Functional feed and preventive health: a necessary shift for the production of tilapia

| May 18 | 2022

The Fish Site and leading functional feed producer Phileo will be exploring the latest issues in tilapia health in a webinar on 18 May.

Featuring tilapia experts based in China, Brazil, Africa and Southeast Asia, the event will cover a wide range of issues relating to tilapia health within these key production regions, including how functional feeds can help to safeguard tilapia health.

Phileo recently published a comprehensive manual for tilapia farmers and feed producers detailing guidelines and recent trial results demonstrating the applicability of yeast probiotics and postbiotics for the tilapia industry. It is part of a new programme that aims to improve tilapia gut health and support disease prevention strategies, the details of which will be explained by Otavio Serino Castro, the company’s global species manager.

The webinar will then branch out into a discussion about the performance of the tilapia sectors in the world’s key producing regions and the range of challenges that farmers in these regions face.

Moderated by Rob Fletcher, senior editor of The Fish Site, the event aims to cover key issues from all these regions and offer practical advise to farmers, feed millers, regulators and policymakers alike.
