AQUI-S is a water dispersible liquid anaesthetic for finfish, crustacea and abalone. AQUI-S is registered with a zero withdrawal period and can be used for all fish husbandry and transport applications, including rested harvesting of fish.
Sedating fish with AQUI-S prior to and during a handling event will minimise physical activity by the animal, reduce the metablic rate and mitigate the stress response by minimising the release of stress hormones. Consequently fish have improved condition and survivability after handling. Using AQUI-S for rested harvesting results in improved quality and consistency in the product.
Most fish management practices require an AQUI-S concentration of between 15 and 20 ppm in an immersion bath to achieve suitable anaesthetisation levels. For most live fish transportation situations an AQUI-S concentration between 1 and 5 ppm is suitable.
