Otter Ferry Seafish trials sustainable feed additive

August 24, 2023  By Jean Ko Din

An independent trial conducted at Otter Ferry Seafish in Scotland, showed that the inclusion of Orego-Stim Forte, a natural and sustainable feed additive, to the commercial diets of juvenile ballan wrasse resulted in improved growth performance, survivability, lower feed conversion and higher specific growth rates.

Orego-Stim Forte is a high-quality functional feed ingredient, manufactured by Anpario and specifically developed for aquaculture, containing 100 per cent natural oregano essential oils and quillaja saponins. 

“Ballan wrasse are increasingly utilized in salmon farming for sustainable sea lice management. By improving the performance and survivability of ballan wrasse using Orego-Stim Forte we’re able to drive productivity, fish welfare and ultimately reduce the overall environmental footprint,” said Lawrence Brown, senior technical & account manager at Anpario. “We’re excited to be working with cleaner fish producers and aquafeed manufacturers to harness the benefits of our functional feed ingredients.”

This research was part-funded by UK Agritech Centre CIEL as a “successful recipient of aquaculture project seed funding.”
