Aquaculture industry

Using copepods as feed to the fish larvae and during other demanding phases increases the survival rate and improves the quality of the fish. Combined with higher growth rates and improved quality of the end product, using copepods have an enormous impact for the users. For a juvenile producer the use of copepods may result in 30% increased production, and the production cycle from juveniles to harvestable fish can be reduced by minimum 10%. When using copepods there is no need for enrichment due to naturally high and correctly balanced nutrients. Copepods may be used through the entire start-feed period and may replace rotifers and Artemia entirely, used as an additive to increase the nutritional content or work as a «vitamin boost».


Aquarium industry

Our main end customer segments are the salt water aquarists and those who wish to breed fish on their own as a hobby. Species like mandarin fish, clownfish and seahorse are much easier to breed using copepods. Copepods are presently the best feed for fish fry, a fact many people in the aquarium business are unaware of. The rotifers used at present require much processing and tend to foul the water. We want to work with wholesalers in the aquarium industry that understand the value of live copepods, and who have or are able to establish efficient distribution channels for live copepods or copepod eggs.
