With an 8 % annual growth rate, aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector in the world (FAO, 2008). It can only be sustainable if it is supported by a similar increase in feed production. This had led to several developments to reduce and replace the amount of fishmeal/ oil in fish diets by plant based ingredients originating from by-products or from crops specifically cultured for this purpose. Although plant oils and proteins are available in bulk amounts, their application in fish feed is questionable as it induces more pressure on land-use due to increased agricultural production and competes with present use as food or feed. This drives several alternative feed source developments which are based on the use of residual streams. Novel feed ingredients based on residual stream conversion can in general be subdivided into two major classes: Single cell protein, mainly from yeast, microalgae and bacteria. These novel feed ingredients have the potential to be more sustainable than fish and plant based proteins/oils if they can be effectively produced from residual nutrients, waste streams or low value by-products from e.g. food or agro industries.
