A new force for growth, vitality and color.

Motiv is the entirely new bioactive protein that promotes performance and gain for shrimp and your operation. Motiv increases the energy uptake of the entire diet — increasing growth, survival and resistance to disease, while producing vibrant color.

Improved gut health.

Through a prebiotic effect from a fermented protein, Motiv creates a better environment for beneficial microbes and accelerates their growth.

Improved nutrient uptake and feed conversion.

A healthier gut creates a more efficient uptake of energy from the entire diet, better utilizing nutrients for faster growth and gain.

Increased survival and resistance to disease.

With more energy made available to the shrimp, this reduces overall stress on the animal and increases resistance to diseases, including EMS.
