NATURAL FREEZE-DRIED FOODS CONTAINED IN THE DIET OF DOMESTIC FISH
The so-called natural foods consist of whole organisms, not submitted to the usual processing. Supplementing the habitual diet of fish with natural food is very important: not only are the animals stimulated, through sight and smell, to their natural behaviour of hunting and preying, but it has also been demonstrated that whole foods promote the proper development and functionalities of the internal organs, especially in young, growing fish.
The freeze-drying process (freezing followed by dehydrating in a controlled atmosphere) to which these foods are submitted keeps all their nutritional properties practically intact - including vitamins. When they are later re-hydrated with water and then offered, the fish will be ingesting a complete food that is almost identical to natural live food.
Using natural freeze-dried food is recommended in particular for fish used to hunting live prey, or during the adaptation phase, when conventional fish food is not accepted.
