Description:

Since 2001, Kiotech International plc and the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) have successfully developed a wide range of unique feeding attractants for sports angling and commercial fishing. The attractants based on novel pheromone technology are now distributed worldwide in over 42 countries and have been successful in contributing to both the capture of record and trophy fish and to increasing the overall success of individual anglers. However, the pheromone technology has much wider application, particularly in improving the efficiency and sustainability of the worldwide aquaculture industry. The development of the pheromone technology has two principal objectives. Firstly, in the short-term the application of pheromone products will increase the feeding activity of farmed fish and therefore the uptake of existing fish-based feeds within the aquaculture industry. The principal advantages will be an increase in the growth of the fish and a reduction in the amount of waste from uneaten feed, which results in additional costs to the fish-farmer and significant environmental damage. Secondly, in the longer term the pheromone-based technology will be used to permit the use of more sustainable forms of proteins within feeds, which are not based on fish oils or proteins. This approach will further conserve and protect wild fish populations and provide a sustainable base for the large-scale expansion of the aquaculture sector.
