Shrimp farming continues to suffer important economic losses due to the impact of diseases. Acute hepatopancreatic necrosis disease (AHPND), caused by specific strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus, is well spread in Asia and Latin America.
*Organic acids are characterized by their capacity to inhibit bacterial growth and their preventive application in shrimp feed is a well-known strategy to reduce the severity of vibriosis.
Bacti-nil® Aqua is a synergistic blend of organic acids, specifically formulated for aquatic species, which has proven to improve resilience of fish and shrimp against a range of bacterial diseases.
This article demonstrates the efficacy of Bacti-nil® Aqua as an efficient tool to reduce the severity of AHPND infection and subsequent hepatopancreatic damage and mortality.
