Brief Project Summary:

Taurine is a critical component in many feed applications in aquaculture and companion animals that utilize soybean-based and other plant-based products. Current sources are unreliable and costly. The development of a cost-effective reliable source of taurine will impact cost competitiveness of soy-based feed ingredients in selected diets (aquaculture and companion animals).
