1. GROWING PHYTOPLANKTON IN THE SEAS TO ABSORB GLOBAL CARBON DIOXIDE AND REDUCE
GREENHOUSE EFFECT THEREBY SOLVING GLOBAL WARMING PROBLEM.


Most parts of the seas are not productive due to the lack of essential micronutrients. ' NUALGI ' contains all micronutrients in the biologically available form. When it is dosed to the sea water, algal bloom can be noticed almost immediately, starting from a few minutes to a few hours. This bloom consists mainly of diatoms which are soon consumed by zooplankton and later on by fishes. Attention is drawn to the article on Iron fertilization by Mr. C.H.Coale, of Moss Landing Marine Laboratories, California, USA in the Encyclopedia of ocean sciences edited by John H Steele © Academic Press, wherein a schematic representation of the 'iron theory' suggests that iron requirement for carbon removal varies from 1-2 µ mol Fe/mol C to 15 µ mol Fe/mol C. As per calculation 1 gm of Fe can remove about 14 kg to 140 kg of C from the sea depending upon the species of diatoms growing. Every country may add ' NUALGI ' to their coastal waters based on the carbon emitted and remove the carbon load from the system. Each kg of ' NUALGI ' dosed in the sea can remove about 140 kg to 1400 kg of carbon from the sea. The money spent could be recovered from the polluters and from taxes on the fishes caught due to extra marine productivity. The by-product is increased marine productivity, prosperity for the fishermen and cleaner waters.

   
 

2. FOR PREVENTING GROWTH OF TOXIC ALGAL SPECIES CALLED 'RED TIDES' IN THE SEA


Toxic algal species grow due to pollution and imbalance in the nutrients available for normal diatom algal growth. Excessive sewage and industrial pollution dumped untreated into the sea is the main reason for the growth of the 'RED TIDES'. If ' NUALGI ' is added to the sea then the nutrient imbalance is corrected and the excess nitrates and phosphates are absorbed and converted into diatom algae with the result that toxic algal species cannot grow at all. With the excess nutrient load in the form of N, P and organic load being removed the sea will become a better and cleaner environment both for men and marine animals.

   
 

3. FOR GENERATION OF LIVE FOOD IN AQUACULTURE PONDS TO BOOST THE GROWTH OF PRAWNS  AND FISHES.

NUALGI (RESEARCH PRODUCT PATENT PENDING)

BENEFITS:

  • Reduces cost of culture
  • Produces high quality nutritional live food for fast and healthy growth and moulting.
  • Reduces pond pollution.
  • Reduces incidence of diseases.
  • Color and quality of cultured animal is extremely good.
  • Boosts Dissolved oxygen since algae is produced and consumed in the system.

Algal bloom is required in the pond to give dissolved oxygen and to provide a shade. The sources of dissolved oxygen in an aqua pond are 4% from the water poured in, 7% mixed in from the surface water, and mainly 89% from the photosynthesis of algae. The growth of a quality bloom is a mystery and it varies from pond to pond. The use of organic and inorganic Fertilizers and water exchange does not guarantee a quality bloom. If the source water is polluted there is no immediate remedy. If the algal bloom comprises of green algae and blue green algae then it does not readily support live food like zooplankton since the cell walls are made of cellulose and it is not easily digestible by the marine animals. Since the algae is not consumed it persists in the system and one day it will die and crash creating Dissolved oxygen problems.

If ' NUALGI ' is used in the pond it will generate a species of 'DIATOM ALGAE' that is easily digested and supports a large live food population comprising of zooplankton. The algae constantly grow and are consumed. Repeated application may be made depending on live food requirement. In the initial stages of culture the shrimp prefers live food. Substitute artificial feeds are often wasted contributing to pollution of the pond bottom and severe D.O. problems during culture.

Most of the zooplankton are less than 2 mm in size. This live food is preferable for culture of prawns and fishes for 30 to 40 days till such time that the animals are about 10 gms in size. Later on the pellet feeds can be consumed without wastage and pollution to the pond. The costs of culture under this method can come down substantially by anywhere from 25% to 50%. Cultivating artemia as source of live food may be a good idea to have very fast shrimp growth at very low costs. The details are mentioned below.


METHOD OF APPLICATION OF NUALGI


BROCHURE

'Nualgi' contains special and trace nutrients that are deficient in normal waters. Upon application diatom algae will start blooming within 3 hours that will trigger a large population of zooplankton. 'Nualgi' produces both live food as well as oxygen (by photosynthesis) in the pond. 'Nualgi' can be used for (a) Creating live food (b) Solving problems in the pond.

Dosage: Apply I kg 'Nualgi' for I-acre pond water(4000M') once in 3-6 days.

(a) Creating live food in the pond: Take one kg. 'Nualgi' in a 60 mesh net along with 2 kg Urea, 100 gms DAP, 100 gms yeast and dip into 100 Its of water and squeeze till it dissolves. Add this to the pond. Dissolve about 50 kg of cow dung and add to the pond. You will get good bloom and zooplankton as live food in ] -2 days. Observe the zooplankton density and modifY frequency of addition of 'Nualgi' based on size of animals and biomass in the pond. The plankton forms excellent and complete food for fishes and prawns. The costs are low and growth is faster. Other solid food like bran, oil-cake, and pellets may be added only if necessary.

