INVE Aquaculture introduces new plant-based shrimp hatchery product 

 

 

 

INVE Aquaculture has unveiled its latest product, a plant-based water conditioner that protects shrimp larvae and post-larvae against stress and health threats.

 

Sanocare® FIT is a phytochemical mixture that has been engineered to enhance (post)-larval robustness during culture, and to suppress vibrio levels during transportation of post-larvae from the hatchery to the nursery or farm.

 

As health booster during the hatchery cycle, Sanocare® FIT stimulates the production of heat shock proteins in L. vannamei larvae and post-larvae, INVE Aquaculture said. These proteins act as a first line of defense mechanism and constitute one of the most important survival strategies of cold-blooded animals when they are exposed to abiotic stress and pathogenic micro-organisms.

 

INVE Aquaculture believes that (post-)larval quality and robustness lie at the core of successful shrimp hatcheries worldwide.

 

It added that during extensive stress tests, considerably higher survival of L. vannamei post-larvae was observed when using Sanocare® FIT during the culture.

 

"The application of Sanocare® FIT during hatchery trials at Fitmar (Mexico) resulted in remarkably higher survival and growth at the end of the grow-out cycle. This first experience convinces me to incorporate Sanocare® FIT in Fitmar's standard hatchery protocol", said Fernando Marino Pinzón Miranda of Fitmar Proveedora de Larvas, SA De CV - Mexico.

 

As vibrio suppressor during transportation, application of Sanocare® FIT in the transportation water notably controls the vibrio load in the water and in L. vannamei post-larvae. The use of Sanocare® FIT during transport results in a 100-time lower V. parahaemolyticus count in shrimp post-larvae as compared with transport without Sanocare® FIT.

 

"The application of Sanocare® FIT during transport prevents vibrio-induced stress in shrimp post-larvae and thus gives them the best start upon stocking in the ponds for further growth", said Eddy Naessens, INVE Aquaculture's product manager of shrimp hatcheries.

 

Sanocare® FIT can be used directly in the culture water during the hatchery cycle of shrimp, thereby increasing the robustness of the animals. Furthermore, Sanocare® FIT can be added directly to the transportation water to suppress the vibrio levels during transfer of post-larvae from the hatchery to the nursery or farm.

 

The product is currently available in Mexico and Thailand.
