Freshwater Colloquium: Finding Alternative Fish Feeds for Aquaculture
October 24, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:50 pm
Dr. Wendy Sealey will present “Finding Alternative Fish Feeds for Aquaculture” as part of the School of Freshwater Sciences fall colloquium.
Dr. Sealey is an expert in the field of aquaculture fish physiology and nutrition, having served for 12 years in the role of Research Fish Physiologist with the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) at the Bozeman Fish Technology Center (BFTC) in Bozeman, Montana. In this role, she provided scientific expertise and nutrition technical support to federal and private hatcheries. Currently, she is a Research Physiologist (fish nutritionist) with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
With the rapid rise in feed ingredient costs and the finite source of and growing demand for fish meal, alternative aquafeed ingredients are necessary to minimize feed costs. In her current role, with the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Trout Grains Program, Dr. Sealey helps oversee the state-of-the-art diet manufacturing capabilities at the BFTC for making aquatic animal feeds. In this talk, you will hear about Dr. Sealey’s work involving the development of sustainable feeds and feed ingredients that can provide nutrients to the fish, while maintaining optimal fitness and health.
This presentation is open to students, faculty, staff, alumni and the public.
The Colloquium series creates a platform where students, faculty, and scientists discuss emergent issues related to freshwater science research. Invited speakers present specific topics of their research, as well as policy, commercial, and industrial experiences.
