New Products

Borregaard targets the shrimp market

Wednesday, November 20, 2019

Borregaard LignoTech has developed a new sustainable product for the shrimp industry. SoftAcid Aqua Deca has a bactericidal and bacteriostatic effect on Vibrio bacteria and can be used both in the water treatment applications (shrimp nursery, algae growth management, cleaning, etc) and for shrimp feed preservation. When added to the feed, the product reduces microbial contamination and inhibits communication between the surviving bacteria.

Tom Stylo, business director feed additives at Borregaard, said that “in many countries, shrimp aquaculture production is depressed by disease, particularly caused by Vibrio bacteria. SoftAcid Aqua Deca can be an efficient, sustainable and unique solution to this problem. The product not only inhibits bacterial growth and biofilm formation, it can also be used in all phases of the shrimp production, from algae to the growing phase.”

SoftAcid Aqua Deca will be officially launched worldwide in December 2019.
