Finishing diet for seabream and seabass

The finishing feeds produced for this project aimed at a total concept including nutritional effects on visual appearance (external colour through natural pigment sources), slaughter quality (reduction in visceral fat deposits through appropriate dietary fat level and composition), shelf life (through antioxidant nutrients like vitamin E and C), cooking quality, sensorial and nutritional qualities (through choice of raw materials and appropriate formulation.
All the feeds produced have behaved well concerning stability and skinking properties in marine water. The analyses have followed the formulation specifications.

Farms have use the finishing feeds for the last period of the grow-out phase and the results have shown to be more variable than in the laboratory, but even then, the colour and general welfare improvement of the fish in the ponds yielded good marketing results.
