EFICO Vital – Prepare your trout for the summer

During the warm summer months, trout can become stressed by increased temperatures, resulting in poor performance and increased mortality. Alongside good farming practices, BioMar’s EFICO Vital helps improve the condition of trout by enhancing the gut environment and helping prevent poor growth during warm temperatures.
