The path to increased financial yield
CONSISTENT FEED PERFORMANCE
The prices of feed raw materials and of farmed species fluctuate for many reasons. When both costs and income fluctuate, it is crucial that the farmer can choose products that provide the best financial end result – tailored to meet the circumstances.
By means of adapted feed composition, feed choice and feeding regime, we can offer a unique support system based on documentation beyond comparison: the Best Economic Performance model. The customer defines the performance goals and BioMar adapts the product strategy to fit these demands
BioMar's feed ranges cover the special needs in the full life cycle from egg to harvest of both fresh water and marine fish species, and of shrimp.
Starting with the LARVIVA diets for hatcheries and a number of specific types of fry feeds we offer a large variety of transfer feeds and grower feeds developed to match the nutritional needs of specific species in various farming conditions.
On top, we offer specially enriched broodstock feeds, conditioning the brood stock to deliver highest quality eggs and by this securing the best possible start for a new cycle.
Our BioRhythmic feeding concept helps to achieve the best possible production results when growth rate, feed conversion rate and survival are very important parts of the picture.
For optimised performance, the daily energy intake must be maximised throughout the production cycle. It matters to choose a feed that maintains the appetite at a high level, irrespective of environmental changes like temperature and light conditions.
Furthermore, it is essential to choose a diet with an energy level that is closely adapted to the growth potential in the various stages of production. It is equally important to apply an optimal feeding regime ensuring the amount of feed needed from day to day to reach production targets is available.
We care about the health of fish, fish farmer’s finances and the healthy reputation that farmed fish deserve and on which the industry relies.
BioMar aims to offer a range of functional diets effective against the most serious production disorders, and covering the entire production cycle for a large number of farmed species.
Our research on one species is very often relevant for another. This is especially applicable in terms of fish health, where functional diets tend to have a broader spectrum of use with respect to species than grower feeds do.
Farming in recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) gives an opportunity for maximising farming conditions, reducing emissions of nutrients to the aquatic environment, reducing water consumption and for farming with a high level of bio-security.
BioMar was the first to develop a specialised feed for RAS farms: ORBIT.
ORBIT delivers maximum feed performance, maximises the return on invested capital for the farmer, and it improves the environmental balance by reducing emissions to the aquatic environment and by focusing on a sustainable use of raw materials.
ORBIT feeds are available for farming of trout and salmon. We continue developing this feed concept to cover more species.
Healthy growth for small fish
EFICO Vital 909 is a functional feed that defends gut health and strengthens inner and outer barriers of the fish to improve performance during challenging periods.Read more
BioMar offers special feed range for RAS farming of yellowtail kingfish. The feed must apply to the special requirements of salt-water RAS farming, enabling for good water quality and thus good conditions for the fish and the living organisms living in the biofilter. At the same time, the feed must deliver a top performance to the fish, securing good and sound growth.Read more
BioMar has completed the testing of insect meal in feeds for aquaculture and believe it shows promise as an alternative protein source. This is one among many other novel ingredients like algae oil or single cell proteins that BioMar has been investigating. BioMar believes these raw materials can address some of the needs of the market and are now eager to speed up their adoption through the creation of innovative feed solutions targeting the needs of seafood consumers.Read more
Optimal health and performance at minimal environmental impact are of key importance for BioMar. BioMar EMEA has updated the source of mineral additives in all our feeds.Read more

BioMar has increased its research capabilities in hatchery with an expansion of its Aquaculture Technology Centre, ATC Hirtshals facility in Denmark. BioMar has now opened a state-of-the-art marine fish larval trial unit that not only allows for larval rearing but also the production of live feed.Read more
Exploiting the growth potential of the farmed species used to be a bottleneck for profitable aquaculture activity. Today, our feeds are optimised to potentially deliver a feed performance that fully can exploit this potential.
BioMar’s technical support systems and our BioFarm team provide guidance for appropriate nutrition and feeding strategies. BioFarm assists in regard to general health issues, disease prevention and recovery strategies and pays special attention to the challenges in production of larvae, fry, fingerlings, and smolt. BioFarm team members are specialised in farming technology, recirculation systems, water quality, and energy efficiency as well as sustainability, eco-efficiency analysis, life cycle analysis, and environmental impact assessment.
We always strive to live up to our reputation for delivering efficient logistics services and to deliver the right feed to the right place on time.
While doing so, we focus on minimising our environmental footprint. The world's first cargo ship powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG) has been operated by BioMar since 2012 is only one example showing our ambition on reducing our environmental impact.
