Who We Are

Daybrook processes Gulf Menhaden into fishmeal and fish oil products. Fishmeal is a high protein feed ingredient, and fish oil is used in aquaculture feeds and dietary supplements.

The company’s operations account for approximately 43% of the annual Gulf Menhaden industry catch. Sustainability is at the core of Daybrook’s operations and supply chain model. An integral part of this sustainable development approach is ensuring the protection of Gulf Menhaden fishery to ensure this resource’s sustainability.

This commitment is evident in our adherence to the industry endorsed Fisheries Management Plan, which operates under the federal oversight of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Daybrook is also a member of the Menhaden Advisory Committee to the Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commission, an initiative that drives the conservation, development, and full utilization of the fishery resources of the Gulf of Mexico.
