Performance Trace Minerals for Aquaculture

Research-Proven Products Mean Better Aquaculture Nutrition

The world’s appetite for farm-raised fish and shrimp has never been higher. Producers around the world, including those who are salmon farming, rainbow trout farming, tilapia fish farming and shrimp farming, are working to increase production to meet a growing demand. Along with increased production comes a deeper understanding of the unique nutritional needs of farm-raised aquatic species.

Research shows that optimal trace mineral nutrition is one path to improve production. Fish, shrimp and other aquatic species require trace minerals such as zinc, manganese, copper, iron and selenium for basic metabolic functions, such as growth and development, immunity and reproduction. To be efficient, competitive and profitable, farms need to get product to market weight quickly – with good feed conversion, high uniformity, immunity and healthy skin or scales.
