You made a complex topic very understandable, which is not an easy task.


Dr. Dumas provided expert guidance in designing and conducting digestibility and growth trials in salmon for our novel canola protein concentrate. Our trials were successfully completed, and he provided valuable interpretation of the nutrition and growth data and their relevance to commercial applications.
