Aker BioMarine secures FDA approval for QRILL Aqua in US

Aker BioMarine has received approval from the FDA for the use of its QRILL Aqua and QRILL High Protein (QHP) products in freshwater and marine salmonids.

Since Aker BioMarine’s krill products contain astaxanthin, a natural source of red colour that may enhance the colour of salmon flesh, the FDA classified it as a colour additive.

“We have been waiting for this approval for a long time” said Sigve Nordrum, EVP Animal Health and Nutrition, Aker BioMarine.

Made from Antarctic krill, Aker BioMarine’s QRILL Aqua functions as a feeding stimulant designed to increase feed uptake and enhance growth.
