The global fish meal market grew at a CAGR of around 5% during 2015-2020. Fish meal refers to a feed ingredient that is primarily manufactured by cooking, pressing, drying, and milling raw fish or fish trimmings. It is widely available in the form of cakes or powder and serves as a natural protein source for aquaculture, poultry, and livestock. Fish meal is usually produced from high oil containing species of fish, such as sardine, anchovy, capelin, menhaden, etc. It offers essential fatty acids, lipids, vitamins, and minerals, providing high nutritional value for enhanced growth and productivity.
The expanding aquaculture sector coupled with the increasing demand for high-quality seafood products is propelling the market for fish meal. Furthermore, the rising environmental concerns towards the negative impact of chemical-based feed additives on the aquatic ecosystem are also augmenting the need for naturally-sourced alternatives. Additionally, the high prevalence of numerous chronic disorders due to the consumption of heavy metals, such as mercury, lead, cadmium, etc., that are present in conventionally-cultured seafood is further driving the market for fish meal. Apart from this, the growing industrialization of meat and dairy production is also bolstering the demand for high-grade feed additives, such as fish meal, for stimulating reproduction, boosting metabolism, mitigating disease outbreaks, etc. Moreover, the increasing awareness towards numerous benefits of fish-based ingredients in enhancing the quality and performance of animal feed is further catalyzing the global market. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global fish meal market to continue its moderate growth during the next five years.
