A game changer for marine nurseries
Improved water quality is just the tip of the iceberg
Game changer for marine nurseries
LARVIVA ORBIT is the innovative feed concept specially designed for marine nurseries operating on RAS. LARVIVA ORBIT is the solution for maximizing efficiency, performance and profitability of marine nurseries by providing increased advantages and minimizing challenges in production.
Balanced nutrition formulation
Exceptional physical pellet quality
High impact on faeces stability & reduction of fine solids
An optimum supplementary package containing functional ingredients
Raw Material Selection
Careful selection of raw materials is crucial as they will have a direct impact on physical pellet quality, dust levels and water stability. All these criteria are fundamental to control for the optimal condition of the fish and for their impact on the water treatment systems.
BioMar's state of the art raw material evaluation methodology, allows us to select, grade and score any raw material used for RAS feeds in terms of its impact on faecal stability. All ORBIT feed formulas are optimised using this methodology, in order to select the optimal raw material composition to ensure maximum faecal stability, providing the lowest possible impact on the RAS unit, without affecting performance.
In recirculating aquaculture systems, the digestibility of proteins and lipids play an important role in ensuring maximum performance of the fish and the system. When energy comes from the breakdown of protein, the result is unutilised nitrogen, which is released as ammonia through the gills and urine. LARVIVA ORBIT enables the proteins to be used for growth, instead of just being catabolised.
Reduction of small particles
LARVIVA ORBIT is a game changer feed concept that helps optimise solid waste management in RAS. Large scale trials in commercial conditions have shown a consistent reduction of the percentage of finer suspended particles, thus increasing the efficiency of mechanical filters.
Benefits of LARVIVA ORBIT
The benefits of an efficient solid waste management in RAS go beyond improved water quality
A well-documented solution
Trial results have shown that LARVIVA ORBIT matches or exceeds productive performance of other commercially available diets.
