Disease Treatments & AQUI-S® Sedation
Disease treatments in aquaculture have become a frequent and essential part of production.
In the salmon industry the frequency of treatments has increased whilst the effectiveness, in most cases, has reduced. This is leading to higher costs associated with the practice and higher mortalities.
Over the last 12 months AQUI-S New Zealand Ltd (AQNZ), together with its distributor in Norway, MSD Animal Health, have been working closely with customers to investigate the benefit of AQUI-S® sedation during conventional Sea Lice and AGD treatments in cages and well boats. Based on customer feedback AQUI-S® sedation is giving greater safety margins, improved water quality and reduced mortality.
