Unleash the full
potential of your hatchery
with Molofeed

Founded in 2015, Molofeed is a pioneering feed company dedicated to the development, production, and supply of specialized, innovative, high-quality feeds for fish and shrimp with continuity in performance from hatchery to harvest. A Norwegian company specialized in microencapsulation, Molofeed has developed and patented a method for creating a new microcapsule that allows any water-soluble nutrients to be enclosed in a shell. The capsules can then be dried into a powder-like product, allowing for ease storage and long shelf life. Staying in suspension until ingested by the animal, micro-encapsulation in hatchery feeds not only ensures that the tiniest animals get the sustenance they need but also prevents nutrient leaching from the micronized feed particles. That optimizes hatchery outputs and reduces the need for antibiotics.

Our technology has the potential to transform the industry by producing higher-quality seeds, increasing biological yields. We believe a powerful synergy between science and expertise is necessary to shape a better and more sustainable future for global aquaculture. With a vision to improve the utilization of the ocean while creating solutions to global food security, Molofeed is dedicated to supporting responsible aquaculture by repurposing seafood co-products and sustainable marine ingredients into super-prime nutrients applied in the most potent feed technology for hatcheries.

Stabilizing nutrients inside micro-capsules which stay in suspension and are as small as the diameter of a single silk fiber, represents an immense advantage for the hatcheries. It means hatchery managers can reduce feed quantity and disfavor opportunistic bacteria as each feed particle remain complete at ingestion by the early stages of aquatic animals. As a result, we observe higher survivals and faster and more homogeneous growth resulting in more robust and stronger juveniles.

Water quality matters

• Our new micro-encapsulation technology helps to ensure that aquatic animals get the nutrition they need while also helping to keep the water clean and free of harmful contaminants.
• By encapsulating critical nutrients, our technology helps to optimize the intake of essential nutrients while also maintaining water quality.
• As a result, we always expect higher survivals, better growth, healthier animals, and a more homogeneous batch.

We believe

• Hatcheries play a critical role in the aquaculture industry by providing robust animals to farms.
• The benefits of robust animals include better survival rates, faster growth, reduced biological risk and reduced need of antibiotics.
• Better offspring for the industry optimizes profitability and efficiency.

Our role is

• To create technologies and techniques that hatcheries can easily apply.
• To share knowledge and work alongside hatcheries, implementation of products and solutions to improve efficiency and resolve challenges becomes easy.

Our Commitment to
a sustainable aquaculture industry

With a commitment to developing micro-encapsulated feeds foreffective hatchery production of marine species. Instead of eliminating live feed, our mindset is to focus on optimization.

Since 2017

We commissioned our first factory in Bergen, Norway, in 2017, we have successfully developed and tested several innovative products with selected partners in Scandinavia, South America, and Asia. Through our extensive research, we are proud to introduce our hatchery line for shrimp and marine finfish.


As we continue to develop innovative products to advance the hatchery production, efficiency and profitability, we are expanding our R&D capacity with a brand-new facility located in Natal-Brazil - Molofeed Marine Aquaculture Research Centre - LATAM, the first of its kind in Latin America will be a Research Centre focus on marine hatchery nutrition, circular technology application, and training for the hatcheries.
