Shrimp and other crustacean aquaculture is booming around the world from South East Asia to South – Central America. However, there are still many ‘bottle-necks’ that impede the development of this industry. Nutrition of broodstock, larvae and post-larvae are still heavily reliant on fresh and frozen organisms which may act as pathogen transfer vectors, among other disadvantages.

Health management and reduction to stress susceptibility is still a major issue – with every life stage of shrimp. Viruses and other pathogens are still major threats for the viability of this industry.

Nutrakol’s approach to these issues is through a holistic and natural view. Our products are not aiming at the pathogen itself, but rather, improving the animal resistance, immune system and its nutrition and physiological condition.


LobGrow is a new semi-moist diet and booster for lobster juveniles. It can be fed as a full replacement of fresh/frozen feed or used as a nutritional booster.

LobGrow  is a pelleted semi-moist diet that contains all the essential nutrients for lobsters better growth and survival. It is stable for 24 hours in the water, reducing leaching and water fouling in growout cages.

Using LobGrow (recommended with feed trays) reduce the need for cleaning the cages and significantly reduce mortality due to pathogens.

    Grow out diets Fishmeal replacement diets are currently being developed and tested around the world. In some cases, plant-based proteins are already replacing substantial amounts of fishmeal (e.g. salmon diets). However, marine finfish diets are still, almost solely based on fishmeal as a protein source. One of the impediments for...
  • NutraMeta Enhance
    The metamorphosis stage in fish larvae marks the transition to the definitive phenotype of all the body systems, such as; digestive system, visual and olfactory, skeleton, muscles, skin, pigmentation and behaviour. This transformation process from ‘embryo’ to fully developed fish demands high physiological and nutritional resources from the larvae. Therefore,...
  • NutraParagone
    Parasites are an integral part of any aquatic environment and can often be found on wild fish. In aquaculture, where usually conditions are sub-optimal, chances of infection are increased through raised stress levels in fish which directly affects their immune response. Poor immune response reduces the ability of fish to...
