ALSTASAN SILVOX (Silver Hydrogen Peroxide based Biodegradable Aquaculture Disinfectant) when diluted with water at an effective concentration addresses the main areas of concern to check the growth of microorganisms. Effective against all known pathogens of prawn farming, yet nontoxic for the aquatic life, this potent micro-biocide has earned its “safe” reputation. 

Degrading into water and oxygen, this silver stabilized hydrogen peroxide (Aquaculture Disinfectant) increases the dissolved oxygen content of water, with no other harmful residues taken up by the fishes intended for human consumption.

This Aquaculture Disinfectant is effective against the following Giant river prawn diseases:

  • Black/ Brown spot, by Vibrio sp., Pseudomonas sp., Aeromonas sp. is identified by pale skin patches, observed in all life stages
  • Bacterial necrosis, by Pseudomonas sp., Leucothrix sp., is similar to black spot disease
  • Fusarium solani causes infection in the adult stages
