Chemical and physical changes in fish feed (2017)$11,776
A small scoping project to see if detect chemical changes in Fish Feed samples can be detected and determine the feasibility of developing IR models for feed retention.The investigators will attempt to develop methods and analyse and interpret generated data for 17 samples by NMR and Vibrational Spectroscopy for: 4 formula variations (4 separate production runs) of one high retention product, including pre and post extrusion samples (= 8 samples). 4 formula variations (4 separate production runs) of one low retention product, including pre and post extrusion samples (8 samples). 1 pure starch sample
