Active Nutrition for native fish species
Meticulous research and nutritional knowledge provide the basis for all the fish and shrimp feeds that we develop. Through the application of our Active Nutrition concept, each dietary component is present for a specific reason – to perform a particular action that contributes to the health, welfare or growth of the fish or shrimp at a time when it is most required.
Feeds are tailored to suit species, size, biology and environmental conditions, and also take farming conditions, market requirements and economic pressures into consideration.
Through Active Nutrition, our feeds fall into three clearly defined categories:
Feeds meet the needs of the fish under normal conditions, when the production conditions are optimal and the fish are healthy and strong, to achieve the highest growth potential. Feeds are specifically tailored for these times to promote ideal health and maximise growth by delivering the perfect balance of essential nutrients, while all the time ensuring the best economic solution.
Feeds are designed for use when a challenge to the fish is imminent, such as handling, exposure to infection, or leading into adverse environmental conditions. Feeds falling within the proactive nutrition category are designed to help strengthen fish immunity and stress resistance, thus priming the fish's defence systems to cope during these testing times or assist with recovery following them.
Feeds address the requirements of fish when they are most challenged, including periods of chronic environmental circumstances outside of the fishes optima, or disease outbreaks. Specific nutrition feeds are formulated to help fish manage and survive these circumstances through provision of specialist health promoting additives and adjusted nutrient profiles.
