Studies show great effects on health & fillet quality

QRILL Aqua is rich in protein, omega-3 phospholipids, and astaxanthin. Fish feed applications featuring QRILL Aqua promote healthier, more robust farmed fish — and improve aquaculture efficiency.


"We are pooling our scientific and pratical understanding of fish species and marine ingredients in order to develop feed products that address key aquaculture challenges."

The omega-3 fatty acids in our Antarctic krill meal are mainly bound to phospholipids. Phospolipids are the building blocks of all cell membranes, and thus their molecular structure promotes the delivery of omega-3 fatty acids to tissues.

In aquaculture diets, QRILL acts as a feeding stimulant that increases feed uptake and enhances growth. QRILL feed applications are proven to strengthen the robustness and health of fish, their tolerance to stress, and improve the pigmentation, firmness, thickness, and overall quality of fillets.

We are working steadily with our feed partners, their fish farmers, and independent research groups to document the beneficial effects of our Antarctic krill feed products. A number of studies highlighting the advantages of including QRILL Aqua in salmon diets have been completed. Please find links to studies in the right column or download our study summary booklet.
