Care, in-depth scientific methodology and detailed attention at all stages, are vital for the development of tailored aquafeed solutions.
Currently we produce targeted fish feeds for Mediterranean aquaculture species below, covering both their growth and reproduction stages.
- Gilthead Sea Bream
- European Sea Bass
- Greater Amberjack
- Rainbow Trout
Our nutritional team carefully formulates their development, specification and production based on the most recent scientific findings of specific nutrient requirements.
Particular and careful attention goes into the raw materials selection and their precisely defined nutritional content and value.
We evaluate and select with great care, the ingredients that boost the immune system of fish, particularly through winter months and/or periods of additional stress.
As the leading producer of feeds certified for Organic aquaculture in the Mediterranean, we follow regulations and certifications that ensure the utmost sustainability, safety and quality.
All plant raw materials used in our organic feeds line, originate from organic farming practices and are formally certified as such. Fish meal and fish oils originate from sustainable sources.
Our medicated feeds are produced in a completely separate plant, strictly against a veterinary prescription. The entire process is licensed by the Hellenic National Organization of Medicines (Ref Number: 27470).
Our medicated feeds production line, uses best in class technology that assures total precision in dosing, mixing, and coating processes, ensuring the assimilation of drug ingredient in the center of the pellet. In doing so, we make certain that farmed species are getting the entire prescribed dose. At the same time, the dispersion of even the tiniest drug in the sea is avoided.
At IRIDA, our customers are part of the team. We listen to their needs, learn from their input and improve our processes to help them optimise their production and business goals.
Our advisory team of nutritionists, marine biologists and fish health specialists are here to help, develop and apply the best possible, niche solutions to each customer’s specific requirements.
Our advisory services cover the following areas:
- Development of custom-made feeding protocols.
- Development and management of breeding programs.
- Definition of emerging fish species’ nutritional requirements.
- Establishment of protocols that cover fish health and welfare.
Committed to providing innovative, end-to-end customer services, we created BiTogether (Business Intelligence Together), a unique business intelligence solution that we develop for our customers.
Its purpose is to simplify the process of transforming aquaculture production data to knowledge and enhance production.
We always seek to offer “end-to-end” solutions to our partners, that work well both for them and the environment.
To this end, in 2021, we invested in Aquatic Biologicals, a spin-off company of the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, becoming the majority shareholders. Aquatic Biologicals is a Marine Biotechnology Company devoted to the prevention of fish diseases in aquaculture.
Led by a team of fish researchers and animal health scientists, Aquatic Biologicals has invested heavily in the design and production of autogenous vaccines and provides diagnostic services in aquaculture. We have initiated together a project to construct a GMP+ certified laboratory facility, the first in Greece, dedicated to the production of customised autogenous vaccines for Mediterranean fish species.
