Copepods are a type of tiny crustacean zooplankton that is considered as the world's largest bio-resource. Most aquatic species are dependent of copepods during parts of or their whole life cycle. They are eaten by fishes, larval fishes, corals, jellyfish, shrimps, filter feeders and many more.
Ocean Prime Copepods have a nutritional profile that meets the requirements of fish, crustaceans, invertebrates and corals. The typical lipid content is 10-15%, and a protein content of about 50% of dry weight. The lipids are rich in essential fatty acids as DHA and EPA bound to phospholipids and also contain high levels of pigments like astaxanthin. Ocean Prime Copepods are harvested in clean, unpolluted Arctic waters, with eco-friendly harvesting methods.
The preservation technique involves no harmful additives which makes the nutritional quality far better compared to frozen feed. Ocean Prime Copepods are 100% clean. Needs no pre-rinsing before use. The product is sterilized for bio-security and sealed, minimizing nutrient leakage.
Suitable for saltwater and freshwater fish, corals, inverterbrates and crustaceans.
Copepod available in 500-700µm (micrometer) and 2mm
