Fish Feed Processing Plant Background & Necessity
Along with the development of aquaculture, aquafeed industry has also made a quite fast progress, especially in virtue of continue advancement of breeding technology, the culturing mode has turned into intensive cultivation from extensive fish farming, which provides vast space for fish feed production.
In line with the FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) report, the per capita fish consumption of human beings has exceeded beef consumption while farmed fish has surpassed wild caught. It is well known that fish feed plays a leading role in global aquaculture and fish farming field, making sure safe, abundant and affordable fish proteins, but meanwhile, the cost of aquatic feed is so high that affecting sustainable development of aquaculture industry.
Therefore, it is necessary, economic and practical for fish farmers or feed processing plants to establish their own fish feed processing plant rather than buying or importing feed from elsewhere.
Our feed pelletizing solutions feature great flexibility. According to different feed types, different output configuration can be customized. Livestock and poultry feed production solutions applicable for different animals like chicken, duck, rabbit, pig, etc. While our leading aquatic animals (fish, shrimp, crab, etc.) feed processing plant solutions meet customer’s individual line from 0.5 to 20 tons per hour production needs. For fish feed pellet line, we also provide two different types solution, one is floating fish feed line, the other is sinking feed production line
A complete pet food or fish feed pellet processing plant generally includes the following process:
Material crushing—>material mixing—>extruding process—>pellets drying—>oil spraying process—>pellets cooling—>pellet packing
