Information about the main ingredients:
Whole Kelp (Organic Certified)
Kelp is a type of marine seaweed. Seaweeds come in three different color varieties, red, green and brown. Kelp meal, on average, supplies around 60 minerals, 21 amino acids and 12 vitamins. Kelp also provides sources of nitrogen and potassium, micro-nutrients, carbohydrates and essential plant hormones. The regular use of Kelp as a feed supplement helps increase the utilization of all ingredients in a complete feed ration, improving the overall health and performance of your fish.
Antarctic Krill are a type of shrimp-like marine invertebrate animal. Each krill consists of about 15% high quality protein containing vital amino acids and about 3% fat and vitamins. It supplies minerals such as iron, phosphorus, and calcium. It is human consumption grade.
Krill is a source of natural carotenoids. Over 95% of the pigments present in krill are in the form of asthaxantin. Asthaxantin is not only a natural pigment, but also functions as a photo-protector and anti-oxidant. Furthermore, it has been proven that asthaxantin has an effect in rates of growth and immuno-modulation of both fish and shrimp.
Antarctic Krill are caught in the clear Antarctic Ocean and are processed within one hour and packed on board specially equipped ships to ensure its freshness, taste and superlative quality.
High Omega-3 Herring Meal (Certified)
High Omega-3 Herring Meal is the highest grade fish meal. This special product has a higher concentration of DHA. Prepared from herring, Clupea harengus (Atlantic herring). Freshly caught and frozen in minutes on well maintained Canadian ships. On arrival to port, all catch is processed in around two hours.
Whole Sardine Meal
The sardine, is an ocean going fish well known for traveling in large groups, or schools. The sardine is related to the herring, and sometimes small fish labeled as sardine is actually herring. The sardine is widely fished in the Pacific and Atlantic.

It also contains a wide range of minerals (including iron, potassium, magnesium, sodium, phosphorus, calcium etc.), a high volume of beta-carotene and high volumes of gamma-linolein. Further, spirulina contains phycocyanin which can only be found in spirulina.
Astaxanthin (Haematococcus algae)

Some of garlics properties and benefits in fish food include increasing appetite and flavor, boosting the immune system and as a guard against parasites.
Calcium Montmorillonite Clay

I'm SO pleased with this product, as well as the community fish pellets I purchased. I was enthralled when I found out about Northfin fish food. What is and isn't on the ingredients list is impressive, to say the least, and it's made in the same country I live in. My algae eaters, who seemed to be just scraping by, are now thriving on these foods! They actually come out from hiding to eat with the guppies instead of waiting until dark to get the scraps, if there are any. I can't see myself ever switching back to the conventional food. It may cost more, but I feel that it's well worth the difference in cost.
