SOLitude Lake Management Signature Series: Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed
Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed takes the guesswork out of choosing the correct feed for your pond. By linking key nutritional parameters with biological and physiological responses in fish and monitoring the feed’s effects on the quality of the waters, Optimal Fish Food has developed a feed utilizing cutting-edge ingredients, high-quality proteins, and fortified key amino acids. As a result, Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed provides the nutritional requirements to grow healthy fish and increase feed conversion rate, all while minimizing water quality impact.
Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed is available in a 3.5mm and 5mm pellet. The 42% protein and 10% lipid formulation uses highly digestible protein sources with known attractant and palatability characteristics to encourage feed training. Fortified vitamins, amino acids, and antioxidant levels also support superior growth and health in crucial life stages.
Typical commercial feeds utilize ingredients with high levels of phytic acids. This source of phosphorus is not available to fish and passes through their system undigested and into the water column. Once released into the environment, it breaks down and becomes available to phytoplankton and bacteria, which leads to algal blooms and accelerates the growth of macrophytic plants.
Unlike typical commercial feeds, Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed utilizes key ingredients that have been treated with phytase, which converts phytic acid into more digestible forms of phosphorus. Reducing the unabsorbed phosphorus not only significantly impacts your water quality but also provides the fish with more phosphorus to incorporate into their tissues as they grow. While these enzyme-treated ingredients are generally more expensive, Optimal Low Phos Fish Feed will support healthy fish growth and reduce negative water quality impacts, which are critical aspects of managing a trophy fishery.
