Skretting’s commitment to research and innovation delivers smoltification success

Salmon smoltSmoltification is one of the most critical life phases for Atlantic salmon. We have a complete feed line to ensure a complete and successful transfer.

A fast start gives the fish an advantage that only increases. We have developed the transfer concept Nutra Supreme - Spirit Supreme . Fed 6 weeks before and after transfer to sea water the transfer concept contributes to faster increased appetite for the smolt, so that the critical period with low appetite and poor growth can be minimized. With Supreme feeds, the fish is supported through the smoltification process. 

Research that measured one intercellular physiological marker before and after transfer to sea,  has shown that fish get a higher up regulation of this marker before transfer and a faster down regulation after transfer when given the Supreme diets.
