Freeze Dried Copepods

Copepods are acknowledged to be one Nature's best foods for fish fry and larvae because of their nutrient value (57% Protein) and high digestibility. Copepods in its various forms are used extensively in commercial aquaculture in Japan, Korea and Europe. In terms of HUFA content and fatty acid composition, they can be superior to artemia. Brine Shrimp Direct has secured a high-quality cultured product that is harvested from semi-intensive coastal ponds. Immediately after collection, they are quickly screened, rinsed, processed for freeze-drying in order to retain natural food value. Applicable to both marine and freshwater aquaria, the brackish water copepod, Apocyclops royi, has only recently been harvested in commercial quantities for use in the aquaria industry and is avidly sought by ornamental fish breeders worldwide. Feeding and handling are simple. Culture costs are lowered and survival of fish larvae, especially when fed copepods in conjunction with live or frozen artemia, is increased. Proximate Analysis: Protein, 57%; Fat, 7%; Ash, 12%; Fiber, 4.9%; Moisture, 7.6%. Bulk density: 0.11gm/cu. cm.
