ok you are on the other side vs. what I was reffering too. There is not enough protein I feel. ANy other havbe thoghts?

The fat is higher than normal for a 32% protein food. However I would like to see the protein level up to at least 36% protein. Also depends on source of protein as well, does it have a good fishy smell? Label mentions fsh meal? I will talk to Purina Aquamax rep at the PB conference and see if they can ship their product to you. Good luck and thanks for info.

I think the question is what makes up the protein. Some ingredients can be high protein but indigestible to fish.

I wonder what species of fish would be used in Europe as fish protein?

The most noted useless "protein" that I've heard of is ground up chicken feathers. High protein but indigestible by fish.

You need to get some AquaMax largemouth pellets somehow! They look like they really like the feed, I wish mine would learn to eat pellets, currently I have only 3 or 4 that do.

I just picked up some AuquaMax LM this past weekend..I got very few hits on the larger pellets but they continued to feed on the smaller pellets..The bass are plenty big enough, I think I need to keep trying.
