Arctic Copepod Powder

Calanoid copepods have adapted to the harsh environment of shallow Arctic ponds and 24-hour solar exposure through the assimilation of photoprotective pigments.  These populations of nutrient-rich copepods are collected in managed harvests to ensure sustainability and are used by ornamental fish-keepers and reef enthusiasts because of their incredibly high levels of carotenoids (astaxanthin, cryptoxanthin, echinenone).  Our product is dried using low-temperatures to preserve these valuable anti-oxidants and color enhancing properties.  Feed directly or as an additive.  Add a veritable blast of natural carotene to your DIY diets or feed directly!

Proximate Analysis:  Protein, 65%; Fat, 9%; Ash, 12%; Chitin, 3%; Salt (NaCl), 9.5%; Astaxanthin, 400 ppm.
