Laarhoven, Bob (2017)
  • Publisher: Wageningen University

<p>There is a global demand for more feed resources to keep up with the increasing production of livestock. The hunger for resources is most urgent in the aquaculture sector, which to a large degree depends on the non-sustainable use of fish oil/ meal from wild fish. Aq... View more
