Defending gut health

EFICO Vital 909 is a functional feed that defends gut health and strengthens inner and outer barriers of the fish to improve performance during challenging periods.

In trout farming, certain environmental and production conditions such as warm temperatures but also high feed input and stressful events can be accompanied by the growth of undesirable bacteria in the gut, making the fish vulnerable to them. BioMar introduces EFICO Vital 909, a functional feed that strengthens inner and outer barriers of the fish to improve performance during these challenging periods.

- A healthy gut relies among other things on a balanced microflora where “good” bacteria colonize the gut and outperform undesirable bacteria, which can cause health issues, explains Christina Frisk, Product Manager for the fresh water segment in BioMar EMEA.

According to Christina Frisk, the occurrence of undesirable bacteria can increase during hot summers or other stressful periods and cause a misbalance in the gut microflora.

- The special formulation that we have developed for EFICO Vital 909 includes a selection of active ingredients to activate the first line of the immune defense of the fish. By this, the focus is given on keeping good gut health, says Christina Frisk.

- We hope that trout farmers will warmly welcome EFICO Vital 909 and experience its value in their farms, concludes Christina Frisk.
