The main source of ecdysterone is the root of the pearl dew plant.It is an active substance that can promote the metabolism and protein synthesis of aquatic animals,enhance their ability to adapt to the environment,and can promote the growth and development of aquatic animals.Ecdysone is widely used in aquaculture,but its use is subject to relevant laws and regulations to ensure food safety and quality.
Function and application of ecdysterone in aquaculture
1,to promote shrimp,crabs timely dehulling,remove the barrier of dehulling,remove harmful parasites.Ecdysone can stimulate the endocrine system of shrimp and crab,promote their shell,thus contributing to growth and development,to achieve rapid growth function.In addition,ecdysone can also remove harmful parasites,thereby improving the efficiency of aquaculture products.
2,promote metabolism and protein synthesis in the body,enhance the ability to adapt to the environment.Ecdysone can improve the metabolism level of aquaculture animals and promote the synthesis of proteins in the body,thus enhancing their adaptability to the environment.At the same time,ecdysone can also significantly increase the weight gain rate and reduce the feed coefficient.
In actual production,many farmers have adopted ecdysterone to improve the yield and economic benefits of aquaculture.For example,in the culture of South American white shrimp,the addition of an appropriate amount of ecdysterone can shorten the growth cycle of shrimp by about 10 days,significantly increasing its yield.However,different farmed animals and different growth stages may require specific consideration of the type and dosage of ecdysterone to be used to achieve the best results.
