And since Ken's doesn't seem to sell freeze dried Krill in bulk anymore what sites are others using to buy like 8oz to 1lb? I've gotten some from Your Fish Stuff which seems to be ok & cheaper than many others but curious where besides Jehmco (not convenient since no online ordering) or Brine Shrimp Direct (only sells 4 oz, 8oz or 1kg (2.2lbs) it's not ideal either. Shipping on 8oz is pretty high for just buying 8oz of one product. And 1kg comes in big hard plastic bucket which seemed to have a lot of fines & is harder to store.

Native Keeper, this was Ken's source for most of his Freeze Dried Foods...

You can still get the high quality "Krill Superba" from these folks. I get all of my freeze dried foods from these guys. You also might want to look at the silkworms.

It's funny you should mention that as after I posted asking about a Krill source, I did a search on ebay & found that very store. :) It's great to know that was Ken's source for Krill. :) I'll definitely order there next time. Not sure why Ken's quit selling it ... it was nice because I usually needed other fish supplies that he had. Now I have to place 2 orders at 2 different stores & paying almost twice as much for shipping. :(

Just an FYI, I noticed NorthfinUSA has way more varieties available than say mops site does. Especially since they have that 6mm Krill Gold. :)

Thanks for the info. Prices seem higher but it's free shipping so would have to see which is cheaper in the end.

I've place a couple orders now with NorthfinUSA www.northfinusa.com/ and and received good service.

Shipping is added to the price of the product, so it looks deceptively like shipping is free. For me, I would save $0.56 on Amazon on 100g of Northfin versus on Northfinusa.

Yep noticed that is why price is so high. I didn't figure out if it would be cheaper for me or not since I don't need to order for a while. I usually buy several things at once so I'd have to see how the bottom line price compared.

so what are they using a preservative?
Edit: found this

Yeah, my thoughts exactly! That's too much food to use up! Hopefully smaller sizes will become available. :)
By the way, here's the response I got from Northfin, they said it was fine for me to post it:
Thank You for supporting Canadian products.
" Northfin fish food are made in our facility and we do not have or use any preservatives. We do not use any oils or fats and would be no need to ad any. Also we find our formulas stable when kept properly.
All our main ingredients are ordered fresh from Canadian factories, we do not buy or import any from offshore."

Are all the statements from Northfin true? If it is, I am sure it's a win win situation. I know Northfin is the only 6 stars food because it is "preservative free" food.

If the statements are false then Northfin has opened themselves up to being put out of business by both the Canadian and U.S. governments. So, yes, I would consider them true.

To say they are preservative free would likely be inaccurate. Some of the source materials undoubtedly contain preservatives. In a prior conversation I had with Northfin they stated that some source materials, sometimes, may contain Naturox. Naturox is "Natural Mixed Tocopherols, Silicon Dioxide, Citric Acid, Vegetable Oil, and Rosemary Extract". If you don't know what "Tocopherols" are..... it's Vitamin E. Acceptable and preferred preservatives.
