Leveraging combined industry expertise of both Skretting and I&V Bio, the collaboration aims to redefine the standards of aquaculture nutrition through the application of ORI-N3, Skretting’s own proprietary nutritional supplement in artemia enrichment.

Artemia, often referred to as brine shrimp, serve as an important component in the early stages of various aquatic species’ life cycles. The two companies claim that ensuring the optimal nutrition of artemia is essential for the healthy growth and development of shrimp in aquaculture systems. Skretting and I&V Bio as a result of this have decided to join together in an effort to enhance the nutritional value of artemia using Skretting’s ORI-N3 formulation.

ORI-N3 has been claimed by Skretting to be a nutritional supplement with a unique enrichment profile of essential proteins, lipids, and micronutrients. They state that the formula is specifically designed to boost the nutritional content of artemia, in order to provide a balanced and comprehensive diet for early-stage aquatic species. Doing so, they also state that ORI-N3 ensures optimal growth rates, improved resistance to diseases, and enhances overall health for shrimp.

It is the hope for both companies that this partnership will be a significant step toward sustainable aquaculture practices. By enhancing the nutritional quality of artemia through ORI-N3, they have stated that they aim to contribute to the overall well-being of aquatic species and, the sustainability of aquaculture.
