MALAYSIA - Meriden's Orego-Stim has been proven to increase performance in the Tilapia supply chain.

Commercial Malaysian aquaculture began in the 1980’s. In the last five years the aquaculture sector has recorded an annual growth rate of about 10 per cent year on year. It has now grown into a lucrative and sustainable industry, associated with the culture of high value species, mainly saltwater shrimp, marine fish and high value freshwater fish and shrimp.

Orego-Stim has proven itself to be an integral component for the advancement of responsible Tilapia aquaculture cultivation and has been shown to provide profitable benefits to all components within the production supply chain.

Trial data has shown that the group of Tilapia treated with Orego-Stim had a greater final harvest biomass by over 1.7 tonnes at the end of the trial period.

The Orego-Stim group also had a lower cumulative mortality than the control group, totalling 1.6 tonnes of biomass at harvest.

The trial showed how Orego-Stim works in a commercial aquaculture environment to significantly improve a range of growth parameters including average fish weight, biomass, survivability, growth period, FCR and return on investment.
