Prawn eating crustaceans – perhaps a Krill Burger better?

The shrimp industry initially used shrimp head meal in its feed mix – way back.

However, even though shrimp heads were effectively cooked or even sun dried – the notion of shrimp heads in shrimp diet became a non starter in markets – especially with the mad cow prion disease.

In this experiment shrimp meal (shrimp head and shrimp body) was used to compare with krill in a shrimp aquaculture feed – which does not translate to current commercial practice.

So why not go direct to the end consumer – perhaps a krill and pea burger?
