PRO4000X A tableted blend of Bacillus spores from strains selected to degrade organic matter and metabolize ammonia. As the Bacillus grow, they impact the pond ecology and favorably alter both bacterial and algal populations.
TARGETED DELIVERY to the pond bottom directly to where the organic matter accumulates. Field proven and in use in Venezuela, Belize, Bangladesh, New Caledonia, Mexico, Taiwan, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, India, Malaysia and elsewhere. No activation required. Easy to use and highly effective tool.
AQUAPRO-B This is a “probiotic” that should be mixed with water and aerated prior to being added to the tank (activated). Use daily at 5-10 ppm prevents problems in nauplii and early zooea stages. Used throughout the production cycle the bacteria compete against vibrio bacteria in the tank to lessen problems during culture. AQPB contains much higher levels of bacteria than most competitive products. It can also be used in ponds, tropical fish tanks, etc.
AQUAPRO-F Formulated for addition to the feed, either as a top-dressing or milled directly into the feed. Contains 5 selected Bacillus strains, MOS, a potent prebiotic and/or enzymes that aid in feed digestion.
AQUAPRO-EZ AquaPro EZ is AquaPro B in a biodegradable bag (225 gm to 500 gm) for rapid delivery to the pond bottom. Each bag contains >1 trillion CFU and selected nutrients to stimulate germination of the spores. Works great in shrimp and fishponds, quiet bodies of water, such as lakes, reservoirs, canals, etc.
Custom blends of bacteria are available on request. We also private label products.
AMMEX This is a chemical that detoxifies ammonia, chlorine and chloramines. It is safe and effective for use in transporting food fish and shrimp. It comes as a powder and a bolus for direct addition to fish and shrimp transport tanks.
CHLORION This is a chemical that is used in Europe to disinfect drinking water and for the treatment of filamentous bacterial gill disease in trout and other fish species. It has also been widely used in SE Asia in shrimp hatcheries. The chemical is a “tamed” chlorine compound with a low level of toxicity and thus a high margin of safety. It can be used directly in PL tanks, as well in Artemia hatching tanks to produce vibrio free Artemia nauplii and disinfection of floors, foot baths, water, animals, etc. This material also has extensive utility in the swine, poultry and cattle sectors. Not for sale in the US.
IODOPHOR This is a 1% PVP-Iodine solution that is widely used to disinfect fish and shrimp eggs, equipment, etc. It is also used in footbaths and as a hand wash. This is a safe, non-toxic and sterile preparation of stabilized iodine. It is a liquid, available in 1 gallon jugs and 55 gallon drums.
DIETS and ADDITIVES
MEGA-X Mega-X is a natural bacterial extract from non-pathogenic environmental bacteria that when used in the hatchery can prevent bacterial disease problems and increases survivals by 1 to 8%. These diets are suitable for fish and shrimp.
We can custom formulate diets with specific nutrients, vitamins, minerals, nutraceuticals, probiotics, etc. Black Box Diets These diets encompass the entire size range required for larval shrimp from zooea to PLs ready for stocking. They can be manufactured containing a number of compounds that will allow shrimp to better tolerate stresses and resist disease. They range from under 100 microns to more than 1000 microns. Forta Flake This is a traditional high quality flake product that is formulated with additives as well that will allow shrimp to better tolerate stresses and resist disease.
KRILL MEAL This product is dried Euphausia superba, a tiny crustacean that lives in the Arctic. It is an excellent feed and is often used in feeds for its attractability. Frozen biomass available is both E. pacifica (small) and E. superba (large). KRILL MEAL CAN BE FED DIRECTLY TO HATCHERY TANKS AS A SUBSTITUTE OR PARTIAL REPLACEMENT FOR TRADITIONAL LARVAL DIETS. NEW KRILL PELLETS.
SPIRULINA This blue green algae is widely used to supplement larval shrimp diets. It can be mixed with various other feeds and used as part of a mixture or added directly to tanks to supplement traditional feeds.
ARTEMIA CYSTS This live food for larval shrimp is harvested from salt water lakes in China, Russia and the Great Salt Lake in the USA. We offer competitive prices for repackaging or direct use.
AQUAGROW DHA We sell an algal biomass that is high in DHA and that can be used in enrichments for Artemia and Rotifers or added to directly PL tanks.
FUCOIDAN This is an extract of an alga that is high in the sulfated polysaccharide, fucoidan. This material binds to enveloped viruses (like the White Spot Virus) and prevents them from being infectious. It has been found to have activity against Herpes virus, even the AIDS virus.
NUCLEOBOOST A single cell protein, very high in protein (>70%) that can be fed to shrimp either milled directly into the feed or top-dressed. It is also very high in nucleotides (8%) and has a potent immunologically active cell wall high in lipopolysaccharides. Use: Use 1 to 5 kg/MT of feed.
BETAGARD We have three different grades of beta 1-3, 1-6 glucan, ranging from the very crude to the highly purified. Our best product is an extract of brewers yeast high in beta 1-3 glucan with 1-6 branches to ensure high potency. It requires only 100 grams/MT for optimal activity. Glucans have been reported to impact the immune systems of shrimp and fish and are added to diets to increase resistance to stress and disease. Use: 100 grams to 2 kgs/MT of feed. SPLIT GILL A potent source of beta 1-3 glucans that has been field and laboratory proven. This product is equivalent to Vitastim. Use: 1kg/MT of feed.
ECOMOS This is a yeast extract that is derived from a yeast that is cultured to produce 28% Mannan Oligosaccharide (MOS). MOS are sticky compounds that have been found to bind to a number of different groups of bacteria making them pass through the animals gut without causing disease. Use: Add 1 to 2 lbs per MT of feed on a continual basis.
ARTEMIA BIOMASS Frozen Artemia biomass from China and from Mono Lake, USA.
KRILL BIOMASS Cost effective, 100% biosecure replacement for Artemia Biomass.
Frozen whole, raw or blanched krill. This is a moderate sized Euphausid shrimp that is fished from the Antarctic Ocean under an International Treaty that ensures that the resource is properly managed. It can be used instead of enriched Artemia Biomass and has the advantage of being a natural food stuff from cold Ocean waters that already contains the nutrients that must be added to enriched Artemia Biomass.
POLYCHAETES Frozen worms from China. (Not available at this time for biosecurity reasons)
FISH HYDROLYSATE Hydrolyzed wild salmon from a certified fishery. Useful as an attractant, a substitute for fish meal or simply to top dress feeds increasing palatability. We also sell a variety of other materials. Please ask.
AQUASTIM A complex mixture of organic ingredients used to fertilize ponds and improve and promote healthy microbial bacterial populations. Can be used in conjunction with Aquapro B and other products.
