Zebrafish Food

Caviar is a truly unique product on the market. Caviar is Caviar_420x194composed of agglomerated micro-capsules. The agglomerated product is agglomerated in different sizes to match the different stage of the fish larval development. Each capsule is filled with small peptides and low MW soluble proteins, nucleotides, EFA based phospholipids, a balanced profile of chelated trace minerals, etc. Caviar is recently formulated with frozen krill mince (Euphausia superb) as its main ingredient. This Krill is fished in the pristine waters of the Antarctic sea. This key ingredient is giving to caviar a better palatability, increased performance and extremely low levels of contaminants such as heavy metals and dioxins.
