The service examines water for specific pathogens that can affect the fish’s health.
Identifying 18 shrimp pathogens with a single test, the latest edition of the testing technology redefines industry standards, giving farmers cost-effective and comprehensive protection for their animals.
Trials show a reduction in emissions of phosphorus and zinc from feces of up to 30%, while fish fed with Nutra Terra have significantly better growth and a lower feed factor.
The solution operates with an accuracy of 97% to 99% and will be integrated into vaccination machines.
