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 concerning vaccinations and nutrient-filled diets.
Adding more nutrients to the diet usually 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 well-rounded and efficient water disinfection solution for different stages of shrimp farming – hatcheries, nurseries, or intensive grow-out facilities. Since it is 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, a significant reduction of antibiotic use, an improved survival rate across all steps of shrimp rearing. The combination of all these advantages yields a superior end-product. ULTRAAQUA UV systems are also effective in chlorine and ozone destruction applications to prevent potential negative impacts on the cultured species.

“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.”
