Powerful partnerships and advanced technology in pond disease management
Aqua Pharma‘s newest developments are tailored to increase pond welfare.
Through research and collaboration, we are developing new concepts for disease management and prevention in shrimp ponds and closed aquaculture systems.
Aqua Pharma and manufacturer Solvay have developed AQUALISAN® a premium, effective and environmentally friendly product for disease outbreak control in ponds. When added to a pond, the product quickly eliminates a wide range of water borne pathogens and kills bacteria likely to cause diseases. The product is a powerful inhibitor, causing rapid oxidation of cell walls of virus, bacteria, protozoa, spores, and other harmful microbial communities, killing them off or rendering them innocuous.
While AQUALISAN® very easily mixes into pond water, it is important to use a precise dosage at a very specific moment according to the exact conditions in each pond. To ensure that farmers achieve the best possible results, Aqua Pharma’s team provides treatment advice to guide the farmers through the cycles. Our technical experience in designing and developing dosing systems for salmon farms, will be translated to a new generation of dosing units for pond applications, to further simplify the process and ensure reliable performance.
A new aquaculture venture
Every pond is unique. Timely and detailed insights into the complex life are key for defining new management strategies. By connecting these insights with AQUALISAN® and other prescriptive health management products, SEATRU™ will help farmers to drastically optimise farm yield.
Disease outbreaks can spread in less than 5 days and result in high mortality rates or total eradication of a farm. For farmers, this accounts to a complete loss of income. For the industry, this accounts to billions of dollars in lost revenue.
Farmers are currently hampered by a lack of reliable data on water quality and animal health, resulting too frequently in unpredictable disease outbreaks.
With our solutions farmers will be able to adopt a preventative management approach, to increase production, sustainability and profitability.
