Biotechnology Benefiting Aquaculture
AquaInTech, Inc., is a leader in use of microbial technology for reducing stress in farmed shrimp and fish. We offer sustainable solutions for improving water quality at all life stages. Our Bacillus products have been in use from 1980's and were the subject of the first patent granted for the use of bacterial amendments for bioaugmentation of aquaculture production ponds.
Major problem affecting shrimp and fish farmers globally is the accumulation of organic matter, a natural byproduct of the production process. Improper treatment and disposal of this material leads to many problems including runaway disease issues, excessive costs of production affecting profitability, and regional pollution that is inconsistent with sustainable production.
We offer tools for the proactive management of water quality in both high and low intensity production ponds. Our products are geared towards improving quality in production environment, reducing stress in animals while decreasing disease impacts. Our field proven tools improve productivity and reduce costs of production for fish and shrimp farmers.
Some of the many positive benefits reported by our clients by the use of our products are:
Cleaner Pond Bottoms:
Shorter time between cycles and less use of oxidizing agents (such as lime).
Improved Feed Conversions
Healthier animals waste less feed and use feed more efficiently for growth.
Less water Exchange
Farmers have been able to cut back on pumping rates and costs and in some instances completely close ponds lessening the risks of introducing problems during the production cycle from the outside.
Eliminated Use of Antibiotics
The bacteria in our products compete against many types of bacteria, some of which are implicated in disease.
Reduction of Vibrio levels
Field data shows a significant reduction in vibrio levels (depuration, shrimp ponds and hatcheries) including TCBS green vibrios such as the etiologic agent of EMS/APHNS, V.parachaemolytics
Increased Growth Rate
Healthy shrimp grow better in cleaner ponds with less organic material.
Our satisfied clients come from: Vietnam, China, Taiwan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, Belize, Venezuela, Iran, Egypt and elsewhere. Our products delivered proven results in hatcheries, large and small ponds, low and high density production systems.
