SAA shares quarterly update on 13 projects covering 7 species
The Soy Aquaculture Alliance (SAA) has posted a 2023 first quarter report describing SAA Research Projects between January 1 and March 30, 2023.
Currently, SAA supports 13 projects (eight active and five approved projects) designed to improve soy utilization in seven aquaculture species, including Florida Pompano, Rainbow Trout (2), California Yellowtail, Atlantic Salmon (2), Largemouth Bass (2), Marine Shrimp and Channel Catfish (2). Two additional projects address the social license of aquaculture and the need for training of aquaculture nutritionists.
These projects represent a total SAA checkoff investment of $826,403 with an additional $556,628 in checkoff funding from the United Soybean Board (USB) toward aquaculture market development. Note that this investment spans four fiscal years and does not include completed projects.
Each project spans 12 months, with the exception of one with a no-cost extension. The full report details the overall status of active research projects, but in summary, here are the noteworthy updates from this reporting period:
Past reports and project overviews of all checkoff research are available in the National Soybean Checkoff Research Database. Links to individual projects are included in the project overviews in this report.
