Soy Checkoff working to increase acquaculture soybean use

Soy Checkoff working to increase acquaculture soybean use

Soy-based feeds touted as a good replacement for fish meal.

It’s no wonder that aquaculture is catching on, considering the growing global population, increasing individual incomes and stronger awareness of the health benefits of seafood. In fact, aquaculture is one of the fastest-growing sectors in global animal agriculture. The farmer-leaders of the United Soybean Board (USB) and the soy checkoff are hooked on these prospective customers of U.S. soy.

Watch the video to hear from checkoff farmer-leader Sharon Covert, soybean farmer from Tiskilwa, Ill., about USB’s work to develop the global aquaculture market for U.S. soybean farmers.
