Prawn & Shrimp Aquaculture

We source more marine protein from aquaculture farms than from oceans, lakes and rivers. We help farmers improve productivity and sustainability to meet the nutritional needs of a growing population.

World population is expected to grow from the present 6.8 billion people to about 9 billion by 2050. Aquaculture has become the fastest growing food-producing sector in the world, but productivity is already highly stressed by excessive fishing pressure, growing organic pollution, toxic contamination, coastal degradation and climate change.

Your challenges

As developing countries begin to adopt more sophisticated farming techniques, the downstream effects will become more pronounced. This is important across all forms of food production and, particularly, aquaculture.

Aquaculture can be an environmentally negative activity where uneaten food and waste material from the animals being farmed turns into sludge. To make this industry more sustainable, aquaculture operators need to find a way to efficiently break down these polluting sludges, as well as increase yields through lower disease and higher feed / product efficiencies.

OUR SOLUTION

Calix has developed AQUA-Cal+, a water conditioner that safety addresses disease and pollution, delivering improved feed performance and yield.

It has already begun to transform prawn and shrimp farming, as well as fin fish farming. As well as improving water conditions, it reduces stress on the animals and leads to increased harvest weight and survival rates, while reducing energy costs and protecting the environment.

The Calix difference

People, unique technology, partners, and track record

Leading edge technology

Calix core technology makes high surface area materials (with a honeycomb-like structure), giving you a price and a reactivity advantage.

Our materials are proving to have similar properties to highly active nano-materials, without the health/safety concerns and high cost, but with all the benefits.

Faster reactivity = less costs

Manufactured in Australia

Fully integrated supply chain – from mine to customer

Calix is able to offer better service, reliability and performance to its
customers because it controls the entire production process from mining
of raw materials, processing and production.

We work together in ways others don’t, considering the long-term effect of our actions, never satisfied with the status quo.

Calix has its own direct delivery, service and support capabilities and also has an established a network of local distributors and partners that can provide the best solution for your specific needs and ensure you receive excellent customer service and support, wherever you are located.
