The recent HATCH survey revealed that for shrimp farmers, the main concern is disease risks, far beyond feed costs, while quality of feed was hardly mentioned (https://www.shrimpfarm.tech/, 2019).

In this article, we will demonstrate that there could be everything to gain by changing this mindset.
