AQUA TECHNA and the TECHNA Group

AQUA TECHNAThe TECHNA Group’s experts have been exercising their craft in the field of land animal nutrition since 1964. Upon founding AQUA TECHNA in 2004, the TECHNA Group tried their hand at something new by aiming to provide practical, innovative and reliable solutions to actors in the aquatic production sector.

AQUA TECHNA’s task has consisted in blending the TECHNA Group’s expertise in animal production, nutrition, and feed formulation, with the skills of aquaculture experts to address the technical, economic and environmental issues of aquaculture.

 

Objectives

AQUA TECHNA main office"Allowing players in the aquaculture industry to improve their competitiveness" is AQUA TECHNA’s foremost vocation. The TECHNA Group’s subsidiary provides feed manufacturers, as well as fish and shrimp breeders, with customized product and services solutions. Their goals are to optimize aquatic animals’ nutrition, to improve their productivity, to reduce their mortality and to sustain the natural production of ponds.

AQUA TECHNA has honed its approaches around many areas of already proven expertise: knowledge of raw materials, matrix expertise, assessment of animals’ needs, formulation of fish and shrimp feed, manufacturing follow-up, raw materials and feed quality control plans, monitoring of performances, evolution of technology and farming conditions.

 

AQUA TECHNA production siteThe formulation and optimization of aquaculture feed requires hands-on and genuine know-how. Through field experience, academic partnerships and bibliographic research, AQUA TECHNA has managed to define nutritional norms for each aquaculture species: proportion of proteins, essential amino acids, fatty acids, complex carbohydrates, digestible energy. For each of these specifications constraints such as appearance, feed particule size, buoyancy, stability, altered vitamins are considered, allowing for optimal processing and stability of feed.

 

AQUA TECHNA‘s challenge lies in meeting both the technical and economic constraints of feed manufacturers and farmers while respecting the environment.This scheme centers on four key-areas:

  • Improvement of feed digestibility,
  • Optimized growth and performance,
  • Management of sanitary risks,
  • Control of mycotoxins.
