I just wanted to try and help a few people understand the difference between the 2 types of feed you can buy…pelletised and extruded, pelletised pellet has been compressed very tightly to get the shape whilst extruded pellet goes through a more complex costly system to achieve the structure of the pellet.

The reason why this is important to us as fish farmers and also to you as fishery owners is waste!!!!! Pelletised feed only tends to keep it shape in water for around 20-30 minutes were as extruded feed can keep its shape for up to 24 hours….

This matters because????

If pelletised feed isn’t eaten within a small time frame then the fish only tend to eat a percentage of the feed because the rest of the feed is to broken down to eat and becomes undigested proteins on the lake bed. You therefore lose efficiency from the food and effectively lose money on uneaten food.

By using a better quality extruded feed not only are you normally buying a better quality feed with fish meal and animal meal proteins in you are buying a pellet that keeps it shape for much longer therefore getting better growth from your fish and less waste out of your feed.

Before you buy fish food just ask yourself what you want from it first and then make an informed decision.
