This study is to improve food security and remove environmental problems of excessive cassava peels and reduce high cost of fish feed. Maize is an important component of feed in Nigeria’s expanding livestock sector and its demand is always increasing. Vast quantities of cassava peels produced as waste during cassava processing pose serious environmental problems hence, the need to convert this waste into High Quality, Valuable and Economical feed ingredient. The technical and economic feasibility of the transformation of cassava peels to high quality animal feed have already been demonstrated by CGIAR scientist in 2015.
