Aquabotic is a herbal antimicrobial growth promoter and performance enhancer for fishes, prawns and shrimps. Aquqbiotic is an effective alternative to antibiotic growth promoters and brings significant improvement in aqua performance. Which acts by restricting the growth of intestinal pathogens eg. E.coli, Vibrio sp., Salmonella etc.
Aqua biotic contains natural oligosaccharides, which act as prebiotics to augment the population of beneficial microflora in the gut and to increase the growth and multiplication of helpful lactobacilli. Antibiotic growth promoters have been major components on aqua culture nutrition that help to reduce the level of pathogenic microbial population in the gut, prevent loss of dietry energy and improve production performance.
Now a days a serious problem in concern, the use of antibiotic growth promoters for aqua culture as use of any antibiotic over a period of time have the potential to create a pool of antibiotic resistant bacterial genes in the environment, allowing the pathogenic and non- pathogenic organisms to develop into supebugs causing direct or indirect human health hazards. A ban on usage of antibiotic growth promoters by marine products export development authority (MPEDA) and most of the countries importing aquaculture products has intensified the challenges of aqua farming.
Since the action of aquabiotic is structural rather than at nuclear level , it controls pathogenic organisms more efficiently without resistant development. Directly acting phytocomponents of aquabiotic are fully biodegradable are completely metabolized leaving no residues in the eco-climate.
Aquabiotic can be safely used as feed supplement to maintain optimum intake, digesion, absorption and utilization of feed in aquaculture by limiting the level of pathogenic gut organisms and to simultaneously improve growth, FCR, production performance with reduced incidence of infections and mortality.
Fishes : 1 gm / kg of feed. Prawns and shrimps : 2-3 gm / kg of feed.
