LPB™ FROZEN SHELLFISH DIET®
For Larvae, Post-larvae and Broodstock Bivalves and Larval Shrimp, LPB is a frozen, whole-cell concentrate of Tetraselmis sp., Thalassiosira weissflogii, Thalassiosira pseudonana, and Schizochytrium
TET 3600™ Tetraselmis
Tet 3600™ is a frozen, whole-cell concentrate of Tetraselmis sp., a large green flagellate with a very high lipid level and natural amino acids that stimulate feeding in bivalves and larval shrimp. Strain: PLY 429
TP 3000 Thalassiosira pseudonana
15% dry weight Frozen formula
TP 3000 is a frozen, whole-cell concentrate of Thalassiosira pseudonana — a nutritionally balanced and very clean microalgae for all live stages from larvae to broodstock.
TW 2400 Thalassiosira weissflogii
12% dry weight Frozen formula
Thalassiosira weissflogii is a large diatom (6-20µm x 8-15µm) that is used in the shrimp and shellfish larviculture industry. This algae is considered by several hatcheries to be the single best algae for larval shrimp.
TP 1800™ Thalassiosira pseudonana
TP 1800 is a refrigerated, whole-cell concentrate of Thalassiosira pseudonana — a nutritionally balanced and very clean microalgae for all live stages from larvae to broodstock.
Effective for all life stages: first feeding, larvae, setting, spat and broodstock conditioning; produces increased growth and survival rates.
SHELLFISH DIET 1800®
A unique mix of five marine microalgae - Isochrysis, Pavlova, Tetraselmis, Thalassiosira weissflogii and Thalassiosira pseudonana species that have demonstrated success with a wide variety of marine and freshwater shellfish, including: oysters, clams, mussels, scallops, and crustaceans.
PAV 1800™ Pavlova
Pav 1800™ is a refrigerated, whole-cell concentrate of Pavlova sp. microalgae. Pavlova, a small golden/brown flagellate similar to Isochrysis, is very high in DHA and carotenoids. (Strain: CCPM 459).
