Ammonil is a natural animal feed supplement to effectively control the production and emission of ammonia and other noxious gases in fish, prawns, shrimps and other aqua species. Ammonia is a gas, which is very harmfull in aqua culture. Ammonia in gaseous form is primarily released from the gills of fish, prawns and shrimps as a metabolic waste from protein breakdown and from the lesser secondary sources such as decomposition of un-eaten feed and organic waste by bacterial actions. Ammonia is extremely toxic and its toxicity is occoured mainly due to its un-ionized form. Ammonia enters to the blood stream as a result of nitrogen metabolism containing high levels of ammonia which can cause both immediate and long term gill damages. Ammonia concentration is increased because of reduced algal population in the pond and due to reduced rate of assimilation of ammonia by plankton algae.High aquatic pH also severely account for the enhanced aqua concentration of ammonia.
.Due to the negative effect of ammonia fish usually become sluggish, often remain at the water surface as if gasping for air. Very serious effect of un-ionized ammonia are capable of killing fish over a few days starting at about 0.6 ppm. Chronic exposure to toxic
ammonia levels as low as 0.06 ppm can cause kidney damage, reduction in growth, brain malfunctioning and reduction in oxygen carrying capacity of fish. Since aquatic animals perform all their bodily functions in water, good water quality in aquaculture system should essentially be maintained, mainly in reference to ammonia concentration.
Shrimps, prawns and cat-fish : 1-2 gm / kg
Catla, rohu, mrigal and other fish : of feed
Ammonill should be mixed with sufficient quantity of fresh water to make a paste which should then be thoroughly mixed with the feed. After drying the same may be broadcasted or administered as per practice at the fish / Aqua farm. To be giving regularly or as advised by the aquaculture consultant.
