A successful aquaculture depends on the quality of soil, water, seed, and feed. A good quality of soil, water, seed, and feed always give a successful yield under skillful management practices. The ponds often accumulate with uneaten feed materials, excretions of culturing stocks, molted shells, dead algae and surface runoff organic matters carried by wind and water. When all these materials remain un-degraded or partly degraded in reduced oxygen condition, malodorous and toxic gases such as H2S and NH3 get developed. Toxic gases such as CH4, NO2, and others are also produced. These gases give rise to stress to the culturing stock resulting in loss of appetite, sluggishness, gasping for oxygen etc. and ultimately results in a reduction in growth and mortality. The organic matter remains settled at the bottom, making a layer of scum, which on prolonged accumulation raises the pond bottom and makes a good harbor for the pathogens to proliferate various disease. The finer organic particles remain suspended in water making turbid. These phenomenon exhibit high values of BOD and COD in the pond and very low level of dissolved oxygen.
In order to solve these problems, BioXcell has developed this product, using a consortium of naturally occurring, eco-friendly microorganisms along with Sea-weed Extract, Yucca, minerals and micro Nutrients at adequate proportions in order to perform their specific actions. The organisms are cultured and mass propagated in the highly sanitized laboratory and production units following ISO quality norms. These microorganisms utilize toxic materials for their normal function and growth. They also produce enzymes, which digest complex forms such as protein, carbohydrate, cellulose, fats etc. to simpler forms so that primary producers may readily utilize it. This product also contains nitrifying and denitrifying bacteria. Each kilogram of the product contains 20000 billion viable spores. It is a free-flowing powder, white to off white in colour.
