Molofeed has developed larval feed for marine finfish and shrimp based on proprietary micro-encapsulation technology.
This makes it possible to include pre-digested and other water soluble components in a capsule, and slow release nutrients after feeding.
The technology has several additional potential applications, including acting as a delivery system for bioactive peptides, immunostimulants, and probiotics.
Because of their size and digestive capabilities, young fish require highly specific feeds — commonly sourced from live prey, such as artemia and rotifers, which are costly, carry disease-risk, and have a significant environmental footprint.
Molofeed is able to substitute more live feed than current products, with a vision of one day replacing live feeds altogether.
