A clear vision for a commitment to
the preservation of marine resources.
It contains between 65% and 70% of high-quality protein and it is rich in Omega-3, which constitutes an essential source of nutrition and energy used as supply for animal breeding in livestock, sheep and porcine industry, being aquaculture the most important one.
Valued for its health benefits, thanks to the essential Omega-3 fatty acids (EPA and DHA). It is used in aquaculture and for human consumption through capsules used as a supplement for human health.
Distribution of anchovy into two
population units: North-Central stock
(in front of Peru) and Southern stock
(in front of Peru and northern Chile).
The only species authorized for fishmeal production. It has several advantages over other species.
It is distributed into two population units: north-central and southern stock.
Its distribution is associated to the extension of cold coastal waters of the Humboldt Current , (ranges between 16 ° and 23 ° C in the summer and 14 ° and 18 ° C in the winter), salinities between 34.5 and 35.1 ppm, and high nutrient concentrations (phosphates, silicates, and nitrates).
According to the distance from the coast, anchovy is found as far as 80 nautical miles. This range is variable, because it has been observed even as far as 200 miles.
Anchovy makes huge shoals which, in periods of high availability, make easier the catch of great magnitude.
Reproductive cycle of 6 months. Life cycle: 3 years. Maturity: at 12 cm long (1 year old). In 3 years, it reaches a maximum of 20 cm. Minimum size for fishing: 12 cm.
Essential and indispensable in the formula for aquaculture, optimizing growth, development and reproduction of fish, as well as resistance to illnesses
Quality energy and protein source, with a high proportion of essential amino-acids.
Well-being and productivity of animals: improve immunity, reduce mortality, reduce severity of inflammatory illnesses.
Governs brain functions, blood pressure, cholesterol level, as well as inflammatory and allergic functions.
Synonymous of development during pregnancy, lactation, maturity, adulthood, and, particularly, in the old age.
