Aquaculture is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs and other aquatic organisms. It involves cultivating both freshwater and saltwater species under predefined controlled conditions. Aquaculture generally refers to fish farming, shrimp farming and the cultivation of ornamental fish.
Commercial farming of fish, crustaceans and molluscs are the most common form of aquaculture. It involves raising species commercially in tanks, ponds, or ocean enclosures, usually for the consumer food industry.
The technology for both farming and harvesting has advanced hugely over the last few years and has led to ever-increasing commercial worldwide demand.
Here at Spheratrix, we have vast experience in the commercial development and mass manufacture of artificial feeds. These feeds are generally introduced to either; replace live feeds, strengthen species densities, install new micro diets or increase body mass for the consumer food industry.
These types of feed in beadlet form allow us to design and manufacture very versatile final products. For example, we can design artificial feeds to either, float, sink, control breakdown times or to minimise environmental contamination.
The feed must be scaled accordingly based on species type and be engageable for a predefined period of time. It is crucial to consider specific species digestive systems in order to eliminate over-feeding and malnutrition.
Feeds, generally contain lipids, oils, starch, vitamins and minerals, which can be either rapidly or slowly leached dependent on the required rate of ingestion.
We can partner with you to develop and produce artificial feeds based on your individual requirements. We have collaborated with many industries leading worldwide entities and institutions over the years and have the required knowledge to know what is and what is not possible.
