AquaInTech Inc. was founded in 1996 by Dr. Stephen G. Newman, a marine microbiologist (his thesis dealt with how Vibrio anguillarum was able to produce disease in farmed salmonids) specializing in aquatic animal health issues. Proactive management of health using science based technologies is the focus of our business. Teaching clients how to prevent problems and how to lessen the impact of problems when they occur whether in the hatchery or the farm is our goal.

NEW: Tool that impacts EMS
We recently tested an all natural form of a selected glycerol fatty acid ester that was shown some years ago to selectively kill Vibrio parahaemolyticus strains. The test results showed that the material definitely inhibited the overall growth of vibrios significantly when compared with control tanks. Top dressing the feed was enough to prevent EMS and reduce total vibrio loads in the experimental tanks significantly.
