AquaStar®

Naturally ahead in aquaculture!

AquaStar® is the multi-strain probiotic product line of BIOMIN specifically designed for aquatic species. The AquaStar® product line consists of several carefully selected bacterial strains with superior probiotic and biodegrading features.

Purpose

Fish pathogens and challenging pond conditions in shrimp and fish farming are common problems. Unfavorable conditions affect growth and can result in mortalities and losses to the farmer. There is a need for safe and sustainable solutions that help achieve a steady production of aquatic animals. The complexity of the aquatic rearing environment calls for a strategy based on a sound understanding of all levels of interactions in the pond.

AquaStar® stabilizes water quality, improves pond bottom quality and supports the gut health of fish and shrimp, thereby improving performance and efficiency in production.
