When using high inclusion levels of plant based ingredients in fish feed, the presence of Anti-Nutritional Factors (ANF) needs to be taken into consideration. Non Starch Polysaccharides (NSP) are recognized as true ANF, causing impaired growth performance and feed utilization. NSPase could counteract these negative effects by breaking down the NSP.
