Eel are predominantly farmed in cost intensive recirculated systems. It is crucial to maximize production per m2 of this valuable species to achieve the lowest fixed production cost per kg, and thus maximize economic performance.
BioMar eel feeds deliver high growth rates and low feed conversion rates, helping the farmer reach the highest production and the best financial result.
Nutritional requirements vary through the life cycle of eel.
BioMar's feed ranges cover the special needs in the full life cycle from glasseel to harvest.
The smallest Dan-Ex glasseel feeds help in the transfer from live feeds to formulated diets and provide a good start through the challenging first weeks. Increasing feed sizes follow the changing nutritional needs of the eel until their maximum size.
Specialised feeds for farming in Recirculation Aquaculture Systems.
Farming in recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) focuses on maximizing farming conditions, reducing emissions of nutrients to the aquatic environment, reducing water consumption and providing farming with a high level of bio-security.
BioMar eel feeds are specially formulated for Recirculation Aquaculture Systems (RAS) farms, delivering maximum feed performance and maximising the return on invested capital for the farmer.
Feed for aquaculture is a concentrated package of nutrients and energy designed to provide rapid, healthy and cost-effective growth, and prime quality end products.
Through the BioMar Retention Technology (BRT) project we have learned that process conditions in the feed production itself have a very strong impact on the feed's structure and physical properties.
BRT focuses specifically on nutrition related to process technology. The knowledge package BRT will ensure taking the maximum performance potential out of any feed formula.
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.
