Alltech’s Coppens unveils aquatic feed products

January 22, 2017

The Coppens International production facility in Nettetal, Germany.

Coppens International, an Alltech company and international aquatic feed solutions provider based in Helmond, Netherlands, has introduced several new algae products containing Alltech technologies to the Coppens International aquatic product range.

These products were developed to provide customers with a sustainable alternative to fish oil and inorganic trace minerals as well as provide functional additives to support fish health.

“We have added Alltech’s ForPlus, which is not only derived from algae, but is a fully traceable and sustainable source of DHA omega-3 and a fish oil replacement,” said Gijs Rutjes, technical sales support manager at Coppens International. “Test results show that by completely replacing fish oil with ForPlus, we have been able to transfer a high amount of DHA omega-3 into the fish. Due to the unsustainable global supply of fish oil, this is a huge leap forward for our aquaculture nutrition programs.”

Coppens will also introduce a new product to the market, Neogreen, a high-quality, sustainable trout feed and the first on the market to contain ForPlus.

The new Coppens International range of products addresses the availability and quality of fish oil and fishmeal that continues to decline, impacting DHA omega-3 levels in farmed fish. Research recently carried out by University of Stirling in Scotland showed that levels of DHA omega-3 oils in farmed salmon have fallen significantly in the past five years.

DHA omega-3 produced through algae offers a viable alternative in the creation of functional foods. “Our latest range will make strides in arresting the decline in levels of DHA omega-3 in farmed fish,” said Mr. Rutjes.
