Benefits compared to baitfish:

  • Improved and consistent nutrient profile
  • Better SGR in low temperature
  • Better FCR compared with baitfish
  • Easier and cleaner handling
  • Improved logistics
  • Improved traceability of raw materials
  • Increased food quality and safety

Tuna feed for the future

Now available in Japan, MaGro is a soft extruded feed for bluefin tuna created using patented production technology to ensure high palatability for the fish. MaGro is our soft extruded pellet, and unique in Skretting. The pellet can be squashed, without breaking. Due to this unique soft texture tuna easily accept the diet.

About MaGro

Reduced FCR

The high nutrient density in MaGro means that the feed conversion ratio (FCR) is about 1/3 what is achieved when feeding baitfish.

Efficient production

MaGro formuliaton is consistent, comprising fully-traceable ingredients. The nutritional profile of baitfish can fluctuate dramatically depending on the species used, when and where it was caught, and the storage system, and also needs to be frozen. MaGro's practical, easy-to-use format means that semi-automatic “canon” feeding systems can be used, supporting much more efficient, cost-effective production, reducing water pollution compared to traditional baitfish feeding.

Growth performance

Growth performance with MaGro is similar to the one achievable with baitfish during summer conditions, and higher during winter conditions. This makes MaGro a cost-effective way to feed your tuna.
