Adisseo promoting novel health strategies for disease prevention in aquaculture


Adisseo promoting novel health strategies for disease prevention in aquaculture during three upcoming events in Asia (DAA – VICTAM – TARS 2022).


Outbreaks of infectious diseases have notably intensified in aquaculture globally. This situation has coincided with the increase in the intensification of production systems, the need to use more sustainable diets, and the importance of reducing the use of veterinary medicines (especially antimicrobial drugs).

A “preventive and integrated” approach, joining efforts to act on the three agents of the ecological triad: host (fish/shrimp), environment and infectious pathogen, can effectively reduce the impact of infectious diseases. Health promoting additives are a cost-effective tool within this “preventive and integrated” to maintain a high health status of the stock and support productivity and profitability.

Dr Ruth Garcia Gomez, Adisseo’s BDM Aquatic Health and Farm Care products for APAC/ISC, will share her insights during three upcoming events in Asia Pacific during Aug – Oct 2022.

On August 23-26th, the 11th Symposium on Diseases in Asian Aquaculture (DAA) 2022 was held virtually. The purpose of this 11th edition was to present current status and future trends in aquatic health management and aquatic diseases in Asian Aquaculture. Dr Ruth presented “Phytobiotic-based additive for consistently improved gut integrity and health across species” on Thursday 25th of August at 11.45am Malaysia time.

On September 7th, the Aquafeed Conference – Towards Sustainable Aquafeed, under the auspices of VICTAM Asia 2022, will take place in Bangkok, Thailand. The purpose of this edition of the Aquafeed Conference is to present current trends and major challenges towards aquaculture sustainability and production efficiency. Dr Ruth will present on “Preventive feed additive strategies to reduce the impact of co-infections in the production of tilapia and shrimp”, on Wednesday the 7th of September at 13:30h Thailand time.

On October 7th, the Aquaculture Roundtable Series (TARS) 2022 “A shared vision for Aquaculture in Asia” will take place in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam. The theme of this edition is “Aquafeeds: a new equilibrium”. The purpose of this edition is to share key information among the aquafeed industry and other stakeholders regarding current aquafeed opportunities and challenges, by looking into a new equilibrium with feed costs and feed efficiency. Dr Ruth will present “New research on active components to mitigate aquatic diseases: what are the cost implications for the farmer and what will the incentives be for feed millers to change?” on Wednesday, the 7th of October, at 14:30h Vietnam time.
