Ammonia toxicity is one of the biggest problems regarding water quality in intensive aquaculture systems. Besides decreased growth performance, ammonia can have a negative influence on fish welfare and health, and in the end increase mortality. Excential AmmoSAN, Orffa’s pelletized clinoptilolite source, effectively binds ammonia to improve water quality.
Water quality can be improved by the use of Excential AmmoSAN. These pellets, containing the clay mineral clinoptilolite, are a fast and eff sicient method to bind ammonia and other toxic compounds in water. Excential AmmoSAN is clinoptilolite in pellets of 2-3 cm in size. This makes the product easy to handle and store. After addition to water, the pellets fall apart in particles of 700 microns and smaller, to optimize surface area and binding capacity.
