BioMar's INICIO Plus and INICIO feed ranges cover all the nutritional needs of farmed fish during the first life stages. Our ranges are based on superior quality raw materials, contain high protein levels, balanced amino-acid, and fatty acid profiles, vitamins and micronutrients.

Due to its specially developed composition, INICIO Plus consistently out-performs in feed trials with excellent feed conversion, growth, and low mortality results. By improving the performance of the fish, BioMar's starter feed contributes to increased production profitability.

INICIO Plus contains Bactocell®*, a well-documented probiotic that reduces deformities and mortality across fish species. In addition, our studies as well as many independent scientific publications,show that the use of probiotics in the feed also enhances the general health status of the fish and increases digestibility of the feed.

Furthermore, a unique production process ensures an optimal sinking speed, well adapted to the eating behaviour of the fry. The result is an optimal growth rate and good feed conversion.

* Bactocell® is the only probiotic approved by the European Comission for inclusion in fish feed. The approval is based on extensive documentation of reduced occurrence of deformities across fish species.
