Manufacturers of animal feed in Denmark is considering the possibility of industrial production of the sea star, and further processing it into meal and use in feeding of pigs.
According to representatives of the University of Aarhus in Denmark, the practice of using sea stars in the mixed feed have been used in 80-ies, but soon it was discontinued because of the epidemic of mad cow disease. As a result of sea star appeared in the list of components prohibited by the leadership of Europe for use in animal feed.
However, to date collected data on the capacity and safety of the use of meal of sea stars in animal feed will change the law and re-enable the starfish to the list of allowed ingredients. It is expected that a decision on this issue will be made this summer.
However, experts note that the use of this component can be an important part of the strategy of Denmark to use exclusively organic feed by the beginning of 2017. In addition, meal of sea stars in animal feed will reduce the excretion of nitrogen in pigs according to several recent studies.

According to the report, the key ingredients for this period will remain the same – it's corn, soybeans, riboksina flour. And if farming the most popular ingredient is corn, producers of aquaculture primarily prefer soy.
However, the main driver of growth in the coming years experts predict will remain Asia-Pacific region. As has been repeatedly pointed out in various studies, the water temperature in the seas of this region is fairly stable throughout the year, with the result that it is most suitable for commercial cultivation of aquaculture.
