Vitalis for Atlantic Salmon


  • Healthier broodstock
  • Improved fecundity
  • High egg quality and survival

Broodstock nutrition has a profound influence on the quantity, quality and performance of the offspring. Vitalis provides the ultimate package, containing the complete balance of essential nutrients to ensure optimal sperm and egg development while providing sufficient energy to aid transition from endogenous to exogenous feeding in the larvae.

Optimal broodfish nutrition aims to maximise the number and quality of offspring. The& nutritional requirements of broodfish not only prescribe their ability to spawn but also& determine the quality of the eggs and yolksac fry. Good quality eggs and larvae are defined as those with the highest survival and performance characteristics.

The importance of nutrition

The ability to succeed in reproduction is influenced by a number of factors. While genetic background, farming environmental conditions and health status all have a role to play, nutrition has been proven to have a significant influence on:

  • The reproductive physiology of brood fish and their ability to spawn and produce good quality gametes
  • Quantity of eggs (fecundity)
  • Quality of eggs
  • Quality of yolk-sac fry
  • Initial performance of the larvae and fry before they become established onto feed

Feeding recommendations

Specific brood fish diets should be fed early enough in the reproductive cycle and throughout the period of vitellogenesis and oocyte maturation to ensure maximum survival and performance; approximately 9 -12 months before spawning.
