“Humic Feed-O-Fert” as water quality manager
To maintain the water quality through out the culture period now becomes a biggest challenge for commercial fish farming,
Considering pH, ammonia, nitrite, alkalinity, dissolved oxygen. Imbalance of any of these parameters trigger stress and promote toxic environment for growing fishes and shrimps; ultimately leads to lower growth rates, diseases and finally mortality. Humic Feed-O-Fert and Humifloc are complete natural product for Ecofriendly Sustainable and Profitable Aquaculture .
They are basically Bio-humus based product consist of primary nutrient ,blended with beneficial microbial consortium (group of non specific probiotics)along with several digestive enzymes like Lipase, Cellulase, Chitinase; includes Vitamins, Amino Acids from natural source only.
Pond ecosystem plays most vital role in Aquaculture. The success of culture and the quality of yield vividly depend on the quality of pond or aquatic ecosystems.
Humic Feed-O-Fert and Humifloc both products have been shown their characters by creating a healthy ecosystem suitable for growing fishes and shrimps. Two products also proved their efficacy as non specific immune booster, metabolism enhancer and Growth Promoter as feed additive.
* keeps pH in buffer state
* control ammonia and nitrite
* promote rapid
bio degradation of feed waste
* regulate biological oxygen demand
Biofloc technology (BFT) is a microorganism-based aquaculture technique that is environmentally friendly. Fish and shrimp are farmed intensively with little to no water exchange. In addition, macroaggregate (biofloc) formation requires continuous water movement across the entire water column. Nutrients in water can naturally aid in the creation and stabilisation of heterotrophic microbial communities. These microorganisms have three main functions:
(i) The uptake of nitrogen compounds, which results in the development of microbial protein, keeps water quality high.
(ii) pathogen competition; and
(iv) Lowering the feed conversion ratio (FCR) and lowering feed costs would increase culture viability.
Biofloc Technology (BFT) is considered as a new “blue revolution” since nutrients can be continuously recycled and reused in the culture medium while minimizing or eliminating water exchange. Biofloc is the aggregates of living and dead particulate organic matter, phytoplankton, bacteria, and bacteria grazers which form suspended growth in ponds/tanks. Besides that, due to a complex relationship between organic matter, physical substrate, and a wide variety of microorganisms, bioflocs is a rich protein-lipid natural source of food that is available 24 hours a day. This natural productivity is essential for nutrient recycling and water quality management. Biofloc use by shrimp or fish has shown a variety of advantages, including increased growth rate, lower FCR, and lower feed costs. As a consequence, active suspension ponds, heterotrophic ponds, and even green soup ponds are terms used to describe this system.
@Impact of Humic Feed-O-Fert and Humifloc in Aquatic Eco-system
■Keep pH in buffer zone
Buffers are solutions that contain a weak acid and its a conjugate base; as such, they can absorb excess H+ions or OH– ions, thereby maintaining an overall steady pH in the solution.
This buffer zone provides stress less condition of the aquatic environment.
■Maintain pH below 8.5
(Resist against ammonia toxicity)
Humic Feed-O-Fert and Humifloc strongly help to keep pH range between 7.5 to 8.5 . This profoundly resist ammonia toxicity.
■Nitrogen Cycle modulator
Nitrogen cycle is one of vital biochemical function needed for healthy aquatic environment.
Humic Feed-O-Fert and Humifloc promote Benifical microbes to trigger Nitrogen cycle which promotes recycle of organic waste into valuable life food web.
What Is Biofloc Technology and How Does It Work?
1.The Biofloc system is a wastewater treatment system that has become incredibly valuable in the aquaculture industry.
2. The technique’s concept is to maintain a higher C-N ratio by incorporating a carbohydrate source, and to increase water quality by producing high-quality single-cell microbial protein.
3. Heterotrophic microbial growth occurs in this scenario, which assimilates nitrogenous waste and could be used as a feed by the cultured species and also serves as a bioreactor for water quality control.
4. Since heterotrophs’ growth rate and microbial production per unit substrate are ten times greater than autotrophic nitrifying bacteria, toxic nitrogen species are immobilized more quickly in biofloc.
5. This technology is based on the principle of device flocculation.
Humic Feed-O-Fert as Aquatic Health Manager
Fish and shrimp health is one of the highest concerns in commercial aquaculture. Uncontrolled health is one of the major reason for lower growth rate and mortality. Chemical or synthetic input may control the situations temporarily but ecofriendly and natural solutions are being effective for long duration of culture.
Humic Feed-O-Fert is a vital source of natural non selective beneficial microbial force or probiotics, derived mainly from natural sources and not being cultured under Laboratory conditions.
Application of Humic Feed-O-Fert as directed by our specialists produces extremely positive results on immunity and health of shrimp and fishes.
Humic Feed-O-Fert stimulates broad spectrum immune activity, overall vitality ; and it acts against tumor cells.
Humic Feed-O-Fert on building stress resistance capacity
Humic Feed-O-Fert help to build stress resistance capacity among growing shrimp and fishes.
Humic substances based Humic Feed-O-Fert induced primary stresses helping shrimps and fishes to build stress resistant capacity rapidly against any environmental and biological changes. This particular phenomenon becomes most relevant in supply of live fishes through transport.
Great potential for enhancing nutrient assimilation
FCR or Feed Conversion Ratio of shrimp and fish in aquatic eco-system depends on several factors, like quality of feed, presence of planktonic community, enzymatic impact, health of growing organisms and aquatic environmental or other stresses on growing organisms.
Humic Feed-O-Fert has been proven to be one of vital substance simulating overall factors needed for higher rate nutrient assimilation.
• HumicFeed-O-Fert act as a regulatory factor on planktonic volume
• Enzymatic activities stimulate nutrient assimilation, specially digestive enzymes of Humic Feed-O-Fert promote faster nutrient assimilation and reduces FCR by optimum feed utilization.
