Soy Meal Picks Up Aquaculture Market

Aquaculture will consume an estimated 8.8 to 11 million tons of soybean meal over the next decade.

Soybeans are contributing to the world's fastest-growing food segment. That segment is aquaculture, and the soybean checkoff is working to develop ways to include soy in fish food.

Aquaculture is growing at a rate of 9 to 11% globally and is expected to consume an estimated 8.8 to 11 million tons of soybean meal in the next decade.

"The soybean checkoff recognized the bright future of aquaculture and has gotten in on the ground floor with our investment in new technologies to increase soy inclusion in fish diets," says Terry Ecker, United Soybean Board International Marketing chair.
