Pre-Processing of Feedstuffs to Improve their Feeding Value for Aquaculture Feeds

Dr. Dominique P. Bureau, Professor, University of Guelph, Canada

The agriculture, food and bio-fuel sectors produce numerous co-products or by-products and some undervalorized waste streams. There are opportunities to make use of undervalued products or waste streams or to improve the nutritive and economical values of existing feed ingredients. The presentation will review several recent attempts made at the University of Guelph to study the effectiveness of simple and potentially cost-effective techniques for processing feedstuffs of plant, microbial and animal origins prior to their incorporation in animal feeds. The perspectives and pitfalls for these approaches will be discussed.

Dominique P Bureau is a well-established research scientist with over 25 years’ experience in aquaculture nutrition. He has lead a dynamic research group, the Fish Nutrition Research Laboratory, at the University of Guelph since 2000, collaborating with numerous academic research groups, aquafeed manufacturers, ingredient suppliers and funding and regulatory agencies across the world and supervising a team composed of about 20 graduate students, post-doctoral fellows and research assistants.
