Syrena® Boost: Delacon enters aqua market

With Syrena® Boost, Delacon brings along a full phytogenic solution to serve modern aquaculture practices. The premixture targets gut performance and productivity. It is a solution for all aqua species. To date, trial results are available for Tilapia. Delacon’s aqua team proudly announces the worldwide launch of Syrena® Boost.

Disease outbreaks, food safety assurance, and unstable productivity are just a few challenges in aquaculture. On these demands, Delacon developed Syrena® Boost with well-selected bio actives. The product is a premixture of specific saponins, spices and essential oils.

The phytogenic solution serves an efficient, profitable yet sustainable aquaculture production, say Delacon experts: Trial results show improved feed intake (6%), a boost in specific growth rate (5%), and a ROI (4:1).

“For developing Syrena® Boost, we released our phytogenic expertise. In-vivo and in-vitro trials underline the performance of the product. It is a natural product with high quality, standardized and proven active ingredients,” says Alex Makol, Species Leader Aqua.

Sensitive ingredients of Syrena® Boost are micro-encapsulated. This ensures thermal stability and slow intestinal release of sensitive ingredients.

Binh Nguyen Ngoc, Asian Regional Sales & Technical Manager Aqua, adds: “The aqua market is developing fast. Farmers rely on performance and productivity. Additionally, they carefully look at future economic and political factors. Using a full phytogenic feed additive such as Syrena® Boost will be very attractive.”
