Environmental and economical factors such as disease outbreaks and low market prices challenge sustainability of shrimp industry growth. For you to succeed, you must ensure your shrimp have the resilience necessary to contend with viruses and bacteria, while producing a sustainable and safe product for market. Research shows that trace minerals are an effective and efficient way of achieving this.
At the end of the day, ensuring the maximum outputs for your input is what drives profitability. When feed accounts for over 50% of production costs, utilizing solutions like Zinpro® Performance Minerals® that are research-proven to improve feed conversion is absolutely essential.
Preventative vaccination is impossible for shrimp because as invertebrates they lack the ability to acquire immunity. Instead, they must rely on their innate immune response when challenged by pathogens. Trace minerals play a critical, yet often underrated role in giving shrimp the support they need to resist illness — positively impacting key health biomarkers and reducing mortality rates in challenge trials.
Consumers are concerned with the quality and safety of their product. That’s why the biosecurity, farm management and nutritional solutions we provide are so important for ensuring the health and productivity of your operation.
Zinpro Performance Minerals have been shown to boost the antioxidant capacity of shrimp in only three weeks, allowing astaxanthin to be diverted for pigmentation purposes instead of antioxidant functions (sparing effect) — saving $66 US per ton of feed while increasing the value and marketability of shrimp.
At Zinpro®, we understand the value our customers put on their feed conversion ratio (FCR). That’s why choosing the right trace mineral source and level is so crucial for success. Our shrimp solutions are designed to maximize your return on investment with advanced nutritional technology that’s proven to be more effective than any other trace mineral source on the market.
