for marine species
Omega-3 and Omega-6 dietary guidelines to improve health, welfare, quality and performance of marine species
Optimum Omega Nutrition (OON) for marine fish provides practical guidelines to help farmers of European sea bass, gilthead sea bream, barramundi or yellowtail kingfish set feed specifications for meeting EPA & DHA Omega-3 and ARA Omega-6 requirements. Optimum dietary requirements of EPA & DHA Omega-3 vary greatly between the different species and life-stages of farmed marine fish.
Crucially, the OON guidelines reflect this, ensuring that fish health, welfare and performance is supported throughout the production cycle of each species.
By using Veramaris algal oil in conjunction with the Optimum Omega Nutrition guidelines, fish farmers not only stand to improve productivity, product quality, and yield but also lower their marine footprint.
- Dietary EPA + DHA requirements vary between the different species and life-stages of farmed marine fish
- The ratio of EPA : DHA is important to the health and welfare of marine species, in addition to the total amount of EPA + DHA in the diet
- The Omega-3 : Omega-6 ratio plays a crucial role in marine fish health, but the optimal ratio remains unresolved for European sea bass, gilthead sea bream and yellowtail kingfish
