Multinational aqua additives specialist Nutriad participated in the yearly aquaculture seminar organized by its Vietnamese distribution partner Tan Sao. This year’s seminar was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The event addressed challenges for farmers on health and nutrition, providing them practical solutions with a proven track record across the region.
Alexander Van Halteren, Business Development Manager Aquaculture Nutrition, presented a talk on Functional Feed Additives Improving Disease Resistance and Growth Performances in Shrimp. Shrimp farmers showed great interest in the proposed strategies to improve disease management in shrimp nursery systems and grow-out ponds.
Ho Gim Chong, Commercial & Technical manager Aquaculture, South-East Asia, shared farm trial results on managing White Feces Syndrome of Shrimp in Malaysia and Indonesia. White feces syndrome (WFS) continues to be a main threat in SE Asia, particularly Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand and India. The exact cause of this disease remains unclear although pathogenic bacteria and microsporidians are often associated with its symptoms.
Nutriad has recently obtained promising results via the application of its health range of specialty additives in farms affected by WFS.
Alan Wu, Regional Manager Aquaculture APAC, said, “Nutriad has been working with shrimp farm customers in Vietnam for many years, achieving excellent results and performances. We are committed to continue to innovate our product portfolio to adapt to the new challenges and emerging diseases.”
