Aqua Culture systems depend on the Dissolved Oxygen for the growth of the farmed Aqua product, such as shrimp. Shrimp and other Aqua Farming Products produce waste. The waste and over feed are digested by the bacteria normally indigenous to the pond. The bacteria compete with Aqua Culture for the Dissolved Oxygen (DO). The need for DO requires a very strong aeration system.
Dosing with EcolStim allow the bacteria to use the oxygen from the EcolStim to keep the pond clean of waste and providing a healthy environment for the growth of the Aqua Culture products.
Allowing the bacteria a source of oxygen and therefore the DO is more available for the Aqua Products.
Dosing the pond with EcolStim at a rate of about forty (40 or more) pounds of EcolStim Per Million (PPM) of water daily, supplies the bacteria with the oxygen they require to function and allow the Dissolved Oxygen to be used by the Aqua Culture.
The Biological Oxygen Demand normal to an Aqua Culture pond allows for the light dosage as compared to sewage and other waste that is treated with our EcolStim.
The dose rate of 40 pounds is only a suggested starting dosage. The dosage should be evaluated and increased or decreased as necessary. Some of the factors effecting the dosing are,
Density of the Aqua Culture
Type of the Aqua product
Type of feed and the over feed amount
The parameters of the pond water
Temperature and type of Agitation
