Let your shrimp grow faster naturally
Aquaculture faces diverse challenges such as environmental conditions, proper diet formulation and pathogens, which in turn will affect welfare and health of fish & shrimp deriving in reduced growth performance, lower feed efficiency and reduced survival. So, how to let your shrimp grow faster naturally?
Phytogenic feed additives (PFA), thanks to their wide variety of mode of actions (MoA) can help to cope with those challenges and boost growth performance by strengthening mucosal barriers, improving nutrient update and reduce pathogen outbreaks.
Whileleg shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) is one of the most produced aquaculture species in the globe, so optimizing growth performance and feed efficiency is key for the good development of the sector and this can be achieved with the use of PFA in their diets.
