Molofeed has announced it will invest in a new research and development (R&D) facility located in Natal, Brazil, which is considered the biggest shrimp farming region in the country.

Within this new recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) R&D facility, Molofeed looks to develop advanced hatchery nutrition solutions and new hatchery-related technologies for shrimp and finfish.

The company has said the new state-of-the-art research facility will upscale its value origination, and allow Molofeed to fast-track several hatchery solutions in its pipeline, carve new technologies, and accelerate new collaborations. Additionally, Molofeed foresees the facility contributing to aquaculture as we unchain efficiencies across all sections of the hatchery operations worldwide.

“By providing customers with a more focused and responsive R&D, we’re expanding the ability to better understand the species we raise and as a result, unleash more efficient use of key natural resources, so that the industry will be better prepared to deal with future challenges and continue on this amazing growth trajectory,” said Marcell Boaventura, CEO of Molofeed.
