Olpheel

OUR RANGE OF SPECIFIC SOLUTIONS FOR AQUACULTURE

WHAT IS “OLPHEEL” ? 

olpheel aquaculture

Aquaculture is the fastest growing protein production sector to feed the world. Aquatic animals require specific technology, nutrition and attention to be produced sustainably and efficiently. We consider that solutions for aquaculture have to be adapted and designed for its specific challenges: as opposed to livestock farming, in water, you cannot separate the animals from feed, from organic and inorganic matter, and from the environment.

 

We thus have allied our olfaction and well-being knowledge to an aquaculture expertise to design Olpheel, the first aquaculture brand dedicated to well-being. Olpheel range is composed of different helping solutions for the main issues that occur during shrimp and salmonids farming: to support a good feed consumption, to stimulate their natural defences, to support their physiological state, and to contribute to make them feeling well in their environment.

PRODUCTS OF THE RANGE

Marine shrimp are the group of species with the highest value among top produced aquaculture species in the world. This is due to high technology and investments from the industry and research, as these animals have complex feed behavior and specific physiologic needs to be produced efficiently.  Production systems differ around the globe, from semi-extensive to intensive systems, with different challenges in every single farm.

 

Shrimp farming is an activity that requires good welfare management, as shrimp are fragile animals with weak and non-adaptive natural defences and are exposed to a wide range of risks from bacteria and parasites in the water throughout their production cycle. Shrimp are also exposed to various stressors that impact on their natural defences and behaviour.

 

Managing the various stressors and supporting their natural defences is therefore essential to maintain the well-being of shrimp and the associated efficiency of their production systems.

Olpheel Good

Olpheel Good is a neurosensorial solution designed for shrimp well-being. It stimulates their chemoreception system and thus stimulates feeding behaviour. It is composed of different olfactive nucleus that can contribute to:

  • Attract shrimps
  • Stimulate its feed consumption (palatability)
  • Reduce stressors and increase feed intake
  • Keeping shrimp in a good state of well-being
Benefits

Incorporating Olpheel Good to your protocol can help to:

  • Reduce stressors and increase feed intake
  • Support shrimp growth
  • Help to reach a better size homogeneity
  • Reduce feed wastes in ponds
  • Reduce duration of production cycle with a higher productivity

Shrimp production is composed of different steps in different environments, where shrimp evolves from successive larval stages to adult animals. Managing these steps requires a lot of precautions as shrimp are fragile animals. Indeed, a lot of stressful events can occur during the different phases: climatic changes, transport, infections and diseases, dietary changes or meteorologic events… These stressors affect shrimp making them weaker, more exposed to bacterial and parasite risks in water, as they do not have a developed natural defences. It reduces their appetite which stops them from assimilating the energy they need.

 

Olpheel Good acts on shrimp feed behaviour to enhance their feed intake and their appetite, which will reduce stress inducing messages, as appetite & stress messages cannot be activated simultaneously. This has led to a higher survival rate and growth, and in higher biomass and productivity as observed in our clients’ farms.

Olpheel Good is a powder that can be mixed with the feed directly on the farm. The use of specific binders like fish oil is not needed. The incorporation rate depends on the application and step of production of the animal. Olpheel Good is not adapted to an incorporation in an aquafeed plant.

Olpheel Protect

Olpheel Protect is the combination of Phodé’s expertise on botanic molecules for 25 years and our aquaculture knowledge.
Based on essential oils and spices, Olpheel Protect is composed of plant extracts selected for their numerous effects on the resistance of shrimps, notably by reinforcing natural defences and limiting the risks linked to bacteria and parasites present in water, animal tissues and the intestine. Olpheel Protect is a botanical feed additive.

Benefits

Incorporating Olpheel Protect to your protocol can contribute to:

  • Support of natural defences
  • Prevents the risk of bacteria and parasites in the water.
  • Prevents the risks associated with bacteria and parasites in the gut.
  • Strengthen gut barrier

Pathogens and diseases are one of the main issues of aquaculture. Especially in shrimp farming that has seen some epidemics totally annihilate production in some countries (Taura syndrome, WSSV). Resistance to diseases was also the main reason why the whiteleg shrimp Litopeneaus vannamei replaced the former tiger shrimp Peneaus monodon in the majority of shrimp farms worldwide.  As shrimp do not possess a developed natural defences (no adaptative immunity as known for vertebrates), they are prone to a lot of diseases.

 

Antibiotics have proven not to be the long-term solution and their use has to be reduced because of antimicrobial resistance and their negative image among consumers. Control of pathogen in the environment is not possible in systems that use sea-water or freshwater without high-technology treatment.

 

This is why we have developed Olpheel Protect, a botanical solution to support the shrimp’s natural defences against these many factors. Olpheel Protect has also been shown to reduce bacterial and parasite pressure in the water and in the animals’ gut.

Olpheel Protect is a powder that can be mixed with feed directly on the farm or in the plant during aquafeed manufacturing. Incorporation rate depends on the application and production step. For further information, please contact our technical team.

PRODUCTS OF THE RANGE

Salmonids are among the highest-value species in aquaculture and most notorious farmed aquatic animals for consumers. With a long production cycle (1 to 2,5 years), specific physiological needs and complex systems (freshwater and marine farming), salmonid production faces an important number of challenges to be done efficiently.

 

Trout are one of the first farmed aquatic species and freshwater trout farming has expended itself around the globe in every continent. Trout as carnivorous animals are facing demand of sustainable and cost-effective feeding.

 

Salmon farming has been subject to an exponential technologic development and as well as important research in nutrition and feeding, leading to what are today the highest level of production technologies in aquaculture. Salmon are farmed in different systems, with numerous transitions where they are exposed to acute stress, a wide variety of risks related to bacteria and parasites around the world.  Salmonids farming is still growing and need sustainable solutions to support animal defenses, improve their feeding, water quality, but also to improve the animal’s welfare during production.

Pathogens and diseases are one of the main issues of aquaculture. Salmonids being produced mostly in freshwater controlled environment but also in sea cages, are far from safe. Sea lice is the biggest issue in the industry worldwide, being not only a parasite that hurts and weakens the animal but helping other disease occurrence as Vibriosis, SRS (Salmonid Rickettsial Septicaemia) or AGD (Amoebic Gill Disease).

 

Antibiotics have proven not to be the long-term solution and their use has to be reduced because of antimicrobial resistance and their negative image among consumers.
