Aquaculture is playing an increasingly important role in the total seafood production of Vietnam. According to statistics of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, the total aquaculture area of the country always ranges from 850,000 to 1,100,000 hectares with production from 2.4 to 3.4 million tons per year (according to statistics in 2018). Aquaculture products have been present in markets around the world, especially Shrimp, Tilapia, Ca Ba sa … However, along with increasing productivity and increasing aquaculture output, The issue of ensuring aquatic safety and hygiene is a particularly serious issue. The seafood import markets around the world have extremely strict safety and hygiene requirements. In addition, Vietnam is one of the countries most severely affected by climate change, the loose management of authorities at all levels and public awareness of environmental issues have made the situation polluted. Water pollution is happening more and more seriously. This is really a huge challenge that our country’s fisheries industry is facing.
Water supply and sediment quality in the pond are the two biggest threats that directly affect aquaculture. Water pollution with poorly treated bottom sludge and sludge will be the source of pathogens, which directly affects the productivity and quality of aquaculture products.
Diatomite is a biologically derived sediment formed in freshwater or saltwater areas due to the decomposition of diatomeae algae. With a special algae frame structure, Diatomite has great adsorption capacity. Diatomite is an inorganic clay mineral that does not contain harmful components, the adsorption of pollutants is fast and easy to control, so it shows superiority compared to other traditional methods. With the largest volume and quality of Diatomite in Vietnam with suitable processing technology. We have produced Diatomite products for use in pond treatment, aquaculture ponds and supplied to aquaculture businesses and households, opening a new direction for the management of water quality. bring benefits to the environment while also bring about very high economic value.
