April 12, 2023  By Hatchery International staff

BioMar announced it is expanding its feed offering with a new product category, a bioremediation solution, to ensure optimal environmental conditions for shrimp from hatchery to grow-out. 

“Shrimp health and welfare start with the ideal environment for the shrimp to thrive in. These conditions will aid in better survival rates and higher performance,” said Henrik Aarestrup, VP LATAM, Shrimp & Hatchery, BioMar Group at the launch of SmartCare Balance in Ecuador. 

SmartCare Balance brings targeted solutions for shrimp hatcheries, adding to the hatchery feed range LARVIVA; and for grow-out ponds. This is a natural extension to BioMar’s SmartCare preventive health program.

“Since we entered Ecuador in 2017, we have been building our market position, and with LARVIVA, we have achieved market leadership in the hatchery segment, helping customers reduce their hatchery cycle from 21 to 15 days. In addition, we have a strong local presence and a team of experts supporting our customers. It was clear to us that Ecuador was the ideal location to first introduce our new products before expanding to other markets,” said Henrik Aarestrup. 

SmartCare Balance are probiotic mixes produced in BioMar France. The products are expected soon to be available in the rest of Latin America, where BioMar operates and selected Asian countries.
