BioMar Chile Presents New Strategy for Sea Lice Control
FOCUS PreLice was designed as a tool to reduce the rate of sea lice infestation.
Tests carried out by BioMar Chile to control the caligidosis in salmon have discovered that a compound derived from the soap bark tree, a Chilean endemic tree, might help to significantly reduce the parasite burden. The compound forms part of the formulation of FOCUS PreLice, a new functional diet launched by BioMar this week. The new diet also contains other active ingredients in order to enhance the mucus production and the regeneration of tissue by exerting a synergistic action.
