Nutriad/Adisseo invited to aquaculture seminar in Vietnam
Nutriad was invited to the yearly aquaculture seminar organised by GreenVet Joint Stock Company, North partner for aquaculture products of Nutriad in Vietnam.
Welcomed by Mr. Huy Tran Quang, Director of GreenVet Ltd and Mr. Duc Minh Truong, Vice Director of Tan Sao A. Ltd, the seminar continued with Allen Wu, Regional Manager Aquaculture for APAC - Nutriad/Adisseo, presenting on "A New Era of Nutriad Aquaculture".
Since shrimp farmers stock higher densities in North Vietnam, farmers showed more interested in the company's proposed strategies to improve disease management in shrimp nursery systems and grow-out ponds. Nutriad shared their experiences of commercial trials on how to manage White Faeces Syndrome (WFS) in shrimp in Malaysia and Indonesia. WFS continues to be a main threat in Southeast Asia, particularly Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and India. The exact cause of the disease remains unclear although pathogenic bacteria and microsporidians are often associated with its symptoms.
Nutriad recently obtained promising results via the application of its health range of specialty additives in farms affected by WFS. "We observe shrimp farmers has started to not just buy a health-care product but would like to choose high-quality aqua products which really benefit their production," said Mr. Huy.
Shrimp farm customers in Vietnam have been used to apply Nutriad's specialty products for aquaculture health for many years and are satisfied with the results in most of the major culture areas in South to Central Vietnam. "Thanks to GreenVet, this is our first time presenting at our partner's aqua technical seminar in North Vietnam. We believe we will do more in coming years," said Wu.
