Hatcheries face environmental stresses, high feed costs, infectious pathogens and bacterial infections, and high mortality rates that can not only affect the market supply but the profitability of the farm. Our mission is to provide high-quality products to improve water quality and to provide the largest output of shrimp at the lowest cost to the farmers. Our new technology is the future of shrimp hatcheries.


Antibiotics are very strictly regulated in aquaculture production. Probiotics – especially Bacillus species – are gaining popularity in hatcheries as an alternative to antibiotics for their health and water quality benefits

Bacillus probiotics require very specific conditions in order to activate – only a small number will become active naturally. Without the process of activation, spores will stay dormant indefinitely – which makes them good for storage but their low activity levels do not give direct benefits to shrimp hatcheries


Our activated probiotic technology found in the ACTPRO and ECOcharger systems commits our carefully selected Bacillus spore strains to activate and become vegetative immediately when they are delivered to the tanks

Vegetative cells do all the work:

  • Water quality improvement
  • Competitive exclusion
  • Enzyme production
  • Immune system support



Inactive Bacillus Spores

  • Bacillus spore bacteria require specific nutrients and conditions to activate
  • If conditions are met, spores take 4-6 hours to activate
  • If not activated, most pass  through the gut in dormant form or are dormant until they are removed with the water
  • Requires large amounts of bacteria to have an impact, most probiotics must be added at very high levels



Activated Bacillus Spores

  • We provide the exact conditions for each strain to activate
  • Over 95% of our spores are committed to activate and grow
  • Our probiotics are awake and growing within 1 hour of addition to the tanks, producing enzymes and enhancing water quality
  • Supporting gut function and development with activated probiotic bacteria



Our probiotic technologies and farm solutions provide aquaculture facilities with the tools they need to support healthy shrimp and healthy farms
