Are farmed salmon getting the right nutrition?
Veramaris released new feeding guidelines for meeting EPA and DHA omega-3 and ARA omega-6 requirements, while maintaining the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio in salmon diets.
EPA and DHA omega-3 are known to play a critical role in ensuring fish health and welfare in aquaculture, ultimately contributing to improved productivity and profitability for farmers. But what levels are needed exactly? Depending on life stage and farming conditions, the requirements for optimum fish health vary.
To answer this key question, Veramaris developed Optimum Omega Nutrition™, new feeding guidelines which show how farmers can meet EPA and DHA omega-3 and ARA omega-6 requirements while maintaining the omega-3 to omega-6 ratio in salmon diets.
