Intensive use of extractive fishing is threatening important species and forces governments to impose temporary stoppages whilst the profitability of fishing fleets is decreasing and ship-owners are seeing their livelihoods threatened.
As a result of this and in order to satisfy the continually growing demand for fish to feed the world’s population, it has been necessary to breed different types of fish, crustaceans and molluscs in fish farms.
Fish larvae feed on multicellular microorganisms -Rotifera and Artemia-, which in turn require a balanced and natural feeding on microalgae. This is the only way to achieve healthy farmed fish which compare favourably with those found in the wild.

Monitor your Algae Quickly and Easily with FlowCam®. Different applications require the extraction of different types of biomass from the algae stock, such as lipids, oils, pigments, and proteins. Depending on the application, different species of algae are found that optimize the yield of the specific biomass desired. Once the desired feedstock is found, high capacity production methods are used to produce harvestable amounts of algae stock for the application. These may be monocultures or mixes of several different species.

BIOAQUA is a microbiological product base on a mixture of selectively adapted bacteria, which accelerates the decomposition of organic matter, the degradation of wastes, consumes excessive nutrients and sediments at the bottom of lakes. BIOAQUA prevents and controls excess algae or an algae bloom at Municipal lakes or public fountains. BIOAQUA acts as a highly efficient probiotic that competes with a wide range of aquatic pathogenic and diseases. BIOAQUA prevents and diminishes the eutrophication effect by competing, for food, with algae that receive nutrition form fish waste, over feeding fish, decaying organic matter (leaves & plants), lawn fertilizers.

Horticultural and greenhouse operations are facing increasing challenges in dealing with sanitation issues related to water treatment. Over the course of growing a crop, pathogenic microorganisms accumulate and algae flourish on moist surfaces posing a constant threat to plants and produce. The main challenges lie the areas of irrigation water, elimination of biofilm and algae control. Existing biocidal products, while effective in killing algae, are not effective in removing biofilm from the water lines. The ultimate solution would be to employ a biocide that is capable to control algae on greenhouse surfaces and strip the biofilm in irrigation lines. Chlorine dioxide has demonstrated to possess both properties.
