According to the company, who is a subsidiary firm of UAC of Nigeria (UACN), Aquamax catfish feed is expected to provide nutrition in a stable and concentrated form, which will enable catfish to feed efficiently and grow to its full potential.

Larry Ettah, MD of UACN, said, "Our investment in catfish feed is borne out of the strong and long-term fundamentals of the animal nutrition and catfish feed markets. We are committed to a strategy of increasing profitability through innovative and sustainable nutritional solutions, while leveraging our position and capabilities to meet global standards in the industry. We are also confident that we have the right strategy and the right people to drive our vision."

Modupe Asanmo, MD of Livestock Feeds, noted that the Aquamax catfish feed is fresh, affordable and has a longer floating period to meet the nutritional requirements of catfish.

"As the demand for nutritional foods witnesses a steep rise, the consumption of fish is bound to grow even as per capita income improves due to growing human population,” stated Asanmo.
