Cichlid Lovers Tropical Fish

Freeze Dried Pacifica Plankton (Euphausia pacifica)


Euphausia pacifica is similar nutritionally to its cousin, Euphausia superba, but is about one-third the size, approximately .25 to .5 inches in length. It's a rich source of carotenoids, including astaxanthin, that will bring out the colors in both marine and freshwater fish. Proper handling and drying keeps natural flavourants, proteins and lipids largely intact. Powerful flavourants act as an attractant to many species of fish.  Approx analysis: Protein, 60%; Fat, 8%; Carbohydrates, 11%; Ash, 10%; Moisture, 5%; Astaxanthin (pigment), 150 - 200 ppm.

Photo is of 1/4 pound laying on the keyboard, since it's freeze dried it's very light weight and a little goes a long ways!
