February 9th to 12th, Aquaculture America, opens its doors to welcome all who wants to gain insights of aquaculture. This year the conference will be held in Waikiki on Oahu Island, where you can almost walk out of your session and onto the beach!
Read how krill can benefit aquaculture.
QRILL Aqua is made from whole Antarctic krill, which contains high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids in phospholipid form. High palatability and nutrient composition make krill a key ingredient to formulate a modern salmon diet. Not convinced?
Here are 10 reasons why krill meal should be an essential ingredient for your salmon feed.
Continued growth of shrimp farming and a change from low-intensity, small-scale to high-intensity, commercial farming has increased the need for sustainable protein and cost-effective sources in shrimp feeds. Krill is a sustainable and natural protein source. It is a functional ingredient with different nutrients highly beneficial for shrimp. In addition, shrimp like the taste of krill. This makes krill a very interesting ingredient. In this article we offer 7 specific reasons why you should include krill in your shrimp feed.
In Aker BioMarine we strive to make sure that our ingredients are of the finest quality available. We openly share our knowledge and experience with our partners to help ensure their success.
October 7th to 10th, Aquaculture Europe , opens its doors for 3 full days in Berlin. This year the conference will focus on “Our Future Growing from Water” a highly relevant topic with a world-population in constant growth. As a result, we continuously add pressure to our global food systems - leading farms to a ramp up production, in order to keep pace with the growing demand.
Adding an ingredient to feed formulations which contains omega-3s may seem like a simple recipe for success. But it really isn’t that easy, as not all omega-3s are equal. So, picking the right one is crucial and can offer a significant competitive advantage.
Operating in one of the worlds toughest conditions requires state of the art vessels and a highly dedicated crew. Surrounded by the Antarctic wilderness, breathtaking scenery and being several days away from civilization, the vessels and their crew need to withheld months at sea.
Krill meal is in itself a natural attractant, and as a chemostimulant helps increase the duration shrimp spend feeding, and by connection the amount eaten (Derby et al. 2016). Krill meal contains chitin from the exoskeleton, soluble compounds, such as trimethylamine oxide, as well as free amino acids and nucleotides. This combination, naturally found in Antarctic krill, Euphausia superba, is proven to help increase both feed attractability and palatability. To put it in simple terms, shrimp just likes the taste of krill. The result is enhanced shrimp growth and yield, meaning shrimp spend less time in the ponds and get to market faster.
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 tried and tested QRILL product.
