AQUA-Cal+ – Solutions for the prawn & shrimp aquaculture industryMarch 28, 2020
AQUA-Cal+ is made by ﬂash calcining a mixture of magnesite and dolomite to produce a unique, very high surface area powder, and then hydrating the powder to produce a slurry for ease of application to ponds. It has been specially formulated to impact on both the aqueous and benthic ecosystems in the pond. AQUA-Cal+ is non-toxic, non-corrosive, safe, environmentally friendly and meets many core needs in aquaculture.
Results from trials on both Paciﬁc White Shrimp and Tiger Prawns show that AQUA-Cal+ has a superior performance to probiotics in controlling ammonia, nitrite and pond bottom sludge. The data consistently shows AQUA-Cal+ stabilizes alkalinity, suppresses extreme changes in pH, provides ingestible essential magnesium and calcium, reduces turbidity, improves light penetration, improves phytoplankton productivity; reduces toxic metals in the system (copper, zinc); reduces ammonia and nitrite.
