Effective integration.

Most integrated aquaculture businesses place the greatest emphasis on the largest components, processing plants and feed mills. Hatchery and farming are often considered services that support the core production effort.

However, the quality of broodstock and the resulting postlarvae stocked in ponds strongly influences the performance of the entire production chain. iAqua therefore offers management services that include all facets of the production process.

Hatchery Management

The hatchery is the critical bridge between shrimp broodstock and the farm. Healthy, high-quality postlarvae produced by well-designed and effectively managed hatcheries consistently deliver improved performance and higher yields.

iAqua takes a system-based approach to on-site hatchery management by considering facility design, planning and operation. Since many diseases can be introduced at the hatchery level, biosecurity is essential. Proper feeding influences the size and performance of the postlarvae. Regular testing monitors and assesses the health of the shrimp.

Farm Management

Many factors combine to define farm performance, from initial design and construction to day-to-day procedures and long-term goals. iAqua farm management therefore encompasses a suite of interrelated services.

We review farm infrastructure and methods, examine animal health and evaluate feeding practices. We indentify problem areas and employ practical solutions. iAqua works to improve the quality of the final product, as well. New technologies are implemented where appropriate to maximize results.

Feed Formulation

The aquafeed industry continues to evolve with new ingredients, advancing processes and growing expectations. Feed manufactures must continually adapt to provide feed products that perform well under wide-ranging conditions.

iAqua assists feed manufacturers in evaluating the nutritional content and performance of existing diets and can help develop new feeds for specialized applications. By taking a broad, production-oriented approach that considers cost as well as digestibility, palatability and composition, iAqua delivers value for its clients. Testing facilities validate performance before large-scale manufacture begins.
