microalgae target application
green water technique
microalgae as a one to one alternative for of live algae.
Green water is a technology commonly used in aquaculture. The benefits have been shown for several (marine) fish species, molluscs and crustaceans. The method consists of adding algae in the water during larvae culture.
Several hypotheses exist to explain the beneficial effects green water: a direct food source through active uptake, stimulation of the non-specific immune system in the larvae, action as a probiotic, increase in contrast to reveal preys, microbial control by algal exudates in tank water and/or larval gut, …
Proviron’s Prime freeze dried microalgae provide a one to one replacement of live algae for your larval fish and shrimp at equal performance (survival rate, growth, rejections, …) .
benefits of using freeze dried algae
Single Cell dispersion
Retains the characteristic buoyancy of live algae
Remains in the water column for extended periods
No fouling of your tanks
single cell dispersion
Provirons microalgae readily and absolutely disperses into single cells without leaking its content. As a result it retains the characteristic buoyancy of live algae and remains in the water column for very long periods without fouling your tanks.
