Market-driven Solutions

Aquaculture growth drastically outpaces all other forms of food production globally, and projections indicate that seafood demand will only continue to rise. Bioaugmentation—the addition of pre-grown microbial cultures to existing microbial populations—provides an efficient and sustainable alternative to the detrimental chemicals and antibiotics traditionally used in the industry. EnviroZyme’s specialized microbial solutions and application expertise help aquafarmers quickly increase production by improving water quality and cultivated species’ health.

  • Biodegradation
  • Immunity boosting due to stress reduction
  • Nutrient cycling
  • Water clarification
  • Sludge reduction
  • BOD and COD reduction
  • Ammonia reduction
  • Competitive Exclusion
  • Effluent quality improvement

Efficacy

Because bacteria consume oxygen when respirating, microbial activity can be assessed by measuring dissolved oxygen levels in non-aerated conditions; this is known as respirometry. A faster decrease in oxygen indicates higher levels of activity.



Aquaculture Dissolved Oxygen

As indicated by the chart below, when native microbes are fortified with EnviroZyme’s pre-grown cultures, the comparatively steeper reduction of dissolved oxygen indicates a more active biological population, one with increased enzyme production, organic consumption, and reproduction. Elevated activity of beneficial microbes correlates directly to improvements in water quality and reduction of pathogen loads and mortality.

Contract Fermentation

Fermentation

Bioaugmentation is most successful with careful selection of bacterial strains that are optimal for the characteristics of individual aquaculture environments. Through analyses of physiological conditionals and strain-by-strain performance comparisons, EnviroZyme custom ferments and blends microbial solutions specifically formulated to help our customers meet their aquaculture goals.
