Treatment of aquaculture water in transportation of live animals with specially formulated bacterial products provides a natural way to eliminate pollution and stress generators and to create a beneficial microbial environment that inhibits the development of harmful organisms.  Carefully selected, natural bacteria have a powerful capacity to utilize pollutants such as ammonia, nitrates and nitrites in their normal metabolism of organic carbon.  Additionally, a thriving culture of the right natural bacteria provide a “probiotic” environment which suppresses the growth of harmful organisms.  Through these two mechanisms, a healthier aquatic creature is kept that has greater vitality and immunity to disease.
