Economical fish and shrimp production requires maximum nutritional efficiency from feed. Enzymes, including phytase, xylanase, cellulase, protease, lipase, and amylase increase the availability of nutrients, increase absorption of nutrients during digestion, increase fish growth rates, and assist in the survival and thriving of fish in the larval stage. Also, the use of lower cost feedstuffs is made possible for aquaculture with the use of added enzymes. Nutrients that are not digestible using the fish’s normal digestive enzymes become digestible when appropriate enzymes are added to these less expensive feedstuffs.

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.

Aquaculture is the fastest growing meat protein industry in the world. Microbial Discovery Group’s in-depth understanding of water quality, feed conversion, and disease prevention creates strong value-add partnerships.Similar to any other farming system, the aquaculture industry must confront environmental problems resulting from the industry’s intensification and commercialization. The need to produce and yield more tends to push these systems to the brink of failure. Success stems from understanding the aquaculture host, nutrition, water quality environment and the symbiotic microbial relationship of the direct fed probiotics. Microbial Discovery Group is active in solving problems facing the aquaculture industry. We can help with your water quality, FCR and overall yield needs – fast.
Drawing on our animal agriculture experience, we have a unique approach to aquaculture problems. Do you need some new ideas that work?

Industrial Plankton`s algae bioreactors produce the base of the aquatic food chain for aquaculture hatcheries, reliably, and cost effectively. The algae produced on-site is an ideal feed for larval shellfish and shrimp. Finfish hatcheries also benefit from live algae for enriching rotifers and generating live greenwater.
Using real-time monitoring, user friendly equipment, and datalogging, our equipment simplifies algae production, letting hatcheries focus on their livestock, and not their algae.

We offer a wide range of instruments for testing of ingredients and finished aquafeeds. It includes compositional analysis as well as starch gelatinization characteristics and determination of degree of cook. Aquafeed producers are faced with the difficult task of producing to the same specifications week after week, with profitability, as raw materials and their prices constantly change. The only way to succeed is to have full knowledge of your raw materials and your process. Perten Instruments offers analysis equipment for rapid testing of finished feed as well as all types of ingredients. Make the right formulations, test starch characteristics, control your drying, and make sure you meet finished feed specifications.

Intensive commercial shrimp farming began in the late 1960s led in part by technological advances and growing market demand. Today, shrimp farming is so intensive (in some cases close to 300 000 shrimps per hectare) that it requires industrially prepared shrimp feeds, fertilizing the ponds to stimulate the growth of organisms, aeration to prevent oxygen depletion and regular tidal water exchange. Solmax geomembranes have been used in some of the largest shrimp pond projects in the world. There are several key benefits of lining shrimp ponds with geomembranes. Durable and robust, the HDPE surface prevents weeds, grasses, mud and other obstructive contaminants from entering the pond. The HDPE substrate is known to reduce the suitability of the environment for bacteria thereby reducing the need for antibiotics. Geomembranes can also protect the slopes and banks from erosion and allow for easy detection and rapid removal of sediment and waste products.
Here are several factors to consider when deciding which type of geomembrane to use in a Shrimp Pond application:
- Stress crack resistance
- Tensile and elongation properties
- Tear and puncture resistance
- Duration of the project
- U.V exposure
