ponds owing to their confined systems are prone to
excess loads of ammonia. The buildup of ammonia in ponds
causes stressfully toxic environments, low oxygen levels
and off-tasting product. These unfavourable growing
conditions, in turn, create high mortality rates and
reduce commercial profitability. These problems can be
controlled and higher yields will result by using
TekTron-BT provides highly specialized, naturally
acclimated microorganisms that possess enhanced
degradation capabilities. The synergistic blends of
TekTron-BT microbes rapidly attack organic
contaminants and offer superior assimilation of
nutrients when compared with other augmented bacteria.
TekTron-BT is made by the addition of highly
fortified value added carriers which stimulate bacterial
activity in less than optimal environments.
The bacteria culture used in TekTron-BT is aimed
for application to specific organic problems and
typically contains a number of species that have been
selected and combined to degrade specific organic
compounds or waste products in aquaculture pond system.
TekTron-BT works in the entire water column as
well as bottom sludge to break down and digest these
In TekTron-BT, strains of probiotic bacteria work
together - each producing the enzymes necessary to
degrade specific components in the waste and their
resulting intermediates until reaching non-harmful
compounds such as water and carbon dioxide.
TekTron-BT can establish the pond water, a living
system of biologically active eco-friendly microbial
culture, enzymes, activators and accelerators to enable
aquaculture ponds perform better. The TekTron-BT
microbes populate the entire system, multiply and
produce large quantities of digestive enzymes on an
Source of Ammonia in Aquaculture ponds
The main source of ammonia in aquaculture ponds is
simply through unconsumed feed, fecal matter, gill
excretion, dead algae and diffusion from the pond
The TekTron-BT bacterial cultures will help break
down ammonia to form nitrate and nitrites which are then
reduced to nitrogen gas. Similarly the nitrate-rich
manure and uneaten food in the pond are broken down to
non-hazardous materials. Unless treated with TekTron-BT,
all the waste materials form oxygen-depleting bottom
MINERALISATION OF ORGANIC MATTER BY TEKTRON-BT
IN AQUACULURE PONDS
The Mineralisation Process in Aquaculure Ponds
In aquaculture ponds, a mechanism of “Mineralisation
Process” helps to eliminate protenaceous wastes,
carbonaceous waste, ammonia, nitrite and other toxic
Mineralisation is the biological process where organic
compounds in organic matter are chemically converted by
the microorganisms in soil to simpler organic compounds
or mineralised nutrients. Bacteria and fungi are
responsible for most of the mineralisation of organic
matter in soils. Microorganisms release enzymes that
oxidise the organic compounds in organic matter. The
oxidation reaction releases energy and carbon, which
micro-organisms need to live. The final end product of
mineralisation is nutrients in the mineral form.
Phytoplankton requires nutrients to be in mineral form
to take them up from soil. Therefore all waste nutrients
in organic matter of aquaculture ponds must undergo
mineralisation before they can be used by again by
TekTron-BT is a completely natural and
eco-friendly microbial blend for enhanced Mineralisation

environments for shrimp and fish aquaculture operations.

Dosage and Administration
To maintain appropriate plankton blooms and minimize
organic loads, a dosage quantity of 50-275 kg/Acre of
TekTron-BT in spilt dosages of one application per
month would be required depending on the stocking
density or as advised by Aquaculture Consultant.
TekTron-BT is very easy to apply and could be
applied direct to the aquaculture pond.
