Fishkill has been the major cause of bankruptcy to many fish farmers. Yearly, milkfish mortality reaches thousands in Pangasinan and Batangas due to insufficient dissolved oxygen due to high concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the water. This has been solved now by Philippine Atovi Technology. With the available technology, fish kill is avoided because of fast hydrogen sulfide neutralization and strong resistance of fish against temperature extremes (hot & cold). The technology also flushes heavy metals like mercury on the cellular level of fish, and can provide life support in long distance transportation.
DOSAGE FOR FEEDS:
Mix 1 tablespoon of Atovi powder (10 grams Atovi) to 4 liters of water. Use cotton cloth to filter. The filtrates may be safely fed to them. After straining the mixture, transfer it to a hand sprayer and apply to commercial feeds or any other form of meal before feeding. Do this regularly before feeding time to boost their immune system and help them grow fast.
DOSAGE FOR WATER IN FISH POND:
For every hectare of fishpond, apply 1 kilo of Atovi powder. Procedure: Mix 1 kilo Atovi to a drum of water (160-200 liters), and apply to the whole of fishpond. Apply Atovi weekly at least for the first two months of culture to be assured of good quality of water, maintenance of “dissolved oxygen” and to make sure that water is free from pollution, toxins, chemicals, bacteria, hydrogen sulfide and other problems. Besides, Atovi helps in the proliferation of algae in the fishpond, which serves as natural food for them. It is best to start applying Atovi during pond preparation before stocking.
Note: Sea water cannot be applied with Atovi. The feeds or meal given to them can be applied with the technology.
