Good pond management is key for profitable production. Kemin has developed its expertise to provide on-farm environmental solutions for both water and soil to overcome a number of hurdles and optimize the growth, performance and survival of aqua species.
Many factors contribute to the water and soil quality of fish and shrimp farms, including increased ammonia and nitrates, increased Vibrio load, mortality and decreased performance, settlement of uneaten feed, formation of sludge and more.
Accumulation of ammonia in pond water increases fish and shrimps’ susceptibility to disease and can be toxic for both. Kemin offers a natural, biodegradable ammonia binder containing active ingredients capable of inhibiting enzyme urease and regulating the ammonia levels in pond water.
Pond water can have a direct effect on the wellbeing of aquaculture species, ultimately leading to stress and disease.
