Bionetix recommends probiotics for cleaner water 

June 17, 2024  By Hatchery International staff

Bionetix® International, a waste treatment company, suggests the use of probiotics for aquaculture. Probiotics are living organisms that digest waste, clean up water and promote intestinal health. This promotes better water quality and healthier species in fish farms.

Bionetix International suggests the following for probiotics for aquaculture: 

Probiotics for Fish Food: AQUA-FEED™

AQUA-FEED™ is a natural feed additive designed to promote increased weight gain for shrimp, fish, and other aquatic species. It contains beneficial microorganisms and contains key nutrients such as β-glucans, mannan-oligosaccharides, protein, fibre, minerals, vitamins, and amino acids.

Probiotics for Fish Farms: BCP54™

BCP54™ can be used for fish and shrimp farms which have a high density of aquatic species and more organic waste. Beneficial bacteria in BCP54™ consume fecal matter and nutrient pollution, improving water quality and reducing sludge and odours. The probiotic aims to prevent off-flavours and off-odours in fish or shrimp.

Probiotics for Water Clarity: AQUACLAR™ PLUS

AQUACLAR™ PLUS can clear up cloudy water. It consumes nitrogen, ammonia, and other nutrients that cause algae growth. It is reportedly easy to use and safe to handle.
