Astaxanthin is a feed additive which intensifies the pigmentation of fish and crustaceans. The animals are reliant on astaxanthin intake since they cannot synthesize the carotenoid themselves. In the wild, astaxanthin is produced by plants, bacteria, algae and fungi, and from these organisms it is transferred up the food chain and stored in organisms that have the ability to do so. In culture situations where fish and crustaceans are not able to obtain enough “wild pigment” to satisfactorily pigment their tissues, astaxanthin preparations can be incorporated into the formulated feed.
Fish and crustaceans living in aquaculture cannot feed on carotenoid-containing algae and fish, they have to be provided with additional pigments in their feed. In other words, aquaculture farmers who want their salmon, trout and shrimp to have the desired high-quality color have to give nature a little boost. Lucantin® Pink added to the feed provides the required color.
