Half of Shrimp Feed Contains Toxin Binder to Fight EMS


Fifty percent of the shrimp feed produced in Mexico in 2015 contained Calibrin-Z, a bacterial-toxin-control product that protects the hepatopancreas from the damaging effects of EMS.  Calibrin-Z works by adsorbing the Vibrio parahaemolyticus bacterial toxin in the shrimp’s digestive system, thereby increasing the rate of survival in a shrimp crop.  Studies have shown improvements in survivability of up to 84% versus controls when shrimp challenged with the Vibrio parahaemolyticus toxin were fed Calibrin-Z.
