    Getting into the swim of things: Our EMS Toolkit for Shrimp

      With increasing food and nutritional needs on the one hand and production pressure from Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS) in shrimp on the other, there is a growing need for strategic and sustainable aquaculture production - we are here to help.

      Our solution for EMS comes with applied dosage and proven efficacy. BASF offers the EMS toolkit for shrimp: Amasil® NA + Lucantin® Pink CWD, which work better together to mitigate EMS and optimize production.

    When Lucantin® Pink CWD is used in combination with Amasil® NA, there is a synergistic effect, providing an all-around protection: Firstly, a reduction in stress factors (Vibrio spp.) in the gut from Amasil® NA, and secondly, an improvement in stress tolerance from Lucantin® Pink CWD.

    Proven results of the EMS Toolkit (Chuchird et al., 2015)
    Growth performance - Improved body weight and survival rate of post-larvae shrimp
    Survival rate - Amasil® NA alone or in combination with Lucantin® Pink CWD significantly improved the survival rate from 37% to 58%
    Microbiological parameter - Amasil® NA alone considerably reduced total bacteria and Vibrio spp. count in the gut
    Immunological parameter - Lucantin® Pink CWD significantly improved immunity against EMS causing bacteria
