QRILL Aqua IS PROVEN TO PROVIDE:
- Higher feed uptake and enhanced growth
- Increased stress tolerance
- Boosted survival rates
- Reduced costs
- Better visual appearance
Sustainable and effective ingredients are key in aquaculture today. Challenges are that feed raw materials can fluctuate in price, quality and availability. But adding QRILL Aqua to the diet, provides opportunities to feed producers as they reduce or exclude some of these ingredients.
Essential feeding and health benefits
Shrimp health and growth is closely related to the diet. Shrimp have no capacity to make long-chain omega-3s and phospholipids, meaning that they need to be included in the feed. QRILL Aqua, which contains omega-3s in phospholipid form, improves omega-3 content in shrimp, which promotes normal development, resistance and survival.
"QRILL Aqua acts by stimulating feed intake which accelerates growth and improves feed efficiency in marine shrimp. The beauty is that it works well under low inclusions, and because of its unique composition nutritionists can take advantage by sparing some costly ingredients."

A powerful performance supplement
Astaxanthin krill oil is a healthy and sustainable dietary supplement, appealing to shrimp farmers who seek a healthy stock and rapid animal growth. It can be used during feed manufacturing or by farmers as top coating for dry or fresh feed.
Increases stress tolerance
Improves color and flavor
Black Tiger Shrimp: Shrimp prefer krill and crustacean meal over alternative feed ingredients.
Black Tiger Shrimp: Shrimp grow faster with Antarctic krill added to their diet.
Pacific White Shrimp: Diets featuring krill increase the amount of food pellets shrimp eat.
Pacific White Shrimp: Krill added to plant-based diets increases yield.
Pacific White Shrimp: QRILL improves shrimp weight while reducing formula cost.
Pacific White Shrimp: Antarctic krill can effectively replace traditional sources of fishmeal, fish oil, phospholipids, and cholesterol without diminishing performance.
