Over the coming months, Skretting will roll out the RCX concept for Atlantic salmon grown in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) - a range fully optimised for RAS.

It is hoped this new concept will reduce the risks for the new growout RAS salmon sector coming on stream and highlights Skretting’s long-term commitment to helping the RAS sector thrive.

“Skretting’s current market-leading range - RC - has been a top performer for years, and reduced the impact of indirect waste into RAS by improving faecal stability,” explained Saravanan Subramanian, a global product manager at Skretting. “The next generation - RCX - takes this one step further by ensuring consistent structural integrity through certified factory auditing.”

The Feed Production team at Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre in Stavanger has developed strict quality parameters and will audit Skretting facilities to ensure these rigorous standards are followed.

The new concept uses Skretting’s existing and RCX-specific structural integrity standards. Skretting already ensures the nutritional quality of feeds through a worldwide network, including globally-referenced near-infrared spectrometry calibrations. “The factory certification takes our level of quality to the next level,” said Stuart Fyfe, operations team leader at Skretting ARC. “We will have a zero tolerance for non-conformance on the physical quality of RCX feeds.”

RCX will be launched initially in North America for Atlantic salmon, followed by other locations and species around the world.
