Energetics Mysis Shrimp
Unlike many processed fish foods, MYSIS are (or very
closely resemble) a food item which fish would normally contact
within their native environment.
High Protein: The protein content is in excess
of that normally recommended for growth, maintenance, and
High Animal Fat: Mysis relicta make nightly
vertical migrations from 360 feet to the surface to eat, then
return to 360 feet at daybreak. These migrations require enormous
amounts of energy which is stored in MYSIS as animal fat.
The consumption of MYSIS makes this energy available to fish
for general metabolism, swimming, defending territory, and
Sodium Free: MYSIS are truly "freshwater".
The lack of salt intake for fish (especially for marine animals)
is desirable since these fish are constantly struggling to
expel salt from their bodies.
Fish Eat Them: It has been well noted that
the most finicky fish will eat MYSIS with enthusiasm. Credible
sources (references available) report that discus, seahorses
(including the leafy sea dragon), tangs, and butterfly fishes
will eat MYSIS eagerly (even when stressed or poorly acclimating)!
It is a naturally occurring fatty acid in Mysis relicta that
initiates this positive feeding response in fish and only
Mysis relicta has such naturally high quantities of it.
