Initial Proposal for the Research and Development
of Aquatic Zooplankton (ZP), Phytoplankton (PP), and Macrophytes (M) as
a Sustainable Yield Replacement
for Fish Meal in Commercial
(The New Aquafarming)
The objectives of this proposal are summarized as follows. Basically, it is
intended to generate R&D funding for the purpose of defining the commercial
culture biomass of zooplankton (ZP) and duckweed, an aquatic macrophyte (M)
by ulitising the blooming culture potential of phytoplankton (PP). That definition
evaluates the process potential for;
a) development of a sustainable and commercially viable fish meal substitute.
b) achievement of a sequential ’stepping stone’ funding investment strategy
based on targeted R&D result outcomes.
c) Evaluation of the research findings, extrapolation the potential, and establishment
of a pilot scale/commercial extrusion milling process.
d) evaluation and costing of available commercial components and processors
for the establishment of the commercial production phase.
e) presentation of regular findings and research result reports incidental to
the directional investment strategy.
