AQUASEA-ASW
ARTIFICIAL SEA WATER (ASW

 

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.

 How does it work?

AQUASEA reduces the problems caused by water pollution, parasites, and the presence of prawn competitors and predators in larval rearing tanks.

How to use AQUASEA-ASW?

The recommended dosage level of ACRIFLAVINE is 5-10 mg/liter (ppm) for several hours to several days for the treatment of Oodiniosis, often called "velvet or "rust" disease, because of the way the skin appears when the disease is prevalentTo achieve the recommended treatment level, a stock solution should be made and stored in an amber glass bottle.
SPECIAL NOTE: Water conditions in which there is a notably acid pH (below 7.0) will inhibit the activity of this product.
Dosage: 60 g / Acre

Where can ACRIFLAVINE be used?

IN PRAWN HATCHERIES: 1 Kg/20 L

In Culture ponds Shrimp:  20 Kg/Ha once in a month
In culture ponds of Fish: 10 Kg/Ha once in a month

Where can AQUASEA-ASW -be used?

Inland prawn hatcheries where there is no access to brackish water required for larvae.
