The shrimp farming industry experienced exponential growth in the past few decades. Especially in regions with the ideal conditions for the Penaeus Monodon (Giant tiger prawn) and Litopenaeus Vannamei (whiteleg shrimp) rearing – warm and saline water environments. The increasing demand and production volumes have also led to increased stocking densities and growth in fatal diseases due to the lack of effectiveness of vaccinations and nutrient-filled diets.
Usually adding more nutrients only creates grounds for further contamination. All of this leads to the conclusion that the most successful disease control method is ensuring water biosecurity used in the production process. Notably for the hatcheries and nurseries as proper rearing of post-larval and juvenile shrimp leads to a more resilient grow-out stage and higher shrimp survival rates further down the line.
ULTRAAQUA UV systems are the well-rounded and efficient water disinfection solution for different stages of shrimp farming – hatcheries, nurseries, or intensive grow-out facilities. Being a physical process rather than chemical, it does not create reactive residues and does not alter water properties while efficiently inactivating all common shrimp diseases such as White Spot Syndrome (WSSV), Vibrio, EMS, and Mortality Syndrome (EHP).
ULTRAAQUA UV is the only UV manufacturer that has specifically designed a UV system series for the shrimp industry made of non-corrosive polypropylene material which is known for its longevity properties in saltwater environments. Ideal for intake, process, and discharge water, ULTRAAQUA UV systems have also led the shrimp farmers to experience better feed conversion ratios, significantly reduce antibiotic use, improve survival rates across all steps of shrimp rearing, and because of all these combined – superior yields of high end-product. ULTRAAQUA UV systems are also effective in chlorine and ozone destruction applications to prevent potential negative impacts on the cultured species.

ULTRAAQUA UV is the only UV manufacturer offering a variety of UV solutions for the shrimp rearing industry that helps to enhance the production process and capacity of intensive shrimp farming. Equipped with a wide non-corrosive product portfolio to combat saline environments, ULTRAAQUA UV helps to deliver high-quality shrimp yields and a much faster return of investment by the reduced mortality.
ULTRAAQUA UV systems provide advanced disease control for all shrimp types used for human consumption. Whether it is intake or pond water, ULTRAAQUA UV systems have proven to significantly reduce mortality rates, increase overall FCR (Food Conversion Ratio), reduce the use of antibiotics, and help produce larger disease-free crops.
ULTRAAQUA UV systems made from non-corrosive UV-stabilized polypropylene (PP) material has proven to be an excellent solution to withstand the harsh saline environments found in shrimp rearing. Moreover, PP has also extremely resilient to temperature fluctuations, various chemicals, and various levels of salinity.
THE LOWEST ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT AVAILABLE
ULTRAAQUA UV systems are the only cost-effective disease control solution that does not involve chemicals or potentially chemical residues. ULTRAAQUA UV systems are a proven solution for intensive shrimp farms to comply with the bacterial outlet regulations when discharging the water from the ponds back to the environment.
One of the reasons we chose ULTRAAQUA UV is because we had a pleasant conversation at AquaNor in Trondheim. They are easy to reach in case of questions and the prices were competitive. The required level of biosecurity determines the need for a certain lamp output and ULTRAAQUA UV has done a great job in assisting with this by showing literature that explains the needed dosage to kill a certain disease vector.