(b) Solving problems in the pond: Addition of only "Nualgi' with 1 00 gms yeast and a little cow dung produces a diatom algal bloom in the pond in 3 hours. The bloom produces large quantities of oxygen, removes ammonia, crashes out blooms of green, blue-green, fi lamentous and toxic algae, and improves the pond condition and health of animals
.


Other benefits of using 'Nualgi'.
1. Improves survival.
2.Helps breakdown of organic over loads.
3.Prevents organic pollution and generation of toxic gases.
4.Prevents muddy and moldy smell in prawns.
5.Improves color, freshness, strength, and weight gain.
6.Boosts immunity and reduces incidence of diseases.
7.Reduces requirement of water exchange.

 


Method of dissolution of NUALGI


Take 1 kg Nualgi packet in a cloth bag or any fine net and dip in 100 litres of water and squeeze till everything dissolves. Add this to the pond. Do not reduce the dissolving water since better dilution results in better dissolution and hence better efficacy.

In case the water is already rich in nutrients like Nitrate and Phosphate you may reduce or avoid urea and phosphate. Repeat the above procedure every day or once in 2 to 3 days every time you want to boost live food. Diatom bloom generally starts within a few hours.

 
   
   
   

 


LIVE FOOD ARTEMIA CULTURE


Artemia is a crustacean that can live in salinity's from 5 ppt to 300 ppt. It is easily hatched from cysts and becomes adult in about 2 weeks. The adult size is about 10 mm. Artemia is a filter feeder and lives on algae, bacteria and detritus. Each female artemia reproduces about 300 live nauplii once in 4 days. Artemia cysts are available in all aqua shops.

Using light and aeration, artemia cysts can be hatched in 24 hours in a 200-liter barrel of seawater and added to the pond. 100 g of hatched artemia cysts can develop into 50 kg of adult artemia in 2 weeks. The diatoms developed using ' NUALGI ' are rich in HUFA (Highly unsaturated fatty acid) and hence the nutritional profile of the artemia will be excellent and it will boost the growth of the shrimps.

Artemia culture can be started in the same pond before stocking the shrimp fry so that live food is readily available as the shrimp grows. In the alternative a separate artemia culture pond may be kept and adult artemia harvested and added to the shrimp pond. As long as the live food is there in the pond the artificial foods may be avoided. After that the shrimps would have grown in size and will now accept artificial foods and grow fast. Further the pollution in the pond will be significantly reduced and animals will be extremely healthy. The cost of feeding will also come down substantially (In excess of 50%). In a one-hectare pond, 100g to 500g of artemia cysts may be hatched and added. Further multiplication will happen automatically.


4. FOR TREATING SEWAGE, POLLUTED AND EFFLUENT WATERS BY GROWING DIATOMS AND REDUCING COD AND BOD AND COLOUR


If ' NUALGI ' is applied to effluent waters containing sewage and industrial wastewater (provided there are no toxic chemicals and metals), diatom algae can be made to grow and absorb carbon load and release oxygen. If we have the nutrient analysis of the wastewater we can tailor make the product to suit individual requirements. The release of oxygen and absorption of the nutrient load will reduce the BOD and COD. In some cases the growing algae could remove the color in the water. This can be proved only by trials.


5. FOR RECLAIMING AND BRINGING LIFE TO LAKES, RIVERS, AND WATER BODIES THAT ARE POLLUTED BY  SEWAGE AND OTHER POLLUTANTS AND THOSE IN A STATE OF EUTROPHICATION.

Most of the lakes and rivers of the world are severely polluted by sewage and industrial effluents. Due to this there is very little aquatic life and most are in various stages of eutrophication. The heavy load of nutrients like nitrogen and phosphate and the lack of essential trace nutrients for diatom algal growth are the main reasons for such a state of affairs. If ' NUALGI ' is added to the system the diatom algae starts growing and very soon the water conditions improve. More oxygen and live food returns to the water and very soon the water body is restored to its normalcy. The dosage depends of the nutrient load in the system. As a thumb rule, about 1 kg. of ' NUALGI ' per day is enough for about 4000m 3 of water. Dosage may be reduced or increased depending on actual conditions. After recovery of the water body even a tenth of the above dosage could be enough.


6. FOR PREVENTING WILD GROWTH OF WATERWEEDS, WATER HYACINTH, GREEN ALGAE AND BLUE GREEN ALGAE AND OTHER WASTE PLANTS IN LAKES, RIVERS,PONDS AND OTHER WATER BODIES.

The addition of ' NUALGI ' always removes excess nutrient loads of Nitrogen and Phosphate from the water body by growing diatoms and converting to live food. In the absence of the nutrient load, other exogenous weeds and plants cannot grow. Further in lakes where the wild plants have already grown, if ' NUALGI ' is dosed into it, the rapid growth of diatoms consumes the nutrient chain required for the weeds to grow. Slowly they turn into yellow color and die. Within a few months they disappear from the pond. It is important that systematic dosing of the body of water with ' NUALGI ' should be carried out.

7. AVOIDING MASS FISH KILL

Oxygen depletion in water bodies is the major reason for mass fish kill . Sometimes toxins released by algal species like blue green algae and dynoflagellates are also responsible for mass fish mortalities. Using 'Nualgi' can prevent this. Addition of 'NUALGI' produces blooms of diatom algae that help crash out green,blue green and toxic algal species from the water body. The blooming diatoms produce very large quantities of oxygen by photosynthesis and is soon converted into zooplankton that is live food for fishes.The water body becomes clean and healthy.
