Acidifiers can be an efficient tool to achieve sustainable, economical, and safe fish and shrimp production
A number of studies, covering cold-water as well as tropical species, indicate that a broad range of organic acids, their salts or mixtures of those can improve growth, feed utilization and disease resistance in fish, according to Christian Lückstädt, R&D Coordinator, ADDCON Nordic AS, Norway.
Though there are only a limited number of published studies on the use of acidifiers for growth promotion, feed efficiency as well as mineral absorption and disease prevention in aquaculture, results from those studies indicate promising potential and compel aquafeed manufacturers to consider using acidifiers in their diets. The use of acidifiers can be an efficient tool to achieve sustainable, economical, and safe fish and shrimp production Dr. Lückstädt concluded in his article Effects of dietary acidifiers in aquaculture – a review, in the October issue of Feed Technology Update.
