Division Rapidly Expanding
June 11, 2009 ---- Pro-Act Biotech, a leading producer of
environmental systems for the agriculture and aquaculture
industries, has had a strong increase in demand for its treatment
products for the aquaculture industry.
Pro-Act has customized their environmental treatment technology for
the aquaculture industry, expanding into aquaculture farms across
the country, including those raising striped bass, red fish, shrimp
Pro-Act’s Aqua Treatment has many key benefits that improve the fish
quality, using a chemical-free, environmentally friendly method that
also improves the profitability of the fish farm.
Improved pond water quality
Pro-Act’s Aqua Treatment improves pond water quality and controls
ammonia, resulting in more marketable fish that is on flavor with
healthy skin. The ammonia doesn’t pass through the traditional
nitrogen cycle, so nitrites and nitrates are minimized. Malodorous
gasses are reduced.
Provides food source
Pro-Act Biotech’s microbial treatment takes a different path in its
digestion of ammonia and solids, turning them into a microbial
protein that the fish can use as food. It’s a high-quality,
all-natural food source created without chemicals.
Customers report that they have little or no problems with typical
farmed fish diseases such as brown lung which results from excess
Improved skin health
The skin of the fish becomes smoother than normal and slime is
reduced or eliminated, making harvest time easier.
Better quality fish
Of course, the final goal of any aquaculture farm is to have
high-quality fish to send to market. Customers report that the fish
prosper in the improved water quality, resulting in larger fish and,
most-importantly, the meat that is on-flavor.
Reduced sludge at the bottom of the pond
Pro-Act’s treatment also goes to work liquefying the nutrients and
other debris in the form of sludge at the bottom of the ponds. This
cleaning process further improves the water quality and reduces
Examples of Pro-Act treated fish farms
Shrimp farm in Maine
• The original solids filters and floating bed biofilters have been
• The ammonia level has been kept to non-detect with our product.
• Solids have been converted to microbial proteins that the shrimp
can use for food.
• Farm was able to switch to a lower protein feed, reducing costs.
We have helped this farm cut operating costs and decrease spending
on equipment to expand the grow-out area.
Catfish farm in Mississippi
• After a few months of treatment, the water quality improved, and
the fish thrived.
• Use less feed since the water treatment creates a healthy food
• No longer have to run aerators as much since the pond’s oxygen
level is higher. Save about 40% on their electric bill.
• No longer need to use chemicals to control algae.
