Aquafarming is emerging as a successful small-scale bio-industry in India. In order to sustain this industry an organized feed industry is essential to manufacture and supply quality controlled compounded feeds for the different stages and production systems The exogenous feeds used in aquaculture can be broadly grouped into (i) supplementary feeds and (ii) complete feeds. Supplementary feeds, by and large are empirical formulations, which do not provide the essential nutrients in adequate levels and balanced proportions as in the case of complete feeds.
