New feed trial unit Wageningen University & Research up and running

21 December 2020

This year ZEBCARE realized a nice project at Wageningen University & Research (WUR) Aquatic Research Facility (Carus-ARF). During summertime we have installed a new system for feed experiments. The new system allows researchers to perform experiments on the digestibility of feed ingredients, determining nutrient requirements of fish and fish welfare with important aquaculture species. Experiments can be performed under completely controlled predefined conditions in fresh, marine, cold or warm water environment.

As usual, this project was developed in close collaboration with researchers and the aquatic research facility staff. Now at the end of the year, after a few months using the system, we received positive feedback. “The system works as expected. The collaboration with ZEBCARE was a pleasure as usual. Their advice and pro-active approach in finding solutions resulted in a fitting and functional system. Building tailor made systems with integrated new technologies is challenging and unexpected issues can occur. ZEBCARE took full responsibility and solved the issues to our satisfaction. We are really thankful for the work they did.” said Menno ter Veld, manager of CARUS-ARF.
