Intensive and semi-intensive aqua farming accompanies
several disease problems often due to
opportunistic pathogens as evident from general
aquaculture. High stocking densities, high food inputs
and other organic loads stimulate the selection and
proliferation of opportunistic pathogens like
bacteria, virus, fungi, protozoa etc.
Shrimp are actively “grazing” on the substrate present
in the pond bottom and water column.
Therefore, they highly expose to exchanges of microflora
between the environment and the digestive
system. This increases the risk for the proliferation of
an unfavorable gut microflora or frequent
destabilization of the microflora, which can affect the
optimal functioning of the digestive system.
Furthermore, the digestive system of shrimp is the main
entry port for protozoan, bacterial and viral
infections, which remain a major risk for the
profitability of shrimp production. Presently these are
most important Gut track diseases in shrimps:
• White Feces Syndrome (WFS)
• White Gut Disease (WGD)
• White Muscle Disease (WMD)
De Gut is specially designed and developed with the combination of probiotics and enzymes that are essential enough to control the white feces, white gut and white muscle.
