World’s first microcapsule
for larval feed

Micropro is a microencapsulated larval feed especially designed for nutrition of marine larvae (shrimp, sea bass, sea bream, cleaner fish, etc.) ranging in size from 5 to 500 microns.

It has been developed with the specific goal of replacing live feed, especially artemia and rotifers. Micropro’s defining characteristic lies in its technical nature: it is a true microcapsule. This enables the product to store and deliver valuable nutrients in:

  • Water soluble ingredients
  • Heat sensitive ingredients
  • Probiotics, prebiotics and immunostimulants

How it works

When the microcapsules come into contact with water, they slowly release larvae attractants such as free amino acids and peptides. However, all essential nutrients are retained in the capsules, preserving water quality and reducing bacteria proliferation in the tanks.

The digestive system of marine larvae is not fully developed and this is one of the reasons why marine larvae must be fed live prey like artemia or rotifers. By providing them with pre-digested proteins, the absorption of nutrients is effectively facilitated.
