Novel salmon feed by integrated bioprocessing of non-food biomass

We develop novel salmon feed by integrating bioprocessing of non-food biomass and bioprocessing technologies to exploit woody biomass, such as spruce trees and cultivated brown macroalgae (Saccharina latissima and Alaria esculenta) as sustainable supply of high-quality proteins in feed for Atlantic salmon. We address pre-processing techniques and enzymatic hydrolysis to convert cellulose and hemicellulose from the wood biomass and macroalgae to fermentable sugars. Then we use fermentation technology on special yeast strains to produce yeast as a high-quality feed ingredient. Synergies between the two feedstocks and optimal resource utilization are achieved by combining the two sugar streams, and by making use of nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P) and micronutrients in the macroalgae to optimize the fermentation media. We also perform screening of promising microorganisms (primarily yeasts), and evaluate downstream processing methods to optimize nutritional value and beneficial health effects of the final yeast products.
