HEALTH BENEFITS FOR HIGHER PROFIT IN SHRIMP PRODUCTION
Field results with RedMeal
Astaxanthin is a naturally occurring carotenoid pigment found in various organisms, including microalgae, yeast, salmon, trout, krill, shrimp, crayfish, and some types of seaweed. When consumed by animals or humans, Astaxanthin provides numerous health benefits with a sound scientific background.
Atacama Bio has been actively pursuing the re-introduction of Astaxanthin from microalgae to the aquaculture market. Currently dominated by its synthetic alternative, the only goal is to add color with its inclusion in the feed. Natural Astaxanthin from Haematococcus pluvialis can provide a significant health boost to aquatic animals, translating into higher productivity and profits.
RedMeal is a whole microalgae product that contains all the natural elements from the Haematococcus pluvialis natural biofactory, being an excellent source of energy, proteins, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins, nucleotides, minerals, Astaxanthin and other carotenoids. Animals become healthier with nature-made, safe food. RedMeal is a homogenized blend of cracked biomass from Haematococcus pluvialis microalgae, rich in Natural Astaxanthin 3S, 3’S enantiomer. This isomer and its supporting carotenoids (lutein, canthaxanthin, zeaxanthin, and beta-carotene) have always been present in the natural food chain. Astaxanthin is naturally esterified with healthy fatty acids, palmitic, oleic, linoleic, and linolenic, that enhance stability and provide extended shelf life. It also contains 10 Vitamins and 18 amino acids, nine essential.
Since its introduction, we have gathered a significant amount of industrial-scale field data, which we have resumed and published. Please look at Martin Guerin’s article from 2019 and our article just published in the Jan/Feb edition of the AQUA Culture Asia Pacific magazine.
