Pigmentation

Consumers increasingly select fish on the basis of optimal appearance – specifically color. Our products provide a consistent and reliable flesh pigmentation solution for the aquaculture industry.

Producing fish that meet consumer expectations is crucial. By including carotenoids (naturally occurring colorants) in aquaculture feeds, producers can improve the color and appearance of fish and crustaceans both safely and consistently. We have an established track record in the development of carotenoid solutions for aquaculture customers.

The carotenoid CAROPHYLL® Pink provides precise control over the shade of fish pigmentation. Its outstanding bioavailability and stability has made it the carotenoid of choice for over 20 years.
