TThe demand for protein from increasing world population - has resulted in rapid growth of aquaculture. The farming of shrimp and fishes are done on a large commercial scale for this as they are cheap source of lean meat. Rapid expansion of farming of aquatic species has stimulated the intensification of production systems. With this there is increased concerns over negative environmental impacts from shrimp farm effluent and diseases outbreaks have led to the development of culture systems with minimal or zero water exchange. Generally, the aquatic species are farmed on a large pond or lake for which the maintenance is quite high. The main challenge that is faced is to protect the species form diseases and high mortality ratio. For this it requires many precautions to overcome from it.
Then Biofloc farming system comes into light which is a unique type that maintain a community of suspended microalgae, autotrophic and heterotrophic bacteria which develop in limited-exchange systems. Operating high-density shrimp culture systems with limited or no water exchange results in production of large volumes of suspended flocculated organic particles referred to as biofloc. In general, it is termed as an assemblage of living (bacteria, cyanobacteria, algae, fungi, protozoans) and non-living (detritus, uneaten feed, waste products) components that form suspended aggregates also in aquaculture systems. Bacteria typically dominate bio floc aquaculture systems, being abundant. Floc composition is determined by many factors including temperature, salinity, pH, photoperiod, vertical mixing intensity, and the type of organic carbon available for bacterial metabolism. Beyond its nutritional value, biofloc also can be managed to improve water quality in culture tanks.
Thus there we need some additives for this which helps this biofloc system. “Biofloc Pro” an essential feed additive from Anfotal Nutrition is an effective solution for this. The ingredients which are mixed in this are specially researched for biofloc farming.It consist of Bacillus Strains along with enzymes and active ingredients that supports a better biofloc farming and aid better health and growth of the aquatic species.
Some of the main benefits of BioFloc Pro are::
1) Utilizes Nitrogenous waste and organic sludge.
2) Synthesizes bioavailable protein in biofloc system.
3) Improves the quality of the water and promotes growth.
4) Helps in reducing vibrio count and pathogenic bacteria.
5) Minimizes FCR for better weight gain.
6) Helps in reducing ammonia.
7) Degrades and reduces the formation of organic sludge.
8) Effectively degrades all kind of organic waste from the pond like excess feed, faecal matter, exoskeletal moults etc.
