Transforming aquaculture with Blue IMPACT
BioMar launches Blue IMPACT™, a feed concept that minimises the environmental impact of aquaculture. The first feed in the series addresses the challenges faced by cage farming in the Baltic Sea area by aiming to reduce total phosphorus in the feed.
BioMar has developed Blue IMPACT™, a feed concept for those wanting to take the next natural step in aquaculture sustainability while ensuring a viable business model that considers the health and performance of aquaculture. Blue IMPACT™ considers the environmental impact of aquaculture feeds on our planet.
Blue IMPACT™ Aqua – caring for life below water
Blue IMPACT™ Aqua is the first range of feeds developed under this concept of ocean and environmental stewardship. Blue IMPACT™ Aqua feeds enable the farmer to address the challenges facing our oceans, such as overfishing, biodiversity loss and ocean acidification and coastal eutrophication, while providing healthy and nutritious food for generations to come.
Earlier this year, BioMar announced the development of a feed that has a focus on the challenges facing cage farming in the Baltic Sea area. Developed in close cooperation with fish farmers who share BioMar’s dedication to sustainable aquaculture development, available Blue IMPACT™ Aqua is now available to minimise environmental footprint of fish farming activity by reducing phosphorus emissions. Blue IMPACT™ Aqua not only targets reducing total phosphorus in the feed by enabling a better utilisation of the phosphorus available in the feed, but also increased fish production with the same phosphorus discharge.
Blue IMPACT™ Aqua feeds have been developed in close cooperation between BioMar and farming companies Heimon Kala Oy (Finland), Redstorm OÜ (Estonia) and Överumans Fisk Ab (Sweden), led by Margus Rebane.
By providing increased phosphorus digestibility, reduced phosphorus discharge and increased fish production, Blue IMPACT™ Aqua supports aquaculture in leading the way by improving the efficiency of phosphorus consumption and protecting our planet’s resources.
