Objectifs
Our goal is to evaluate and describe the potential benefits of yucca and soapbark saponin extracts as ingredients for shrimp and fish diets. Further we expect to describe how integrated farming systems of aquaculture and agriculture can be developed into sustainable farming in arid environments. In addition to dissertations and peer reviewed journal articles, we expect to produce posters and presentations at professional meetings and at local field days. Demonstration projects will be at experiment stations and on-farm with local cooperators.

Descriptif
We will utilize a series of lab and field tests to determine the efficacy of the saponins in fish and shrimp diets. We may also consider additional ingredients as alternative protein sources in place of fishmeal. Integration of aquaculture with irrigated agriculture will be evaluated to confirm the efficacy of rearing crops, some of which could be feed ingredients, with effluents from the fish production.
