Sea bream (Sparus aurata)

 

FINESTA – FINEST WITH COLOURS

Finesta intro GR_EN (content)

Today’s aquafeeds for farmed sea bream are designed to provide the fish with all the nutritional needs for maximum performance and sound growth. Yet, farmed sea bream may lack some of the attractive colours of its wild counterpart.

Based on commercial field trial results carried out in collaboration with fish farmers, BioMar has designed FINESTA – a finisher diet to intensify the skin colour of sea bream before harvest. By highligting the vibrant colours of the fish, FINESTA aims to bring extra value to the businesses of fish farmers.
