Aller Aqua upgrades fry feed
December 11, 2020 By Hatchery International staff
Aller Aqua’s latest product development promises to improve performance for its fry feed products.
According to a recent press release, the company has found a new way of adding polyunsaturated fatty acids, or PUFA, as phospholipids to fry feed. Phospholipids, derived from krill oil or purified fish oil, are essential for maintaining membrane homeostasis, gene expression, hormone synthesis, neurological development, and inflammatory response. PUFAs presented as phospholipids are digested and metabolised more efficiently than PUFAs in other lipid classes.
Extensive studies with trout fry at Aller Aqua Research and at a test farm showed improved growth when fish were fed Aller Infa EX GR and Aller Future EX GR, exceeding that of fish fed with competing brands, the company said. Fish fed with Aller Aqua fry feeds were also found to be more uniformly-sized, showed no deformities and had lowered mortality – down to one per cent in trout fry up to three grams.
“We consider this another milestone in the evolution of fry feeds at Aller Aqua in the recent years, focusing on the needs of the fish and benefits for the farmer,” the company said in the press release. “The upgrade applies to all of Aller Aqua’s fry feeds helping all of our fry feed customers to improve performance.”
