Balance & Harmony

Specialised feed for advanced aquaculture technology

Salmon

Salmo salar

Fresh Water Feeds

Solid investment in the freshwater phase leads to a large and healthy smolt – the best foundation for good health, survival and growth after transfer. Thanks to extensive experience with land-based aquaculture, BioMar has developed fry feed and grower feed specially designed to meet the challenges that occur at every stage of a fishes life and the full range of production systems.

CPK

CPK

CPK is BioMar’s grower feed for juveniles in flow-through systems. CPK is manufactured to permit maximum growth at the same time as supporting the fish through the physiological challenges they encounter during production.

CPK is based on selected protein ingredients, combined with the right quantities of vitamins and minerals. CPK is formulated using a high level of the amino acid histidine, adapted to the fish’s particular nutritional requirements at this stage of its life. Histidine plays a particularly important role in preventing nutrition-related cataracts.

Supply of important fatty acids is secured by means of selected oils. We have also taken account of the interplay between the various feed components, which is important for achieving the optimal effect and yield. CPK has been proven to have a beneficial effect on growth.

ORBIT CPK

ORBIT CPK

ORBIT is BioMar's brand that has been specifically adapted to RAS systems. ORBIT focuses on growth, water quality and the load on the biofilter. ORBIT provides perfectly balanced nutrition for the fish, and is manufactured to allow maximum utilisation of nutrients.

ORBIT for salmon is designed for high growth and a low FCR. Reduced load on biofilters provides better water quality and allows increased production using the existing biofilter capacity.

High physical quality and precise nutrient levels
The effects are achieved by high physical quality, a high level of digestibility, high and precise levels of essential nutrients and a reduction in faecal production.

Transfer Feeds

Salmon undergo significant changes when they transition from fresh water to the sea. In addition to being exposed to a considerably higher infection risk in the sea, the fish’s immune defense and barriers are weakened as a result of the smoltification process. Consequently, the fish are exposed to a risk of disease and increased mortality during this phase. Intro and Intro Q are recommended for use before and after release into the sea respectively. The carefully selected functional components of the Intro package strengthen immune defense and barriers. This ensures optimal performance in the hatchery, and a more robust and resistant smolt after release.

Intro

Intro - for maximum performance in the hatchery and a robust smolt at transfer

A strengthened immune system and intestinal health are important contributions to a successful transfer.

Intro is designed for maximum performance in the hatchery, during and after the transfer and contributes to a fish that is better equipped for contact with seawater. It strengthens the fish's outer barriers, the immune system, the effect of vaccines and strengthens intestinal health.

Intro Q

Intro Q

ntro Q has been developed to ensure a robust fish that grows and develops optimally during the critical start-up period in the sea, and thus provides the foundation for successful production results.Intro Q contains a finely balanced combination of components that support the fish’s physiology and defence systems.

AREA OF USE:

  • Strengthened immune system.
  • Better intestinal health.
  • Supports osmoregulation. 
  • Increased appetite.

Intro Q+

Intro Q+

Intro Q + contains the effective standard package from Intro Q which, with the help of biofunctional components, supports the fish's physiology and defence systems. The feed is supplemented with live probiotic bacteria that help to modulate the intestinal flora and ensure better disease defence and feed utilization. The feed is delivered with Q which enhances appetite and thus also the absorption of the functional components in the feed.

AREA OF USE:

  • Strengthened intestinal health
  • Increased disease defense  
  • Against ulceration
  • High feed intake and rapid growth
