Higher slaughter yields for farmed salmon
The grower feed Premium is based on metabolic activators that improve the salmon’s utilization of digestible energy. The result is faster growth, higher slaughter yields and more marketable salmon.
The beneficial effects of Premium have been documented in multiple Atlantic salmon feeding trials. Results show that Premium gives a 1 % higher slaughter and fillet yield compared to standard diets. There is more fat distributed in the muscles and less visceral fat. The improved utilisation of feed is positive for both the bottom line and the environment.
What are metabolic activators?
Premium is made based on a breakthrough discovery at the Skretting Aquaculture Research Centre (ARC): our scientists have discovered micro-ingredients that increase the fish’s utilization of digestible energy. The metabolic activators are natural substances present in specific raw materials. When combined correctly, these substances positively impact the fish’s physiology. More fat is being stored in the edible parts of the fish rather than being lost in the gutted parts of the fish during slaughter.
Increased levels of Omega 3
The content of marine Omega 3 fatty acids, EPA and DHA, in the salmon fillet increased by 3 to 6 % in fish fed Premium. The worldwide supply of marine Omega 3 fatty acids is very limited and effective resource utilization is therefore increasingly important.
Increase the utilization of digestible energy
