With the groundbreaking P 3.0 Concept for feed formulation, BioMar advances its efforts to bring more value to the businesses of fish farmers.
Within the last two decades, BioMar has pioneered feed formulation with its game-changing concepts, BioRhythmic Feeding and Performance Concept. These concepts resulted in important breakthroughs for the aquaculture industry, such as reducing the dependence on individual raw materials, providing best possible total economic performance for the farmers, more sustainable use of scarce marine resources, without compromising the constant high quality of the feed.
Adapting market situations, targeting final fish products
Feeds formulated with the P 3.0 Concept provide the farmers with the ability to better adapt their business objectives to changing market situations, be it minimising the production costs in a market situation where fish prices are below expectations or maximising biomass in a market where fish prices go beyond expectations. Furthermore, as the research behind the development can document the effect
of the diet in the filleted and gutted yield as well as the quality, the P 3.0 Concept makes it possible to optimise the diets taking the final fish products (such as round, filleted or gutted) into consideration.
P 3.0 Concept is an advanced version of BioMar’s Performance Concept. “The launch of Performance Concept in the late 90’s was a game-changer in the aquafeed market. It enabled us to maximise the feed performance with decreased dependency on changes in the raw materials. With P 3.0 Concept, we are now introducing a new approach to modelling feed performance, providing our customers with more targeted feeds, so they can adapt to changing business conditions and maximise the economic potential of their fish,” explains Iannis Karacostas, Product Manager for Marine Species, BioMar EMEA.
“To ensure correct market implementation, fish farmers can expect that the first diets launched under P 3.0 Concept will mainly focus on varying market situations, such as fluctuating fish prices. Diets optimised for different final fish products are planned to be introduced at a later stage,” Iannis Karacostas continues.
