The seminar was attended by nutritionists, technicians, shrimp farmers, R&D, and others from different sectors of the aqua industry.

Arturo Solis, General Manager of Dimune, opened the event informing to the audience the strategic alliance with Adisseo Aqua to bring solutions to the shrimp and shrimp feed producers in Ecuador. Peter Coutteau, Business Unit Director Aquaculture for Adisseo, presented the global strategy of Adisseo Aqua focused on species-specific solutions and services for producers in all key markets for aquaculture. Adisseo’s global and regional technical support team for Aqua Specialties presented a number of additive strategies to optimize the profitability and sustainability of shrimp production. Presentations focused on explaining the modes of action of the different specialty additives from the programs Health, Digestion and Palatability, illustrating lab results as well as field trials under production conditions. After the seminar the attendants and the Adisseo – Dimune staffs took the opportunity to exchange experiences.

“Ecuador has become for the shrimp industry, the equivalent of what Norway is for the salmon industry. The strong consolidation of the production of shrimp and feed required a more adapted approach for sales and marketing of our specialty additives for aquaculture. With our partnership with Dimune, we are now prepared to serve this industry with a high degree of flexibility and service”, says Dr. Peter Coutteau. “Dimune is a distributor of a variety of nutrition and health products for livestock and aquaculture in Ecuador with an efficient logistic and administrative network in place since 22 years. Adisseo’s highly specialized portfolio of aquaculture additives for feedmill and farm use offers us an area for growth that fits perfectly in our company strategy of diversification. We are looking forward to offer the best technical and logistical services to our aqua customers,” according to Arturo Solis.
