AQUI-S® Versatile Aquatic Anaesthetic

AQUI-S® is a versatile aquatic anaesthetic that has been developed to give flexibility and control in animal husbandry, transportation and harvesting operations. The ingredients are approved for use in foods and AQUI-S® is safe for use in food fish. Fish that are harvested using AQUI-S® have improved flesh quality, greater yield and longer shelf lives. The use of AQUI-S® during the transportation of live fish and during health management practices lowers stress and reduces mortalities.

ANIMAL WELFARE & AQUI-S®

Consideration of animal welfare is a fundamental and growing requirement in aquaculture. There are many unavoidable activities which can cause extensive stress to aquatic animals, including disease treatment, transport, handling, broodstock stripping, grading and slaughter. AQUI-S® reduces stress during these operations, providing you with strong healthy animals that command a high price at market. Explore our WELFARE section to learn about welfare and how AQUI-S® can help reduce stress and improve quality in your operations.
