Fishmeal is made of fish industry waste and fish that is unsuitable for human consumption. It is a nutritious high-protein (60-70% DM) feed. Fishmeal is fed to pigs, poultry and fur-bearing animals to cover their protein and essential amino acid intake.
Fish and fish waste contain almost all of the necessary vitamins, especially B-group vitamins (whole fish also contains vitamins A and D). Fish products are also rich in minerals, especially calcium and phosphorus. Depending on the material, one kilogram of fishmeal can contain 50-60 g of calcium and 25-35 g of phosphorus. Fishmeal dry matter can contain up to 12% fat.
