The requirement of minerals in L. vannamei culture ponds is very high and application of the minerals is very important in regular intervals. MERAMIN DS is a perfect blend of 100% bio-available hygroscopic aquaculture mineral combination. This MERAMIN DS performs effectively with low doses and prevents the loose shell & soft shell in the shrimp ponds. This combination improves the natural food as well as maintaining optimum acid – base balance that influences the best osmoregulation in the shrimp. This also maintains very good plankton blooms in the culture ponds. The initial booster dose of MERAMIN DS is 10 Kg/Ha and followed by regular dose of 5.0 Kg/Ha.
