TAKING CARE OF THE YOUNG ONES

Inicio range 2020

BioMar’s INICIO Plus and INICIO ranges cover all nutritional needs of salmonids during the first life stages. Our ranges are based on superior quality raw materials and provide an optimal balance between energy and protein, balanced amino-acid and fatty acid profiles, vitamins and micronutrients. INICIO Plus and INCIO ranges target various farming objectives:

  • INICIO Plus is formulated both to provide the best nutrition during all fry stages, and to provide the best health condition of the fry. Additional support is provided through special ingredients such as Bactocell®, B-WYSETM, and several other gut modulating ingredients.

  • INICIO feeds cover the nutritional needs of medium and big fry to grow efficiently. INICIO is found in two versions that respectively include and exclude land animal proteins.

BioMar’s fry feed range for salmonids has been updated applying the latest R&D research on nutrition and health, to bring an assortment to the farmers that is tailored for complying with the different needs of fish farmers and markets.

INICIO Plus

THE BEST CHOICE FOR FRY PRODUCTION

  • Emphasis on nutritional stability with boosting vitamins and immune-modulating ingredients and a high digestibility to promote good health and growth of fry

  • Contains high levels of phospholipids necessary for cell membrane stability and fluidity

  • Contains Bactocell®*, a probiotic that contributes to creating a healthy gut microflora balance, improving gut integrity, activating specific immune response, and reducing deformities in fish

  • Includes B-WYSETM**, consisting of multi-strains yeast fractions that provide enhanced immune-modulating and binding activities toward undesirable bacteria, along with mucus boosting effects

  • In challenge trials, the updated INICIO Plus has shown to contribute to a better resilience against the bacterial disease rainbow trout fry syndrome (RTFS) & enteric redmouth disease (ERM)

* Bactocell® is the only probiotic approved by the European Commission for inclusion in fish feed. The approval is based on extensive documentation of reduced occurrence of deformities across fish species.
** B-WYSE™ (BioMar Whole Yeast Synergistic Extracts) is a functional yeast-based additive developed by BioMar’s partner Lallemand Animal Nutrition.
