Quality Fish Feed
Technical Information and Forms
High Quality, Long-term Solutions
Bio-Oregon fish feeds are manufactured in mills that have achieved the following certifications.
Bio-Oregon's fish feed factory operates a fully equipped test laboratory. Our skilled and experienced analysts have the on-site resources necessary to ensure all fish feed is tested for the most critical parameters against strict specifications prior to its release.
Raw Material QC
A key factor in the control of our fish feed manufacturing process is sampling and testing raw material deliveries prior to release to intake. Only those loads conforming to specification are accepted.
At the point of packing, only those tons of fish feed that pass our rigorous testing program are released to dispatch. Protein, oil, moisture and ash levels are determined and checked for conformity against the fish feed’s declaration (as shown on the bag label). Physical quality is assessed, from checking the fish feed pellet dimensions, density and dust level.
Special Focus on Physical Quality
Before delivery, all Bio-Oregon fish feeds must pass through the “quality window” where elasticity and water content are the four cornerstones. A pellet that passes these tests is deemed suitable for a well-functioning hatchery.

The Bio-Oregon fish feed line includes products that embrace the latest in raw material replacement technology, reducing our reliance on fishmeal and fish oil and improving price sustainability. From traditional fish feeds to specialty low phosphorus and broodstock feeds, our customers will benefit from a wide variety of fish feeding options.
We explore the frontiers of fish feed nutrition
Established in 1989, our central Research & Development (R&D) department employs an international team of highly skilled R&D specialists. Our specialists undertake major research projects on a variety of fish species using a top grade analytical laboratory, a research station and a fish feed pilot plant. We also work closely with numerous universities and research institutes in international partnerships thereby drawing together the best available expertise from around the world.
The nutrition department at Bio-Oregon’s fish feed research facility identifies the dietary needs of different fish species and establishes how different raw materials can be used to meet those nutritional requirements. Over the past ten years, scientific work has generated results that can be used to support reductions in the fishmeal and fish oil content of our products by partial substitution with vegetable proteins and a blend of vegetable oils. These findings contribute to the development of sustainable, modern aquaculture.
We strive for a superior customer experience
Bio-Oregon understands the need for timely deliveries. Our customers can rely on us to maintain their productivity through our advanced and effective logistics systems managed by highly motivated staff.

Bio-Oregon utilizes a variety of cost-effective methods of transport, from road transport supplying small fish farms and fish hatcheries, to boats and barges delivery feed directly to remote sites.
