Low Ash Fish Meal
by Gary Pfalzbot
About the Author

Low Ash Menhaden meal differs from conventional commodity fishmeal by the additional process developed to remove a large amount of the bone. The resulting meal has a significantly reduced ash content, and a corresponding increase in protein. This meal is ideal in situations where a lower mineral content is needed. This process results in a meal with a much smaller particle size.
