INVE Aquaculture releases enhanced shrimp probiotic
Bringing its ‘Care for Growth’ philosophy into practice, INVE Aquaculture – part of Benchmark since 2015 – has developed a new probiotic in close collaboration with the industry.
Increased activity and efficiency
INVE Aquaculture’s Sanolife range is widely appreciated for offering the industry’s most concentrated probiotics at the lowest application cost and the company’s innovation team has now identified ways to improve the activity and efficiency of the Sanolife strains of Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus licheniformis and Bacillus pumilus. These strains were selected for their ability to inhibit pathogens, be metabolically active in the shrimp gut and in the pond, and improve feed digestibility. The Bacillus strains were deposited in the Belgian LMG Culture Collection, which guarantees the unique composition, quality, performance and consistency of the product.
The remarkably high Bacillus spore count (20 billion viable spores per g) grants Sanolife PRO-2 the highest number of viable active Bacillus per USD invested.
Developed with farmers
INVE has developed this new probiotic in close collaboration with the industry. Feedback was gathered from farmers worldwide to match the new product to their challenges. Rearing trials and AHPND (EMS) challenge tests were conducted in Asia and Latin America, reliably demonstrating the ability of Sanolife PRO-2 to increase growth rate and survival while reducing feed conversion ratio (FCR). The use of the enhanced Sanolife PRO-2 probiotic promises to lead to better profitability in shrimp farming, thus supporting INVE Aquaculture’s mission to support healthy business growth in aquaculture.
Considering the renewed Vibrio challenges and white faeces syndrome, this product gives farmers a powerful tool for holistic risk management in their operation.
New packaging and protocols
The release of Sanolife PRO-2 coincides with the rebranding of INVE Aquaculture’s packaging labels, which will be introduced to the market in September. The product will also be integrated into renewed expert rearing protocols for different culture conditions – from semi-intensive to super-intensive shrimp farming. INVE Aquaculture’s local technical support teams will assist their customers to effectively benefit from its performance advantages.
