Shrimp Pond Fertilizer

Our Solution

Tea saponin, derived from tea seed meal, is emerging as a valuable resource in aquaculture, particularly for shrimp pond fertilization. It is a natural, non-ionic surfactant active, which offers several benefits in aquaculture.

One of the primary advantages of using tea saponin in shrimp ponds is its effectiveness in eliminating unwanted fish and harmful insects. Tea saponin is known to have ichthyotoxic and hemolytic properties, meaning it can effectively kill certain types of fish and other aquatic organisms that might compete with or prey on shrimp. Importantly, while being lethal to these unwanted species, tea saponin is safe for shrimp, making it an ideal choice for maintaining a healthy shrimp pond environment.

Tea saponin also acts as a natural organic fertilizer with NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) content, beneficial for the aquatic environment. It aids in improving the water quality and provides essential nutrients that can enhance the growth and health of shrimps. The presence of organic matter in tea saponin helps to stimulate microbial activity, contributing to a balanced ecosystem within the pond.

Furthermore, tea saponin is environmentally friendly and non-toxic, making it a sustainable choice for aquaculture. It does not leave harmful residues in the water, ensuring the safety of the aquatic life and the surrounding environment. Its use aligns with eco-friendly practices, reducing the reliance on chemical-based treatments and fertilizers in shrimp farming.

In summary, tea saponin offers a multifaceted approach to shrimp pond management. Its ability to eliminate undesirable species, coupled with its role as an organic fertilizer and its environmental friendliness, positions it as a valuable asset in sustainable aquaculture practices.
