill bugs. According to the FAO, crustacean culture accounted for around 7% of the total freshwater aquaculture production in 2010. Around 62 crustacean species are cultured globally. The availability of feed has led to an increase in the culture of crustaceans. The types of crustaceans can be classified into the following categories:

Shrimp Feed

Shrimp farmers are attracted by quality feed, good feed conversion ratio, healthy shrimps, and high-production growth rates. Some aquafeed companies have produced extruded sinking pellets for shrimps, which have a low success rate. Cheaper feed ingredients such as de-oiled rice bran, wheat bran, cottonseed cake, and groundnut cake are extensively used in freshwater aquaculture. Both conventional and non-conventional feed ingredients are used in feed formulation for shrimps. Feed ingredients such as fishmeal, squid meal, lecithin, cereal flour, and other essential and propriety additives and fish oil are also used in shrimp feed formulations.

Crab Feed

Crab is a popular seafood, highly priced due to its taste and nutritional contents. Feed ingredients such as trash fish, chicken intestine, fish meal, and cereal flour are used in crab feed formulation.

Other End-users

Others include species such as testudinata, echinozoa, and tunicate. It also includes varieties such as softshell turtles, freshwater turtles, sea cucumbers, sea squirts, and sea urchins. The development of freshwater farming of these species is resulting in a decrease in the market share of fish feed at a very slow rate. The market for this segment is in the nascent stage, as the animals cultured are in less demand for human consumption.

Key Questions

  • The aquafeed industry is going through a demand-supply gap, when will this scenario ease out?
  • The market for fish is projected to account for the highest growth rate in next five years. With seafood & seafood products gaining more traction, will the suppliers continue to explore new avenues for fish feed? What could be the adjacencies?
