AQUA-Cal+™ is now being used in factory shrimp farms in Northern China

Feeding the Growing Human Population

John Knight \ December 24, 2018

China, with one-fifth of the world’s population, accounts for two-thirds of the world’s reported aquaculture production.

China is one of the biggest markets in the world for shrimp with about one million metric tons grown per year. With a temperate climate and rather cold winters, Northern China cannot grow shrimp all year round as is the case in Southeast Asia.

Rising domestic demand for shrimp means factory farms must focus on increasing its yields and overall productivity. With intensive aquaculture shrimp farming comes large amounts of toxic sludge and chemical complexes like nitrite, that can be harmful to both shrimp and human health.

 

OUR SOLUTION

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.
