NETHERLANDS - Kiotech International plc has been conducting large-scale trials at commercial aquaculture facilities to assess the efficacy of its pheromone-based feeding attractants in full scale commercial situations. Initial results from these trials have been very encouraging.

The trials were carried out in partnership with the UK Government Agency CEFAS (the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science) and in collaboration with local aquaculture and fish institutes in China and Thailand.

Tilapia trial
At a six month commercial trial, the species Tilapia gained 17% more weight as compared to control. The accelerated rate of fish growth allowed harvesting of Tilapia 3 weeks early. In addition, the fish appeared healthier and the water quality was improved. This trial also showed that secondary crop of White Shrimp (grown in same ponds) yielded significantly higher weights with less disease.
