IN BRIEF - Wine & beer residues as nutritional elements in aquaculture

Thursday, September 28, 2023

The integration of wine and beer residues is considered a viable nutritional and functional additive in fish feeds.

Recently, the University of Cádiz shared the findings from the UBAGALAC project. This project has been focused on exploring new ingredients to enhance the quality of feeds in aquaculture since 2020. The initiative has been coordinated by Dr. Juan Miguel Mancera from the University of Cádiz and Dr. Francisco Javier Moyano from the University of Almería.

In this regard, the University of Cádiz states:

The proposal and development of UBAGALAC arise from the growing interest in incorporating ingredients with biological activity into fish feeds, which can benefit the health and resilience of fish against adverse effects such as environmental stress, declining water quality, and potential diseases. These bioactive compounds, with antioxidant and/or immunostimulatory functions, have diverse natures (terpenes, carotenoids, phenolic compounds, etc.) and are often naturally present in many byproducts of the agri-food industry, including those generated in the production of alcoholic beverages (such as wine and beer).
