The U.S. Grains Council’s (USGC’s) office in Southeast Asia has been working with Dr. Romi Novriadi, director for the World Aquaculture Society – Asia Pacific Chapter and vice president of the Indonesia Aquaculture Society, to complete tank trials in Indonesia that suggest shrimp can be fed up to 15 percent distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) while maintaining commercial performance. In this video, Dr. Novriadi highlights the testing facilities and describes the next step in the process, pond trials. The results from these trials indicate DDGS could play a significant role in aquaculture diets as the industry seeks sustainable, plant-based feed sources.
