AMERICAN GROWN SOY IS HELPING FEED OUR FISH
PRESENTED BY OUR PARTNER
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT
AND YOUR FISH IS MOST LIKELY EATING AMERICAN SOY
WHAT IS YOUR FISH EATING?
Most likely, the the farmed fish you are eating was raised on a healthy diet of AMERICAN SOYBEANS.
Soybeans are one of the world’s best non-fish sources of essential omega-3 fatty acids, healthy proteins, and unsaturated fats. High-quality soy protein is fed to farmed fish and shellfish, to support their growth and healthy development.
SHOWING WILD FISH SOME LOVE
Soybean meal, soy protein concentrates, soybean oil, and other vegetable proteins and oils, can replace from one-third to one-half of the fishmeal in feeds for many farmed species, reducing the need for wild-caught fish for fishmeal.
By eating fish that are fed a diet primarily of soy, instead of fish, we can all show our wild fish some love and help our oceans sustain themselves.

HOW CAN WE MAKE SEAFOOD AFFORDABLE + ACCESSIBLE?
FARM RAISED SEAFOOD MAKES IT POSSIBLE
FARMED FISH IS A HEALTHY + AFFORDABLE PROTEIN THAT FAMILIES cAN ENJOY EVERYDAY
Today, Aquaculture offers a variety of species - from salmon to catfish, barramundi to bass - that are affordable, readily accessible and healthy for consumers. You can find many of these species in your local grocer as either fresh or frozen options.
HINT: Keep a few frozen options in your freezer so that dinner is always close at hand.
SOY PROVIDES A CONSISTENT + SUPER HEALTHY FEED FOR FISH
By feeding farmed fish a consistent, American grown, affordable product like soybeans, savings and benefits can be passed onto you. And when you decide to start eating fish a few times a week, our soy farmers can ramp up production to make sure there are enough fish for everyone.
DID YOU KNOW:
More soybeans are grown in the United States than anywhere else in the world
Newly harvested, high-quality soybeans are selected as the first step in soy product processing. The soybeans go through a series of cleaning, cracking, and dehulling processes, followed by oil extraction for cooking, biodiesel, and other uses.
The residue, consisting of defatted white soy flakes, is then toasted and ground to produce the soybean meal that has become a staple in fish feed rations worldwide.
One soy plant can provide oil for cooking, become biodiesel fuel that is good for the planet, feed our fish and support sustainable American farmers.
