SPAWNING AGENTS for finfish
In nature, reproductive development and spawning in finfish is controlled by
environmental factors such as temperature, photoperiod, nutrition, water quality, and
presence of spawning substrate. In aquaculture, it is not always possible or economically
feasible to replicate nautral conditions especially as many species are now grown some
distance from their original geographic location. Thus, endocrine or a combrination of
endocrine and environmental manupulations are utilized to facilitate reproduction. In the
last decade significant research has been conducted worldwide on ripening fish sexuality
using various preparations.

TRANQUILIZERS for aquatic animals
Eugénol-Methoxyphenol (Clove-oil) is obtained from the buds, leaves and stems of clove trees (Eugenia sp.). It is a very usefull, natural and environmental friendly tranquilizer, which can be used for various fish species. A higher tolerance against longer exposure times gives a greater security and makes the application under practice condition much more easier. Because of the low dosage (30-90 ppm) there occures also no alteration on taste of the meat of the fishes. Clove oil is more effective at reducing the short-term stress response induced by handling or manipulation, and is a recommended and widely used fish anaesthetic. Available as pure oil in vials of 10 or 100 Milliliter.

DESINFECTANTS for aquaculture
We supply various chemicals for desinfection in aquaculture and aquaria. Some chemicals are in some countries only allowed for fish which are not used for human consumption, like eggs, spawners or ornamental fish.
The following chemicals are available:
STARTERBACTERIA for recirculation systems
For the startup and stabilization of biological filters in recirculation systems, but also for biological cleaning of water in culture or garden ponds, special bacteria sets have been developed. The highly active bacteria also help to stabilize existing or old filter systems. Available as liquid product in containers of 5 l or as dry product in containers of 400 g, each reaching for up to 50 m3.
