What fish eat is of great importance for fish health. Feeds containing krill give many benefits and solve challenges faced in aquaculture. Feeds with krill have optimal fatty acid balance, which results in a strong immune system. A strong immune system is the basis for good health and reduced mortality.
Krill naturally live in all oceans world over. This might be why fish and shrimp love the taste of QRILL products and therefore eat more when feed contains inclusion of krill. What is this creature krill? What is the magic of this ingredient in aquafeed? Read more to find out.
Krill is a keystone species in the Antarctic Ocean. Aker BioMarine has always considered it vital to protect the krill biomass as well as the many species that ultimately depend on krill as a food source.
Fish like the taste of QRILL and eat more when feed contains krill. Therefore fish grow faster and reach their harvest weight earlier.
QRILL improves fillet quality. Filets are firmer, there is less gaping and for salmon there are less dark spots. For shrimp QRILL improves taste and visual appearance.
For salmonids, QRILL Aqua is proven to improve feed uptake and speed up growth. The fish becomes healthier and fillet quality is much better. There’s a reason the world’s most successful salmon farming companies raise their salmon on feed made with QRILL Aqua.
For shrimp, QRILL Aqua and Astaxanthin Oil is proven to increase feed uptake resulting in faster growing, healthier and tastier shrimp that look great. Whether your shrimp farming goal is to speed up growth, improve health and enhance the final product’s taste — or maximize uptake during the starter feed stage — there is a tested QRILL product.
