Bicar®Z for shrimps
Thousands of shrimps!
Today we are witnessing an expansion of peneticulture, in other words shrimp farming. However, the increase in the number of shrimp in ponds leads to a rapid spread of diseases that affects the well-being and growth of the shrimp.
Why using Bicar®Z for shrimp?
Monitoring the alkalinity of the water is necessary to prevent diseases
The alkalinity of the water, i.e. its ability to neutralise acids, is very important for shrimp growth. High alkalinity can occur when there is a high density of phytoplankton. When the water has a strong alkalinity and the pH value is bigger than 8.3, the shrimp stop moulting because they lose salt excessively.
Low alkalinity can result from the influx of fresh water with low alkalinity or from the presence of molluscs, such as mussels that absorb carbonaceous salts and filter phytoplankton. If the water has low alkalinity and ph value under 7, shrimp mortality increases sharply.
Bicar®Z for shrimps helps to regulate the pH
In shrimp pond water
High pH problems are more common in closed containment ponds. It is difficult for shrimp to maintain a stable pH if the water quality is poor. Adding Bicar®Z as a buffer restores an ideal pH for the growth and good health of the shrimp.
In transport water
During transport, shrimp are transported in very confined spaces. Bicar®Z helps the shrimp to maintain their internal saline balance.
