Study examines feed conversion efficiency in aquaculture

Do producers measure feed conversion in aquaculture correctly, and how does it compare with other livestock?

A study recently performed by researchers to better understand feed efficiency at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for a Livable Future found that, unlike popular belief, farmed fish and shrimp convert protein and calories in feed to edible seafood at rates like livestock (i.e., cattle, pigs and chickens).
