Fish - an efficient source of protein

Aquaculture is one of the least resource-intensive forms of food production. Fish do not burn energy fighting gravity, and because they are cold-blooded, they do not burn energy adjusting their body temperature. This makes fish very energy efficient.

Less is more

Fish farmers can obtain better results by using less feed. BioMar’s high performance fish feeds optimise feed performance, which enables farmers to use less feed without compromising on the nutritional needs of the fish and farming objectives. This is not only good for fish farmers and the aquaculture industry, it is also good for the environment.

Fish is good for you

Current research indicates that fish consumption reduces cardiovascular diseases and enhances brain development of infants and young children when consumed by the mother before or during pregnancy. Fish is an excellent source of EPA and DHA omega 3 fatty acids. Furthermore, fish consumption contributes to the intake of essential nutrients such as iodine, selenium calcium and vitamin D.

Accelerating performance of marine RAS nurseries

RAS expands towards marine nurseries and this asks for special attention on specific properties of the feed, such as faeces stability. BioMar presents LARVIVA ORBIT, its new aquafeed specially developed for marine RAS nurseries. LARVIVA ORBIT is planned to be available on the market in the first quarter of 2020. From spring 2020, sea bass and sea bream hatcheries will have access to ORBIT feeds specifically designed for prolonging the growth of fry in land-based facilities before transfer to sea cages.
