Oysters and mussels are the most widely cultured groups under mollusks
Mollusks serve as a good source of protein. Their shells have industrial as well as ornamental uses. 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. Various factors, such as nutrient composition, rapid growth rate, mass culturing, stability in temperature & light, and easy digestibility, are considered before using certain species of microalgae as feed. The market for mollusk feed is growing slowly due to slower adoption and the high cost of feed. The research activities to find cheaper alternative sources of algae are expected to drive the slow-paced market.
The free-flowing structure and consistency of the dry aquafeed makes it a preferred form
The feed for fish is most commonly available in the form of pellets or granules, and usually contains moisture of approximately 7%–13%. Most aquafeed manufacturers adopt the use of the dry form of feed due to its free-flowing structure and ability to provide consistency. This form of feed is also preferred due to other factors, such as ease of transportation, storage, and convenience associated with it, as opposed to the liquid form, which requires specialized facilities for storage and transportation. It can be purchased in bulk and is available with multiple ingredient options. Cost-effectiveness is another aspect that drives the growth of this market.
