The path to increased financial yield
P 3.0 Concept
NEXT GENERATION OF AQUAFEEDS
The prices of feed raw materials and of farmed species fluctuate for many reasons. When both costs and income fluctuate, it is crucial that the farmer can choose products that provide the best financial end result – tailored to meet the circumstances.
By means of adapted feed composition, feed choice and feeding regime, we can offer a unique support system based on documentation beyond comparison: the Best Economic Performance model. The customer defines the performance goals and BioMar adapts the product strategy to fit these demands
BioMar's feed ranges cover the special needs in the full life cycle from egg to harvest of both fresh water and marine fish species, and of shrimp.
Starting with the LARVIVA diets for hatcheries and a number of specific types of fry feeds we offer a large variety of transfer feeds and grower feeds developed to match the nutritional needs of specific species in various farming conditions.
On top, we offer specially enriched broodstock feeds, conditioning the brood stock to deliver highest quality eggs and by this securing the best possible start for a new cycle.
Our BioRhythmic feeding concept helps to achieve the best possible production results when growth rate, feed conversion rate and survival are very important parts of the picture.
For optimised performance, the daily energy intake must be maximised throughout the production cycle. It matters to choose a feed that maintains the appetite at a high level, irrespective of environmental changes like temperature and light conditions.
Furthermore, it is essential to choose a diet with an energy level that is closely adapted to the growth potential in the various stages of production. It is equally important to apply an optimal feeding regime ensuring the amount of feed needed from day to day to reach production targets is available.
We care about the health of fish, fish farmer’s finances and the healthy reputation that farmed fish deserve and on which the industry relies.
BioMar aims to offer a range of functional diets effective against the most serious production disorders, and covering the entire production cycle for a large number of farmed species.
Our research on one species is very often relevant for another. This is especially applicable in terms of fish health, where functional diets tend to have a broader spectrum of use with respect to species than grower feeds do.
Farming in recirculation aquaculture systems (RAS) gives an opportunity for maximising farming conditions, reducing emissions of nutrients to the aquatic environment, reducing water consumption and for farming with a high level of bio-security.
BioMar was the first to develop a specialised feed for RAS farms: ORBIT.
ORBIT delivers maximum feed performance, maximises the return on invested capital for the farmer, and it improves the environmental balance by reducing emissions to the aquatic environment and by focusing on a sustainable use of raw materials.
ORBIT feeds are available for farming of trout and salmon. We continue developing this feed concept to cover more species.
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 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.
Knowledge of several critical environmental impact areas of aquafeeds is essential in helping make sustainable decisions. That is why some BioMar feeds in our Europe, Middle East & Africa (EMEA) Divisions will now include new sustainability indicators on technical product datasheets. This knowledge will help farmers in their pursuit to reduce negative environmental impacts.Read more
