Solutions for aquaculture

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.

Today’s aquaculture 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

AQUA-Cal+, making aquaculture more sustainable

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.
