Formulation of a quality controlled “ready-to-add” IMS eliminates potential sources of error in the preparation of IMS to be added to feed. Currently, clients have to go through several measuring and mixing steps that can diminish product efficacy if done incorrectly.
Hatchery operators typically feed a variety of different larval feed brands, to which they can easily mix the Shrimp IMS Emulsion, eliminating the c
