As demand for fish, shellfish and other aquatic organisms continues to rise, fisheries search for a cost-effective and environmentally friendly option to manage their aquaculture systems.
Aquaculture systems often struggle with the over-stocking of farms and the creation of excess waste. This population growth problem causes the animals to be stressed and more susceptible to diseases. A high concentration of waste in the water will also increase biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and drop dissolved oxygen (DO) which negatively impacts the animals.
Microcat-AL3 is a biologically active formula of bacterial strains that were chosen because of their ability to rapidly digest excess waste material in shrimp ponds.
The addition of naturally occurring and beneficial microorganisms to the water is an intelligent choice for reducing, reusing and recycling waste. Bacteria are an integral part of all aquaculture ponds and have a direct impact on its productivity, nutrients, water quality and disease control. Microcat-AL3 is a biologically active formula of bacterial strains that were chosen because of their ability to rapidly digest excess waste material in shrimp ponds. The scientifically selected, proprietary blend of cultures colonize the animal gut to aid in feed digestion and help protect shrimp and fish against pathogens.
These cultures were chosen for optimum enzyme production, assuring efficient breakdown of proteins, carbohydrates, cellulose and fats. This leads to better feed conversion and less waste material for cleaner water and higher oxygen levels. Additionally, harmful ammonia and nitrates subside for healthier aquatic animals.
