Aquaculture production and trade is being limited by disease outbreaks, nutrition and low larval survival. Microbial disease activity has increased dramatically, along with the degree of intensification in larval production in aquaculture.
The development of drug-resistant fish pathogens has been reported from all areas of aquaculture. Microbial infections in fish and crustaceans are currently treated by dissolving higher quantities of broad spectrum, chemotherapeutic agents. Most of these antibiotics and drugs are now banned for use in EU, USA and many other countries.
The NutraGreen range of products are designed to overcome these problems. These products offer alternative herbal-compound based remedies. Natural plant origin products present a viable alternative to antibiotic and other banned drugs, being safer for the reared organism and humans, as well as the environment.
