Ensiling: Finding A New Use for Fish Waste
In 2016 the Newfoundland Aquaculture Industry Association (NAIA), in cooperation with their member salmon farming companies, completed a project to demonstrate the potential industrial application and biosecurity benefits of on-site carcass ensiling. The project aimed to test the utility of ensiling systems under the unique climatic and operational conditions we encounter here in Newfoundland and Labrador, and to encourage the expansion of silage utilization capacity in our province.
This presentation will discuss the results of this project, and highlight the partnership with west coast company New World Dairy.
