New feed for sea urchins

Sea urchins can now enjoy a new type of feed from Fiskeriforskning.

Until now, so-called wet feed has been used for feeding of sea urchins. However, this type of feed is labour-intensive and expensive because of the high water content, refrigeration requirements and shorter shelf life.

The new dry feed, which was developed at Fiskeriforsknings Feed Technology Centre, has proven to give just as good growth results as the wet feed.
