One research report confirms that:
“The facility in Western Norway has thus implemented a production cycle for trout in the sea, using no delousing methods other than feed, and thereby demonstrating the possibilities of a completely new strategy for combating lice infestations in rainbow trout.”
Slime production affects harvest quality
Field studies and analyses conducted by reputable R&D institutions document increased slime amounts when the sole lice treatment used throughout the entire production cycle was BioFeed. A recent field study showed that rainbow trout fed with regular growth feed had on average 2.1 mature female lice, while rainbow trout fed with BioFeed had 0.3.
