ANIMAL WELFARE & AQUI-S®

Consideration of animal welfare is a fundamental and growing requirement in aquaculture. There are many unavoidable activities which can cause extensive stress to aquatic animals, including disease treatment, transport, handling, broodstock stripping, grading and slaughter. AQUI-S® reduces stress during these operations, providing you with strong healthy animals that command a high price at market. Explore our WELFARE section to learn about welfare and how AQUI-S® can help reduce stress and improve quality in your operations.

Applications 

AQUI-S® is a versatile aquatic anaesthetic that can be used in a dose-dependent manner to provide light sedation suitable for disease treatments and transport, to full anaesthesia for health checks.

TRANSPORT: Managing stress during live transport will increase survival and is as easy as adding AQUI-S® to the transport water. 

Harvest
HARVEST: Muscle quality is severely impacted by activity pre-slaughter. AQUI-S® anaesthesia conserves energy and maintains quality.
