Optimal Aquafeed

Innovating to meet the unique needs of aquaculture producers.

We design feed formulations for specific species and aquaculture systems.

Optimal Aquafeed connects aquaculture producers to high-quality, nutritional, value-added feed products. Just as varying soils require different inputs to produce quality crops, aquaculture producers face varying needs and challenges based on what species they’re feeding and where they’re located.

Our approach begins with listening and learning about each producer’s unique operations in order to produce the right high-protein feed ingredients. Through strategic partnerships and innovative processes, we can incorporate high-quality agricultural products, along with plant-based proteins, algae and other single-cell protein ingredients to successfully meet the growing needs of our customers.
