    Characterization of the aquafeed sub-sector in the Kyrgyz Republic: an aquafeed value chain analysis and preparation of a business plan for establishing a feed mill 2018

    Among many other factors, feed is a limiting factor, which accounts for a major share of the total operational cost of the aquaculture sector in Kyrgyz Republic. This study aims to analyze the value chain of aquafeed sub-sector including their possible constraints and develop a business plan for establishing small-scale aquafeed mill in the Kyrgyz Republic. This is the first post-USSR country case study which assesses the current status of the aquafeed sub-sector, aquafeed value chain, on-farm feeding and feed management practices, performance of different actors in terms of value addition and profitability, and feed regulations, institutions and policies and presents a business plan for small-scale aquafeed in Kyrgyz Republic. The study identifies the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in this sub-sector, and suggests a number of development strategies which would improve the performance of feed industry and farmers’ access to better feeds and ultimately support the development of aquaculture sector in Kyrgyz Republic. Quantitative data analysis result shows that the Kyrgyz aquafeed sub-sector is still in its infancy and its value chain is very simple; including only few actors comprising feed input suppliers, aquafeed producers, aquafeed traders and fish farmers, and all of them are doing their business profitably. Feed is a crucial input in fish farming which accounts for about 65 – 75 percent of the operational cost of fish production, which means that a substantial part of fish farmers’ income is transferred to feed manufacturers. Good quality feed is a prerequisite for increasing aquaculture productivity in Kyrgyz Republic where particularly fish farmers are using very little volume of commercial feed as supplementary feed. With potential of aquaculture intensification and lack of quality feed, establishment of a commercial feed mill in the country for both carps and trout may have a strong justification. The primary competitors of a new feed mill would be the existing locally manufactured feeds and the commercial feed that are being imported. Imported feeds are mainly for trout and often expensive and not available in the local market throughout the country. Public-private partnership operated feed mill in Kyrgyz Republic with the capacity of 500 kg/hour is expected to be profitable, with an anticipated profit of USD13 617 in year one, rising to USD 97 980 in year five. The Internal Rate of Return (IRR) of such a mill is estimated to be 19.1 percent, which is expected to be reasonably good. Therefore, the study recommends establishing a public-private partnership aquafeed mill in Kyrgyz Republic that would be feasible, viable and profitable. The major factors impacting on the performance of the value-chain relate to the feed ingredients, feed production, fish farmers, marketing and other service providers (e.g., financial, academic and research institutions, extension services). Aquafeed value chain shows reasonable promise although there are constrains and a lack of institutional, regulatory and policy environment to oversee this sectoral development. Aquafeed subsector can play an important role in aquaculture sector development as it has strong backward and forward linkages with aquaculture sector, which can eventually play an important role in the overall development of Kyrgyz economy. The study recommends various measures to develop the sub-sector including the establishment of additional feed mills and use of locally available raw feed materials, developing and strengthening quality control and inspection facilities, providing training and better organizational management of fish farms and improving the institutional, legal and policy environment.

    Guidelines for feed use in carp and trout production systems in Central Asia and Eastern Europe 2021
    Also available in:

    In aquaculture, the provision of high quality aquafeeds that satisfy the nutritional requirements of the culture species and optimize growth are a prerequisite to improving production yields, lowering production costs, and improving economic returns to farmers. Under semi-intensive and intensive carp and trout culture, aquafeed costs usually account for the highest single production cost, typically accounting for 50 – 60 percent of total production costs. The aquafeeds available to farmers vary widely with respect to quality, nutritional value and cost. Depending on the feed type, production system and farmer preferences, there are multiple feed management strategies that can be adopted by farmers. In order to optimise feed use and minimise feed production costs, it is essential that farmers select appropriate feeds and optimise their on farm feed management practices. These guidelines are designed to provide farmers with practical guidance on how to select feeds and to optimise their use by implementing appropriate on-farm feed management practices. The guidelines provide an introduction to fish nutrition with a focus on the dietary nutritional requirements of commercially cultured carps and trout. The types of aquafeeds (live feeds, supplementary, farm-made and commercially manufactured feeds), their composition and nutritional value, manufacture and use are discussed. On-farm feed management practices focus on feeding methods, feed storage, and methods to optimise feed consumption (calculating feed rations, feeding frequency, assessing appetite and the feeding response).

    Revitaliser le secteur de l’aquaculture au Kirgizistan- TCP/KYR/3502 2017
    Also available in:

    À la suite de la chute de l’Union soviétique, la production aquacole en Asie centrale a considérablement diminué et de nombreuses exploitations piscicoles opérationnelles ont été abandonnées. Les exploitations piscicoles en étang existantes et les nouvelles installations de production dans la République kirghize sont prometteuses, mais le manque d’expertise technique et d’industries périphériques limitent la croissance potentielle du secteur de l’aquaculture. Les pisciculteurs dépendent d’aliments composés coûteux importés ou de mauvaise qualité et, par conséquent, souffrent de faibles taux de production et d’une mauvaise rentabilité économique. Ce projet devait revitaliser le secteur de l’aquaculture en favorisant la production et l’utilisation d’aliments pour l’aquaculture de haute qualité, rentables et sécurisés. L’objectif était de soutenir les pisciculteurs et les communautés piscicoles afin de développer et d’optimiser durablement les pratiques de gestion des aliments à la ferme, accroissant ainsi la performance économique du secteur aquacole.
