Fraser, MI (PRWEB) February 25, 2014
Imagine having the comfort of knowing the farm-raised fish you buy from the local supermarket is cleaner, healthier, and safer to eat than wild-caught fish from lakes, rivers, and oceans. Thanks to OrganicPond.com LLC, you won't have to imagine anymore-they have turned this vision into a reality. In time for this Aquaculture season OrganicPond.com announces the integration of three natural solutions to promote environmentally safe aquaculture practices.
OrganicPond.com has responded to the urgent need in the aquaculture world to develop microbial control strategies. "Disease outbreaks are significant constraints to aquaculture production and trade, and the development of antibiotic resistance has become a matter of growing concern," says Peter Kennedy, CEO of OrganicPond.com LLC. "Our team has developed a safe alternative to these processes by combining fine bubble diffusion with powerful, naturally occurring beneficial probiotic bacteria and a high surface area bacteria multiplier. These work together to cleanse water of fish waste and create a healthier, more disease-resistant environment."
"Since using the OrganicPond Liquid Blend, our FCR has improved 24%; our mortality rates have dropped 63%, and we have had a 78% reduction in ammonia spikes. It has made our Recirculating Systems much easier to manage and a lot more predictable than they were with our previous bacteria. All it takes is adding the measured amount once a week to each system to keep the water looking beautiful and the fish happy. It improves aeration efficiency by quickly breaking down the organic load in the system. Our fish handle better while harvesting and look better when they get to live markets," said Matt Godbee, Production Manager at Weissinger Lakes, Inc., a state-of-the-art aquaculture facility in Marion Junction, Alabama, specializing in Indoor Recirculating Systems, In-Pond Raceway Systems and High Tunnel Hydroponics Systems.
Pure Bacteria ABP-23T Aquaculture Blend Powder is an all-natural blend of probiotic organisms that remove or neutralize pollutants in aquaculture. This allows you to control water quality, reduce morbidity, and improve feed conversion rates. "Adding billions, even trillions of these beneficial bacteria to the water allows fish to fully absorb and benefit from their probiotic effects, as healthy bacteria spread throughout the fish gut and crowd out the ‘bad’ bacteria," says Brent Dixon, Aquaculture Specialist with OrganicPond.com. "The upshot is less frequent disease, and consequently, less need for harmful chemicals and antibiotics."
Pure Bacteria ABL Aquaculture Blend Liquid is an all-natural blend of probiotic organisms that control the level of contaminants, particularly ammonia, nitrate, and organic waste. ABL is designed to work in larvae hatchery and for Recirculating Aquaculture Systems. As with our Blend Powder, the result is that you can more easily manage water quality, decrease morbidity and improve your feed conversion rates.
Aerie Bio Media is outstanding for multiplying bacteria colonies. "We've had no ammonia spikes in the last week and pH is stabile at 7.8" says Vinicio Rosado, Owner Larvanorte SA, a highly productive shrimp hatchery in Pedernales, Provincia de Manabi- Ecuador. When deploying media, the ideal location is in water circulation patterns, increasing bacteria effectiveness by 5 times or more. Since a single layer of microbes provides 200-800 kg of microbes/m3, Aero Bio Media can reproduce 10 to 100 times more bacteria than other media. This reduces the time it takes to form colonies large enough to stabilize ammonia and lower other contaminants. "We are almost ready for harvest and our larvae are larger and healthier than the tanks without media," reports Rosado.
