Skretting has released a dedicated grower feed for farmed tilapia, initially marketing it to farmers across Africa.

Optiline will initially be made available to tilapia farmers across Africa and preparations are ongoing to distribute it to other main production regions globally.

“Optiline is the latest solution to come from Skretting’s long-term commitment to the tilapia sector,” explained Mahmoud Haidar, species manager tilapia at Skretting.

“This new diet is designed to provide maximum value for farmers of this fish and to help them improve the sustainability of their operations. Through faster growth and superior feed conversion when following an optimal feeding frequency management, Optiline provides tilapia farmers everywhere with the opportunity to achieve improved fillet yield while lowering production costs,” he added.

Farming of tilapia takes place in a variety of aquaculture systems, from earthen ponds and cages to flow through and closed recirculation tanks, each with their own unique and challenges. Optiline ensures an optimised and consistent energy supply specific to the species and meets this farming sector’s increasing demand for higher growth rates at a lower feed conversion ratio.
