Aqura is designed to help sick fish. When the fish is sick, it needs adapted nutrition with high palatability which is extra easy for the body to absorb. Skretting's fish health team, together with researchers from Skretting ARC, has therefore developed the product Aqura to give the fish what it needs.

The name Aqura is derived from the element the fish lives in, namely water, - AQUA - and not least from the suffix «qura» - which refers to CURE, or healing. Thus we get the meaning «healing in water », - which is important in this context. In addition, the name of the Latin word ACCURO - which is pronounced rather similarly phonetically, - and which means "perform with care" and "take care of", which further reinforces the underlying meaning of the word.
