The Optimal Start

Intro - Trout/Tilapia/Catfish Starters WM-EM (item)

BioMar's fry feed INICIO Plus covers all the nutritional needs of farmed fish during the first life stages. INICIO Plus contains is based on superior quality raw materials, 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.

Our production process also emphasizes physical quality with well calibrated sizes as well as absence of dust. Good physical quality assists in maintaining a clean and healthy aquatic environment for the fry.

* 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.
