Texas—Fritz-Zyme TurboStart 900


A recent study completed by Texas A&M’s AgriLife Research Mariculture Lab demonstrated the benefits of using Fritz-Zyme TurboStart 900, a product developed to accelerate the development of marine specific nitrifying bacteria in closed culture systems to increase shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) production and reduce losses.


The Fritz Industries’ product proved effective at accelerating the development of nitrifying bacteria and limiting the accumulation of ammonia and nitrite.


According to the study, adding Fritz-Zyme TurboStart to closed culture systems “greatly accelerated AOB (ammonia oxidizing bacteria) and NOB (nitrite-oxidizing bacteria) establishment” and “demonstrated a viable system for establishing nitrifying bacteria.”


Nitrite spikes are commonly observed in closed intensive shrimp production systems as culture water matures,” said David Prangnell, Ph.D., one of the four researchers who completed the study.  “This trial has demonstrated a viable system for establishing Fritz-Zyme nitrifying bacteria, which can then be transferred to larger closed culture systems used for super-intensive shrimp culture.”
