AQUA-Cal+

AQUA-Cal+ is non-toxic, non-corrosive, safe, environmentally friendly and meets many core needs in aquaculture.

AQUA-Cal+ is made by flash calcining a mixture of magnesite and dolomite to produce a unique, very high surface area powder, and then hydrating the powder to produce a slurry for ease of application to ponds. It has been specially formulated to impact on both the aqueous and benthic ecosystems in the pond.

IMPROVED WATER QUALITY

AQUA-Cal+ works as a water and pond bottom conditioner; clarifying the water, controlling pH and releasing alkalinity as required to aid in the digestion of organic matter.

LESS STRESS ON PRAWN AND SHRIMP

With stabilised conditions in the pond, stress is reduced. When stress is reduced and water conditions are improved, both fish and prawns become healthier and more productive.

PRAWN MORTALITY REDUCED

Conditioning with AQUA-Cal+ removes the iron by flocculation from the water, the turbidity and toxicity are significantly reduced, thus decreasing the subsequent mortality of the prawns.

SLUDGE VOLUME REDUCED

As AQUA-Cal+ neutralises the pond bottom sludge and accelerates its breakdown, pond bottom septicity is prevented. AQUA-Cal+ also allows a more rapid break-down of the sludge, which helps release organic material for the growth of phytoplankton (natural food for shrimp), while binding the toxic contaminants. Subsequently, the smell of the sludge is greatly reduced, with less toxic compounds in water.

IRON SUPPRESSION

Conditioning with AQUA-Cal+ removes the iron by flocculation from the water, significantly reducing turbidity and toxicity. The stocking of the pond after the water is conditioned reduces the subsequent mortality of the post-larvae.

BETTER PERFORMANCE

Results from trials on both Pacific White Shrimp and Tiger Prawns show that AQUA-Cal+ has a superior performance to probiotics in controlling ammonia, nitrite and pond bottom sludge.

The data consistently shows AQUA-Cal+ stabilises alkalinity; suppresses extreme changes in pH; provides ingestible essential magnesium and calcium; reduces turbidity, improves light penetration; improves phytoplankton productivity; reduces toxic metals in the system (copper, zinc); and reduces ammonia and nitrite.

AQUA-Cal+ = HIGHER REVENUE

Because AQUA-Cal+ stabilises alkalinity, suppresses extreme changes in pH and provides ingestible essential magnesium and calcium, phytoplankton productivity is improved and toxic metals in the system (such as copper and zinc) along with ammonia and nitrite levels are significantly reduced.
