Live feed supplement launched

Shrimp Feed ingredients Marine fish +4 more

A new product to help enrich rotifers and Artemia that are used as live feeds in fish and shrimp hatcheries has been launched today.

Called Easy Dry Selco (EDS) the supplement has been developed by INVE Aquaculture, part of Benchmark’sadvanced nutrition division. INVE specialises in early-stage nutrition to increase survivability and performance of marine fish and shrimp. The company offers a range of liquid and dry enrichment products that support the development of healthy and performing fry by optimising the nutritional value of live feeds.

The supplement adds fats, proteins, vitamins, key minerals, immuno-stimulants, essential amino acids and flavonoids to Artemia and rotifers

EDS is a dry enrichment with a formulation that boosts rotifers and Artemia with balanced levels of fats, proteins, vitamins, key minerals, immuno-stimulants, essential amino acids and flavonoids, turning live-feed into a very functional enrichment. Because it adds a lot more than just lipids content to the live feed, the protein-rich formula of EDS is specifically suitable for fast growing marine fish larvae and completes the nutritional balance of the early-stage fish feed, optimising fry quality and robustness.

“Simple and reliable as it is, EDS provides the most advanced, complete and cost-effective enrichment for rotifer and Artemia production,” reflects Alessandro Moretti, INVE’s hatchery product manager.

EDS can be used in the traditional way, after harvesting, or added directly into the live feed culture tank. Rotifer enrichment takes 6-9 hours to complete, while for Artemia, INVE recommends harvesting 18-22 hours after the start of the enrichment.
