BIOMIN Enters Next Phase in WiseFeed Project for Higher Performing and More Sustainable Aquafeeds

BIOMIN has announced the start of its experiment work in the WiseFeed project —a collaborative industry and academic network with support from European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program— to improve the sustainability and performance of aquafeeds.

“Performance, profitability and the environment are themes that we encounter on a regular basis in our discussion with clients across the world,” noted Edward Manchester, Global Head of
