Modes of Action.

Our effective range of feed additives and dietary feed supplements are specifically selected and developed to support animal health and productivity. Their modes of action add value and benefit.


Trace minerals and vitamins are important co-factors in physiologic processes. Trace elements function as activators of antioxidant enzymes. Vitamins have numerous roles in biochemical functions.

Structural Element

Serves as an integral element in vital structures. E.g., iron is a crucial component of hemoglobin for oxygen transport. Calcium is required for the building of bones and eggshell mineralization.

Less Antagonistic Effects

In organically bound minerals the metals are protected against antagonistic effects like creating undesired bonds between other feed molecules.

Beneficial Absorption Rate

Effective transport to the intestinal wall leads to a higher absorption. Organically bound minerals have a superior bioavailability than inorganic minerals.

Product Description.

Trace minerals are important for healthy fish and are critical for optimal growth and performance. The amounts needed per day are measured in milligrams—or less—but are essential to sustain life, fight disease, and promote growth, development, and healthy reproduction in fish.

Despite the importance of trace minerals, they are often supplemented in an inorganic form, bound to sulfate or oxide. However, inorganic trace minerals are easily separated in the gut allowing for the formation of insoluble complexes with other free metals or other dietary components. This results in unabsorbed minerals being excreted in the feces, potentially contaminating the environment.

The key components in E.C.O.Trace® Fish are E.C.O.Trace® glycine chelates—trace minerals organically bound to the amino acid glycine, also commonly known as glycinates. Organic trace elements have greater binding strength and are better protected from antagonistic effects in the gut. The result is that more trace minerals are better absorbed and metabolized, with a direct impact on animal health and productivity.

E.C.O.Trace® Fish’s highly effective trace elements reduce heavy metal contamination of water and soil, enhance protection against pond eutrophication, increase disease resistance, decrease antagonism with other minerals, and improve overall aquatic health.

Trace minerals are only a small part of the total feed—but it makes all the difference! Trace elements can only provide nutritional value if they are absorbed. E.C.O.Trace® Fish has been successfully used in high-performance animal feeds with proven superior absorption over inorganic trace minerals. E.C.O.Trace® Fish glycine-chelates are an easy choice!
