China dominates the market

China dominates the aquaculture industry in the world, with its massive production and consumption of low trophic-level carp species and its rapidly rising output and exports of tilapia. With the development of aquaculture in the country, the Chinese feed industry has faced some challenges, such as low popularity of formulated feed among small-scale farmers and high demand for trash fish as feed input, water pollution, use of trash fish provision of accurate nutrition and feeding, antibiotic residues, and fish meal and fish oil issues, among others. In order to address the aforementioned issues in the feed industry, the Chinese government released some policy changes related to aquaculture in its 13th Five-year plan. The government has been actively working to control feed quality, with investments in research programs to support nutrition and feed studies and issued a series of standards to control quality with respect to nutrition and safety and to support the modern feed industry.
