Expert's Take

Health and Aqua Feed Analysis

Diseases are one of the major hurdles to the sustainable development of an aquaculture enterprise. Whatever their origin (feed, pathogen presence, problem with water quality, and so on), these diseases are likely to strongly impact a farm’s profitability, and may result in substantial economic losses.  The means to treat and prevent these diseases have been progressively refined as the aquaculture sector has become more structured. In terms of sustainability and marketing, new imperatives have led more and more farmers to question their strategy regarding disease prevention and treatment. Limiting the use of antibiotics or potentially toxic chemicals (formalin, malachite green, and so on) is currently among the best known ways to deal with these issues. AQUATECHNA assists farmers and feed manufacturers with their constant search for reliable and sustainable methods of efficiently preventing the emergence and spread of sanitary problems. If they are not handled in due time, these diseases are likely to impede the profitability of fish farms.
