SEAFDEC/AQD signed an agreement with Hong Kong-based Kiko Technology for a test trial of their new product called Tritan (designed to improve water quality). The signing was held on 16 January at AQD’s main station in Tigbauan, Iloilo, Philippines.

The objective of this trial is to demonstrate how Tritan (18 pieces were given to AQD) can decrease mortality rates, improve water clarity in tanks/ponds, improve product taste, reduce tank/pond odors, impact rates of feed conversion, increase size/weight of the subject, and/or promote uniformity of size, weight, color, etc. The test trial will be conducted on grouper, shrimp, mud crab, abalone, microalgae and seaweeds.
