A successful aquaculture depends on the quality of soil, water, seed and feeds with a skillful management practice. Ponds often get accumulated with uneaten feed materials, excretions of culturing stocks, molted shells, dead algae and surface runoff organic matter carried by wind and water. When all these materials remain undegraded 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 of 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 diseases. The finer organic particles remain suspended in water making turbid. These phenomena exhibit high values of BOD and COD in the pond and very low level of dissolved oxygen.
In order to solve these problems, the product has been developed using a consortium of naturally occurring, eco-friendly microorganisms at adequate proportions in order to perform their specific activity. The organisms are cultured and mass propagated in the highly sanitized laboratory and production units following ISO norms. These microorganisms utilize toxic materials for their normal function and growth. They also produce enzymes, which digest complex forms such as protein, carbohydrate, fats etc. to simpler forms so that primary producers may readily utilize them. Each kilogram of the product contains 3000 billion CFU of effective microorganisms.
