What is AQUASEA-ASW?
Artificial seawater (or ASW) is a mixture of dissolved mineral salts (and sometimes vitamins) that simulates seawater. Artificial seawater is primarily used in marine biology and marine aquaria, and allows the easy preparation of media appropriate for marine organisms (including algae, bacteria, plants, Shrimp, and other animals) and is more useful for Shrimp Hatcheries and Shrimp rearing ponds where brackish water becomes a problem.
Why use AQUASEA-ASW
From a scientific perspective, artificial seawater has the advantage of reproducibility over natural seawater. During shrimp larval stages the required brackish water can be given by mixing fresh water with AQUASEA-ASW. With the growing issues of commercial, residential and industrial contamination in the coastal areas, the use of AQUASEA-ASW seems befitting.
