Fish feed production and market trends

by Lanpu Industry LP SEO

Use of formulated feeds for fish farming is increasing in Bangladesh, associated with growth and intensification and commercialization of aquaculture. It seems that commercial pelleted feeds are starting to replace ’farm-made’ and ’raw’ unformulated feeds. 

As indicated by Figure 3, production of commercial feeds has increased at an average rate of 32% per year over the period 2008–2012, and has reached an estimated total of almost 1.07 million tonnes in 2012. Sinking feeds, which accounted for 81% of total manufactured output, still dominate over extruded floating feed (19%), but growth in the production of floating fish feed has been fastest, averaging 89% over the last four years. Three types of floating feeds are available: oil coated, non oil-coated, and vegetable protein based. 

Non-oil coated feeds account for 95% of total sales. Feed prices increased at a rate of between 9 and 15% per year from 2008 to 2012, due to increases in the price of major raw materials and unavailability. The retail price of 3–4 mm grower feed is currently 35–42 BDT/kg for sinking pellet feed, and 48–54 BDT/kg for extruded floating feed, depending on the species. Using least square demand forecasting and Delphi methods, total feed production is projected to increase to nearly 1.8 million tonnes in 2015.

How to Choose the Right Fish Feed Making Machine
Before buying a animal feed making machine, people usually first shop on the internet to have an awareness of the machines. Countless machines on line from various companies are for sale, with different looking or similar looking. No matter which type of feed machine you decide to buy, the four tips should be taken into consideration.

1. Quality
Quality is key, the heart of fish feed production. You should know the structure, materials that made of machine, fish feed quality and so on. To choose a fish feed machine with a CE certify is necessary.
2. Cost
The cost of buying machines is also an important factor. Best of all, you can purchase a suitable pellet mill from the manufacturer or supplier with cheapest price. However, cost is proportional to quality. You should clearly know your production requirements, feed quality requirements and budget, and then choose the right one.
3. Operation
Operation is also a key factor in buying a machine. Easy operation not only does not need professional training, but also can reduce the maintenance cost caused by wrong operation to the minimum.
4. After-sale service
After-sales service is an important aspect before buying a machine. Excellent after-sales service can help you solve operational problems. It is best to choose a pellet mill from a manufacturer or supplier that can provide satisfactory after-sales service. Any problems you may have can be solved by phone or email.
Aquatic Feed in Bangladesh
The use of aquaculture feeds in Bangladesh has grown substantially in the past few years, and now over 1 million tonnes of commercial pelleted feed are being formulated for use by aquaculture farmers. An estimated further 0.4 million tonnes of locally-formulated and processed diets are also being prepared by small village-based feed-making enterprises. Rapid growth in use of formulated feeds has helped many aquaculture farmers intensify production, but at the same time has raised a number of issues including feed quality, feed management efficiency and environmental sustainability.
