Since fish itself is a highly proteinaceous commodity. It’s been preferred on behalf of other food stuffs. Similar to fish the fishmeal also imparts proteins of high nutritive value, because of the presence of 22 essential amino acids including the most important amino acid-Lysine, which of course, is rarely present in other feeds/ food stuffs.
The fish meal removes the moisture which in turn increases the concentration of proteins available for the growth. The meal is also rich in B-group vitamin namely – Riboflavin, Pantothenic acid, Niacin and Choline. The powdered fishmeal is rich in minerals like Calcium, Phosphorus, Iodine etc.
Fish meal contains other growth promoting and protein utilization factors that are found to be easily digestible for the poultry and aqua animals. The protein efficiency ratio (PER) has been worked out to find the growth studies in animals and farm grown animals.
Unlike other vegetable protein meals, fishmeal contains very less fibre content which is useful in getting the food easily digested and also for the energy calculation.
