PAPAYA WASTE FOR FISH FEED

Hanging papaya

On November 5, the Fish Farmers Magazine “Aquaculture North America” published an article presenting a biotechnology company with a revolutionary way to use ultra-cheap agro-waste, such as papaya discards, as components in valuable biofuels and feed ingredients for growing fish. With “a proprietary evolutionary approach” the performance of various strains of microbes are enhanced and directed towards generating high-nutrition proteins and oils for fish feeds in a highly-competitive and cost-efficient manner. The “papaya for fish feed” project is launched in Hawaii. It is partly subsidised by the State of Hawaii.

Further projects using this same method with a wide variety of agricultural waste are in development. Investors see a tremendous economical potential of these revolutionary strain and process development projects, which are also said to have an important beneficial ecological impact.
