Case study: An Indian aquaculture company uses yucca saponin in fish and shrimp food

Fish and shrimp farming presents unique challenges, particularly in managing water quality and ensuring optimal health. High levels of ammonia in fish ponds can lead to stress, disease, and even mortality in shrimp populations. For a long time, yucca Schidigera Extract is renowned for its natural saponins and have multiple benefits for animal health. Saponins are natural glycosides that help reduce ammonia levels in livestock environments by inhibiting urease activity, thus decreasing the breakdown of urea into ammonia.

Indian is a leading producer of fish and shrimp, with an industry that demands high-quality feed additives to ensure the health and growth of shrimp populations. One of the key players in this sector is a prominent shrimp food producer Indian WATERBASE LTD. The Waterbase Ltd., established in 1993, is a fully integrated aquaculture company offering world-class products/services for shrimp culture in India. They needed a solution that WATERBASE would not only reduce ammonia levels but also support the fish and shrimp’s immune system and growth. And then they turned to Rainbow Biotech’s Yucca Schidigera liquid extract, with a specification of 30% saponins, liquid form.

Dosage and Usage:

The WATERBASE incorporated the Yucca Schidigera Extract into their feed at a dosage of 1-2 grams per kilogram of feed. This dosage was determined based on trials and recommendations, ensuring an optimal balance that would provide the desired benefits without any adverse effects. The extract was thoroughly mixed with the feed to ensure even distribution and consistent intake by the fish.

The Yucca saponin was used primarily to reduce ammonia levels in the fish ponds. By lowering ammonia concentrations, the water quality improved significantly, creating a healthier environment for the shrimp. Additionally, the saponins helped to enhance the shrimp’s immune system, making them more resilient to diseases and stress.

Effect After Use:

After several months of incorporating Yucca saponin into their feed, the WATERBASE observed remarkable improvements. The ammonia levels in the ponds dropped by an average of 40%, creating a more stable and healthier environment. This reduction in ammonia not only improved water quality but also had a positive impact on the fish and shrimp’s growth rates and overall health. The mortality rates decreased, and there was a noticeable improvement in their overall vitality. The WATERBASE  also reported fewer incidences of disease, which they attributed to the enhanced immune function provided by the saponins in the Yucca extract.

Client Testimonial:

The WATERBASE was highly satisfied with the results achieved using Rainbow Biotech’s Yucca Schidigera Extract. Here’s what they had to say:

“We have been facing challenges with ammonia control in our shrimp ponds for years. After switching to Rainbow Biotech’s Yucca Schidigera Extract, we’ve seen a dramatic improvement in water quality and shrimp health. The reduction in ammonia levels has been significant, and our shrimp are growing faster and healthier than ever before. This natural solution has exceeded our expectations and has become a crucial part of our feed formula. We highly recommend it to any aquaculture producers facing similar challenges.”

The case of WATERBASE in Indian highlights the effectiveness of our Yucca Schidigera Extract, in addressing ammonia control and improving overall shrimp health. The excellent natural additive was found observably to enhance water quality, boost shrimp growth rates, and reduce mortality and disease incidence. This success story underscores the potential of Yucca Schidigera Extract as a valuable tool for sustainable and effective fish and shrimp farming. Contact us for more information and the latest price the Yucca saponin 30% for your fish and shrimp food project!
