In aquaculture diets, QRILL acts as a feeding stimulant that increases feed uptake and enhances growth in marine fish species. QRILL feed applications have been proven to strengthen the health and improve survival rates at the larval and juvenile stage. Furthermore, the digestive system is functioning better and the utilization of lipids are higher, reducing incidence of intestinal absorptive cells injuries
The addition of dietary QRILL leads to a lower lipid deposition in marine fish larvae and juveniles liver cells, suggesting an enhanced mobilization of liver lipids. Inclusion of krill meal in diets for larvae and juveniles, has been claimed to improve dietary lipid utilization. Moreover, krill phospholipids are found to increase the transport of liver lipids by increasing the synthesis of lipoproteins. Dietary krill phospholipids protect marine fish from fatty intestine and intestinal cell injuries, and therefore improving fish health.
We are always working with our feed partners, their fish farmers, and independent research groups to document the beneficial effects of our Antarctic krill products. Several studies have been completed that highlight the advantages of including QRILL Aqua in marine fish diets.
