In Aker BioMarine, we strive to make our ingredients the finest quality available - providing products for our partners that we can be proud of. We are openly sharing our knowledge and experience to partners to help secure their success with QRILL. Following are some facts about QRILL Aqua.   


What is QRILL Aqua?

QRILL Aqua is prepared from an extract of ground whole Antarctic krill that is cooked and dried, resulting in a brownish-orange powder containing around 60 percent protein with a nutritionally well-balanced amino acid profile. It is a sustainable source of protein, omega-3 phospholipids, feed attractants and astaxanthin. The benefits of including this ingredient in fish feeds are many: 


  • Increased appetite
  • Enhanced growth
  • Stronger immune system
  • Increased survival rates
  • Better filet quality

Fresh and natural

QRILL Aqua products are all made from fresh krill and the crew harvest as long as the Antarctic seasons and CCMLAR regulatory allows. The fresh krill have different fat and protein content throughout the year. This is a result of their diet. Early in the season – after feeding on algae, the krill are often low in fat but high in protein. Midseason, fat content is higher due feeding on plankton. Being that QRILL Aqua products are all natural they vary in nutrition values depending on the season of harvest.
