GLOBE - Aquaculture company Kiotech International has had an environmental risk assessment of its Aquatice range of products reviewed and approved by the UKs Department for Environment Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).

Kiotech, which makes products used in the farming of fish, said the risk assessment followed the UK Government's and European Commission's Directives relating to the aquatic environment, reports SmallCapsNews.co.uk.

The review and approval by Defra is a significant milestone for Aquatice and should help to simplify and shorten the normally complex and extended regulatory approval process for new additives, Kiotech said.

The company noted that the approval would be particularly useful in the important Asian and Latin America markets, which account for around 80% of world aquaculture production.
