Olpheel Eat is a sensory solution designed for shrimp appetite and feed consumption. It stimulates their chemoreception system and thus stimulates feeding behaviour. It is composed of different olfactory nucleus that contribute to:
Stimulate shrimp orientation towards feed
Improve shrimp feed consumption via higher palatability
Stimulate shrimp appetite and improve their loyalty to feed
Enhance palatability of low-fishmeal and medicated feeds
Optimize cost of formula
Why use Olpheel EAT?
Shrimp are carnivorous animals with an important requirement in protein. Fishmeal is the most suited protein for shrimp, but the scarcity of fish stocks and the high and still-rising prices of fishmeal induce a reduction of fishmeal inclusion in formulas. This fishmeal is generally replaced by plant protein, or more recently alternative proteins like microalgae or single-cell protein which can provide nutritional compensation but will decrease palatability.
Shrimp are also subject to a lot of variations in environmental factors, which directly impact feed intake. For example, winter season and low temperatures are often associated to lower feed consumption in shrimp ponds.
As shrimp have a complex feeding behaviour with different steps (detection, orientation, choice, ingestion, and rejection of pellets), it is important to ensure that feed will be consumed. A lot of products are used on the market today to enhance feed intake with attractive compounds, mostly animal hydrolysates, but few products are looking into working at the appetite level.
Olpheel Eat is a high-technology solution adapted to shrimp taste. With its complete and complex composition, Olpheel Eat operates at different levels of the feed intake process in shrimp, including:
detection, orientation and locomotion towards feed,
pellet consumption limiting rejections,
appetite messages at cerebral level.
Feeds with low palatability can be improved with Olpheel Eat to allow a easier consumption and by all shrimp in the pond : the animals benefit then from the whole feed quality, feed losses are reduced and thus water quality improved in ponds. By stimulating feed intake behaviour at neurosensory levels in ponds, Olpheel Eat will contribute to make every shrimp eat, leading to higher homogeneity of sizes and higher biomass.
