Canadian Aquatic Feed Inc. is a comparatively new Canadian manufacturer of premium quality aquatic food pellets for ornamental fish. Their mission is “To enhance peoples’ aquariums by offering premium quality fish foods, by mimicking the natural feeding habits of all aquatic fish species throughout a natural easily digestible diet. Our vision is to make NorthFin Premium Fish Foods the leading fish food brand in the aquarium industry”. In my opinion, they have achieved their mission and are rapidly gaining ground to achieve their vision!
The founder Darius Chodocinskas has been an aquatic specialist for over 30 years. Throughout his career Darius has experimented with many different feeding formulas but was never satisfied with certain ingredients (fillers, hormones and pigments). He then decided to create NorthFin™, the first premium fish feed that consists of high quality, easily digestible ingredients. It is also free of any added artificial hormones/pigments and unnecessary fillers. Canadian Aquatic Feed Inc with their NorthFin™ products has set a new standard in the aquatic food industry.
The food comes in a variety of packaging including 20g, 50g, 100g, 250g, 500g, 1kg, 2.5kg. Not all of the varied assortment of foods comes in all sizes. The sizes that NorthFin produce in each are acceptable and closely reflect the requirements most fish-keepers would require.
Only the highest marine grade proteins and additives are used in all of NorthFin’s product line. NorthFin does not use any low grade ingredients or fillers. NorthFin Premium Fish Foods are artificial pigment free and have no added hormones.
NorthFin uses a state of the art, low heat Steam Extrusion process to manufacture its premium product line. Their Double Screw Steam Extrusion process is a gentle form of cooking ingredients. This is beneficial for nutrients and vitamins to be kept intact right through the finished product. Conversely a conventional dry extruding process degrades and destroys significant percentages of nutrients and vitamins.
NorthFin Premium Fish Foods does not use any preservatives or harmful chemicals to preserve its product line. The combination of certain ingredients/vitamins, along with the drying process itself allows the foods to be naturally preserved. All of NorthFin’s Premium Product Line consist on formulas which are 100% Filler Free, By-Product Free, Artificial Pigment Free and have no added hormones. NorthFin products are manufactured in a CFIA /USDA/FDA registered and certified facility located in Toronto, Canada.
