Aim for Higher Performance,
Health and Product Quality
As the world’s appetite for farm-raised fish and shrimp has increased, so has the need for trace mineral supplementation. Maximizing the profitability and sustainability of your aquaculture operation starts with improving the overall health and wellbeing of your animals. Zinpro® Performance Minerals® and solutions are proven to help you meet growing demand by improving key criteria such as survival rates, feed efficiency, gut health, disease resistance, fertility, product quality and more.
Healthier Animals. Healthier Business. Healthier World.
We are at the forefront of innovations that address the industry’s primary concerns. By developing solutions that allow for more effective nutrient absorption and delivery, we are driving more efficient production and feeding to meet the world’s growing nutritional needs sustainably — while providing animal welfare benefits that decrease medical costs, support faster growth rates and increase the quality of meat.
Ensuring the cost efficiency of growth is central to improving producer’s return on investment. Research has shown that fish, shrimp and other aquatic species require trace minerals such as zinc, manganese, copper, iron, selenium and chromium for basic metabolic functions, such as growth and development, immunity and reproduction.
To be efficient, competitive and profitable, farms need to get their product to market weight quickly – with good feed conversion, high uniformity, high carcass and/or fillet yield with good coloration and shiny skin and/or scales. Supplementation with Zinpro Performance Minerals throughout the production cycle has been proven to advance all those areas, adding up to better profitability.
Health and Wellbeing
The performance and productivity of fish, shrimp and other aquatic species is directly related to their overall health and wellbeing. The trace minerals found in Zinpro® solutions — such as zinc, manganese, copper, iron and selenium — are essential for numerous basic metabolic functions, such as growth and development, immunity and reproduction. These minerals also are critical components or activators of many enzymes, vitamins, hormones and respiratory pigments. Without them, the development of a healthy skeleton, nervous system, immune system, teeth, muscles and soft tissue can be impaired.
It’s for all these reasons that supplementation with Zinpro Performance Minerals has been proven to reduce mortality rates and lead to healthier aquaculture throughout the entire production cycle.
Food Quality and Safety
With Zinpro Performance Minerals and solutions, animals benefit from faster growth and greater overall health and disease resistance. This not only takes pressure off of antibiotics to prevent food safety issues, but it also increases the total amount of carcass yield and improves the quality of the meat itself — with significant improvements to both color and appearance, as well as nutritional value. All resulting in a product that’s safer, healthier and more appealing to consumers.
Environment and Sustainability
Zinpro is committed to forwarding products and solutions that advance the sustainability of the industry. We work with customers to foster the development of environmentally friendly diets including Low/Free-FM diets and RAS diets — along with diets that reduce nutrient excretion and utilize Meet Legislation Feed Additives™.
