Preventive additive strategies for the control of ectoparasites and secondary infections in farmed fish

10/29/2020

Ectoparasites are increasingly impacting the productivity of fish farms. The management of infestations and the control of secondary infections is crucial to limit production losses.  The dietary inclusion of health-promoting functional additives has proven to be a key element for a successful preventive strategy against parasites.

This article reports on different studies evaluating the effects of APEX® BRANCHIA, a health promoting additive based on synergistic combinations of natural components with antiparasitic, antimicrobial and immunostimulant properties. The research results support field evidence in cage-farmed marine fish, showing that selected additive strategies are capable of reducing ectoparasite prevalence and to optimize the mucus defensiveness properties against secondary bacterial infections.
