Grower Feeds

Turbot (Scophtalmus maximus)

Focus on feed performance

BioMar grower feeds of different digestible energy levels are available to farmers to provide flexibility in production and financial objectives. Determining which digestible energy level is optimal for a given farmer will depend on the farming intensity as well as the production setup and scope. Increasing digestible energy (DE) in the feed improves the feed conversion rate (FCR) under the condition that the feed includes the corresponding digestible protein (DP) and the optimal essential amino acid levels needed for growth. Farmers using feeds with higher digestible energy and can potentially use less feed for a given biomass produced. To achieve this goal, a fine tuning of the feed management is also required.

High digestible energy grower feed

EFICO Sigma 870

EFICO Sigma 870 – The sinking grower feed specially developed for turbot

  • High energy sinking feed with high digestible protein/digestible energy ratio (DP/DE) matching specific nutritional requirements of turbot.

  • Formulated with the best raw materials available, provides high performance and excellent palatability.

  • Includes the necessary levels of micronutrients, vitamins, essential fatty acids and amino acids, and other essential micro-ingredients needed for optimal condition and growth of turbot.

  • BioMar’s extrusion process produces high quality pellets nearly free of dust, which promotes water quality. Additionally, the pellets are durable, yet soft enough for turbot to uptake the most nutrients.
