Aquaculture ponds need to have a good water quality. It is recommended that transparency should be 30 cm. If turbidity increases, it hampers in light penetration and decreases production. The turbid water contains many suspended organic matter along with minerals. When organic suspensions get decayed, it produce toxic and malodorous gases such as NH3, H2S, CH4 etc. The colour of water also changes and causes anoxic condition in the water with very high values of BOD and COD, making the culture animals highly stressed. The culture animals start surfacing, gasping for air, become lethargic, stop feeding and finally die. These unhealthy conditions of water serve as a good harboring place for pathogenic microorganisms, causing various diseases.
The product contains six species of Bacillus in spore form and one strain of fungus. The microorganisms have long self-life up to five years. They produce various enzymes such as pectinase, protease, amylase, alpha and beta galactosydase, lipase, xylanase, cellulase etc., which degrade organic matter into simpler forms, which may be easily utilized by the primary producers resulting to clear water free from toxic materials.
DIRECTION OF APPLICATION:
Mix the product with water of the same pond and spread on the pond surface. Put on the aerator of the pond for some time for proper mixing and distribution of the microorganisms in the pond water.
1 Kg per acre metre of pond and subsequent application of 500 g at an interval of 15 days. Application of probiotic may be stopped before 15 days of harvesting. Dosage of application may also be adjusted as instructed by aquaculture consultants.
It keeps the pond water clear, by reducing excess suspended organic matter.
It keeps the water free from toxic materials and gases.
It optimises the dissolved oxygen level.
Brings down BOD and COD.
Keeps off malodor.
Eliminates pathogenic microorganisms.
STORAGE: Store in a cool dry place.
