This report presents the results of a feeding experiment performed by Matis ohf. for Adisseo. The trial objective was to compare the effect of Asta-S on the intensity of pigmentation in whiteleg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei), compared with two other pigmenting feed additives (Carophyll Pink and Panaferd). The diets were formulated by Dr. Wolfgang Koppe (Matis) and produced in the feed production facilities of Matis as pellets suitable for adult P. vannamei. The trial was carried out at the Matís Aquaculture Research Station (MARS). A 24-day feeding period was done in triplicate tanks with 10 shrimp each. The average temperature was at 26.35 °C and salinity at 22.3 ppt.
