Aquafeed – Fischfutter
Aquafeed Fischfutter the healthy special feed from Beeskow
A facility with history, present and future celebrates in 2016 its 40th jubilee of fish feed production. We constantly adjust our technology to the latest state of the art.
Scientific research and practical tests of the feeding quotient and the performance are the base of the Aquafeed- programme.
The close coorporation with German and foreign institutes is an important fundament of the development and improvement of the Aquafeed products. By the refoundation of the Spezialfuttermittelwerk GmbH a base for the enlargement of the programme of special feed was set. Today Aquafeed is sold by four representatives abroad and is directly sold in Germany as well as by five German representatives. The factory is admitted to produce 18.000 t fish feed per year.
We are focussed on contract-production. Custom-made receipts in small quantities combined with customer-consulting is a further feature of our new company strategy.
Ecology – product quality- profitability
The developed types of feed consider environment, health, condition and the ability of the fish to withstand stress as well as the quality of the edible fish and the profitability of the fish production.
Latest production facilities contribute to high rates of utilization and low losses of feed. The environmental feed programme corresponds to the need of informing about the quality of the feed as well as about the environmental consequences of usage. The programme contains furthermore indications about the conditions of the fish after feeding and it contains indications about the edible fish quality.
After finishing the reconstruction in February 2010 demanding and special receipts e.g. for shrimps and other species can be produced.
With the further reconstruction of the extruder in 2015, the production facility was once more adjusted to the latest technical conditions.
With this feed programme the Spezialfuttermittelwerk Beeskow GmbH approaches especially the trout and sturgeon farmers. Furthermore the feeding products are suitable for other fish species like salmon, wels catfish, eel and carp. The following table presents the possibilities of usage.
The declaration states the original content of the nutrients, the digestibility of the nutrients, the content of energy and the distribution of energy.
Content of nutrients and –digestibility
Nutritionally the most important ingredients of the feed are the content of protein,- fat and carbs (non-digestible extracts) whose digestibility can be derived by practical tests and can be calculated by the following formular.
The raw fiber, as indigestible component of the carbs, is quoted separately.
Similar to ash, as inorganic nutrient, raw fiber is reducing the content of energy.
The total content of raw fiber and ash should therefore be as low as possible.
Because of its influence on the environment the content of phosphor is quoted as well.
Content of energy
The content of energy of the feed is quoted as gross-energy, as digestible energy and as convertible energy per kg feed. The gross energy was calculated by factors which can be determined with help of the caloric value determination.
Factors (by Schiemann, 1981)
The digestible energy is calculated by the deducation of the energy in the fecal from the gross energy. It can be calculated by the following formular:
If the energetic value of the nitrogen fecal products is additionally deducted from the digestible energy the result is the value of convertible energy.
The correction is carried out by deducting a value, which matches the content of energy of nitrogen and is 0,0502 MJ / % Protein, from the energy factor of protein.
Distribution of energy
The distribution of energy is an index for the evaluation of the amount of the initiation of nitrogen and can therefore be used for the ecological evaluation of the feed products. It is indicated in percent of the convertible energy of protein, fat and carbs.
Because of increasing environmental regulations for fish production the eutrophication through fish feed into waters is becoming more important.
The eutrophication of a fish feed is giving direction about the maximum risk of the environment. The extent depends on the feed quotient (kg feed / kg growth), the content of phosphor and nitrogen of the fish. The content of nitrogen is calculated by the multiplication of the contents of raw proteins by the factor 0,16.
The calculations are based on the declaration and under condition of a content of nitrogen of fish of 3,0 % and under condition of a content of phosphor of the fish of 0,5 %.
The feeding table is for orientation. Feeding tests for the adjustment to individual conditions of production are recommendable.
Good manufacturing practices (GMP) are the practices required in order to conform to the guidelines recommended by agencies that control authorization and licensing for manufacture and sale of food, drug products, and active pharmaceutical products. These guidelines provide minimum requirements that a pharmaceutical or a food product manufacturer must meet to assure that the products are of high quality and do not pose any risk to the consumer or public.
