In aquaculture, the fish feed pellet size directly affects the growth and health of fish. Correctly choosing the right pellet size and shape can ensure that fish take in the right amount of nutrients and improve aquaculture efficiency.

Factors affecting fish feed pellet size

The choice of feed pellet size should be based on factors such as fish species, growth stage and water temperature. Juvenile fish need smaller pellets to suit their mouth size, while adult fish need larger pellets.

In addition, different fish have different preferences for pellets, with some preferring smaller pellets and others preferring larger ones. Water temperature also affects feed intake, as fish metabolize slower at lower water temperatures and require smaller pellets to ensure digestion and absorption.

The importance of the right pellet shape

In addition to the size of the pellet, the shape of the fish feed pellets is also critical in affecting the digestion and absorption of fish feed. The right pellet shape improves the stability and solubility of the feed, and facilitates the distribution and uptake of the feed in the water.
