There is no doubt that the sustainable development of the aquaculture sector is the highest priority of all those involved in this process.


Raw materials are not inexhaustible and obviously their use requires rationality and best practices.


While the need for marine proteins is constantly increasing, targeted actions are needed that result in a real saving of raw materials.


Dibaq’s research and development department, aims to create products that will result in maximum performance with the smallest environmental footprint. It is with great pride, excitement and optimism we share our achievement for 2022 target, that 93% of marine ingredients used, come from trimmings – by products and not from wild fisheries.


Customers are provided with technical advice and support so as to achieve the best possible result.


It is clear that achieving as low as possible feed conversion rates entails apart from the beneficial use of raw materials and significant improvement of financial results, which also means sustainable business management.


However, we must not overlook that the good management of raw materials also implies the best practices of production management. 


So it seems that in order to form an essential condition where the environment will have a primary role, all participants of fish farming  should be possessed by the same concept of saving resources and substantial protection of the environment.


It is not enough to produce correctly and in sustainable terms, but to be able to transport and distribute products on the basis of perfect management conditions. 


The environment concerns all of us and the end result is the responsibility of all of us. So we should be talking much more about environmental culture and less about individual actions of everyone.


At Dibaq, we support initiatives and strategies in the direction of creating a culture of environmental management. We want to be part of a large chain of partners who embrace our own priorities and needs. At the end of the day it’s not a choice, it’s our obligation. Let’s blue revolution have the green future it deserves.



European and therefore Spanish legislation is reviewing maximum content limits and intensifying the control of certain undesirable substances in food, to increase and improve the food safety of the products we consume.


           One of the substances that is being focused on is PFA’s (PerFluoroAlquilated substances). Clear examples of this interest are Recommendation (EU) 2022/1431 of the commission of August 24, 2022 on the monitoring of perfluoroalkyl substances in food (,


Commission Regulation (EU) 2022/2388 of December 7, 2022 amending Regulation (EC) No. 1881/2006 with regard to the maximum content of perfluoroalkyl substances in certain food products (


  and in Spanish legislation with Royal Decree 3/2023, of January 10, which establishes the technical-sanitary criteria for the quality of drinking water, its control and supply (


           At Dibaq, aware of the importance and awareness that our clients have of their products in the eyes of final consumers, people, we want to help them control this emerging risk. For this reason, and although it is not applicable to animal feed, we anticipate and have implemented a PFA control plan in our food risk management. In order to eliminate animal feed as one of the risk sources of PFA’s in their products.

We are pleased to share our participation in the recent XXIII Aquaculture Seminar and in the OmegaPeixe WorkShop, an event that brought together experts from the Portuguese industry to discuss strategies that promote the sustainability, competitiveness and diversification of the sector.


Both meetings brought together professionals and creative minds from the country’s aquaculture, with the aim of addressing current and future challenges.


As fish feed manufacturers committed to quality and innovation, we believe that these platforms are essential to keep us informed and connected with the latest developments in the sector in Portugal. Sustainability, competitiveness and diversification are essential elements for the growth of aquaculture, and we are proud to contribute to these objectives.


During the seminar, we had the opportunity to interact with passionate colleagues and experts, and we shared our perspectives on how to move towards a brighter future for aquaculture. Rich conversations and inspiring ideas motivate us to continue to innovate and collaborate to address the challenges and seize the opportunities emerging in our industry.


We thank all the participants, organizers and collaborators of both the XXIII Aquaculture Seminar and the OmegaPeixe WorkShop for creating a space conducive to the exchange of knowledge and collaboration. We are excited to continue to be an active part of these efforts and work together towards a strong future for global aquaculture.
