18/05/2017: Commercial Copepod Production - a World first

The market for copepods is enormous. 

All marine fish and crustaceans eat copepods as the natural prey during their first live stages in the wild and therefore get the nutritional components they need. The high levels of Omega 3 fatty acids (DHA, EPA) in the copepods strengthen the larvae to survive the highly stressful and sensible first live phase.

C-Feed is the world’s first commercial producer of live copepods and copepod eggs. Started in 2014, but with over 15 years of background research from the Norwegian university of science and technology and SINTEF Sealab, C-Feed opened the doors to the first industrial scale production plant for copepods in 2016. Based in Trondheim, the center of aquaculture in Norway, there was a lot of great competence and experience available for realising this milestone.
