The global feed producer and supplier Skretting is launching its brand in Honduras and Nicaragua to support the growing need for sustainable shrimp feeds in both these important aquaculture markets in Central America.

Alex Obach, managing director, Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC), said: “The arrival of Skretting in Honduras and Nicaragua is a very important milestone for Central America’s aquaculture industry.”

“Skretting wholeheartedly believes that given the right support and the confidence to grow, this is a region that can make an increasingly valuable contribution to the global growth of sustainable aquaculture production.”

He added that the brand’s expansion into Honduras and Nicaragua will expand upon Skretting’s existing feed supply relationships with several farming operations.

The expansion of the brand in Central America follows the successful launch of Skretting in Ecuador and Peru in August 2016.

Since the establishment of Skretting in these countries, shrimp farming operations in both markets and across Latin America has advanced from the support provided by the company’s worldwide R&D knowledge, as well as its local insight and experience.

In particular, many of the region’s shrimp producers continue to be shown at special events and seminars that aligning the appropriate high-specification nutrition with precise feed management procedures could bring a new golden era for the region’s shrimp farming sector.

Crucially, they have also learnt the importance of correct feeding in the first stages of the life cycle, and how to optimise growth based on the genetics of their shrimp stocks.
