REXIL ASIA – KEY SPEAKER AT THE 10TH INTERNATIONAL FISHERIE SYMPOSIUM IN NHA TRANG VIETNAM

This week our Asian Division ‘ReXil Asia’ is present at 10th International Fisheries Symposium, hosted by Nha Trang University with the theme “Adapt to changes”. ReXil’s Technical Director Cees van Stee, key note speaker, is representing our Aquatic Products ‘Optishrimp’, ‘Optifish’ and ‘Optishellfish’. Insights on how this promising silicic acid product line benefits a sustainable Aquaculture chain has been shared with an interesting crowd.

The ASEAN-FEN Annual International Fisheries Symposium is an annual academic symposium which provides the attendees the opportunity to gain insights into topics in many sessions including: (1) Aquaculture biotechnology and engineering; (2) Aquatic animal nutrition and physiology; (3) Aquatic animal health management; (4) Genetics and breeding; (5) Fishing and fishery technology, policy and law, aquatic resources and environmental management, biodiversity and climate change; (6) EAFTA: Seafood processing technology, food safety and security, fisheries socio-economics and management; (7) Community outreach in fisheries and aquaculture.

REXIL AGRO ON TRADE MISSION – VIETNAM – GEFE 2022

Last week, the Green Economy Forum & Exhibition (GEFE) 2022 event was held in Ho Chi Minh City. GEFE is one of the biggest international events in Vietnam introducing European best practices and technologies for Vietnam in more than 20 green sectors. At our pavilion we brought together our experts to have high-level B2B dialogues and introduce our innovative solution for a sustainable future by presenting our patented Silicic Acid Technology product line for Agro, Aquaculture, Husbandry and Humans. With the presence of Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Mrs. Liesje Schreinemacher, this event was an interesting platform to enhance cooperation between European and Vietnamese business communities, and to promote a sustainable green Vietnamese economy through expertise sharing and technology transfer initiatives.

 

DURING THE SUMMIT BIOSTIMULANTS EUROPE IN SEVILLA, REXIL AGRO'S FOUNDER AND R&D DIRECTOR HENK MAARTEN LAANE WILL EXPLAIN THE POTENTIALS OF SILICIC ACID IN AQUACULTUR AND AGRICULTURE AT THE BIOSTIMULANTS EUROPE SUMMIT

ACI’s Biostimulants Europe Summit will be taking place over the 30th November and 1st December 2022 in Seville, Spain. The conference will bring together leading executives and experts from across the entire value chain (producers of biostimulant and plant nutrient products, farmers and agriculture suppliers, technology providers, research institutes & government representatives) for two days of informative presentations, interactive discussion & excellent networking opportunities.

ReXil Asia Now Member of the topsector Mekong Delta

From the 5th till the 9th of September the Mekong Delta Business Platform (MDBP) took place in Vietnam, organized by the Embassy of the Netherlands and the Topsectors. Our Asian cooperation ‘ReXil Asia’, member of the VCCI and now also one of the top sectors of Mekong Delta attended in Ho Chi Minh City to represent our Aquaculture product ‘REXAQUA’. The solution for a sustainable nature-based Aquaculture chain. During the Research & Technology panel our CEO Drs. Ir. William Nolten explained why the product ‘REXAQUA’ should be part of the future Aquaculture chain:

  • REXAQUA provides essential nutrients to improve the growth of algae and diatoms, increases resistance and inhibit the growth of pathogenic bacteria by preventing pathogens from attaching to the intestinal tract of shrimp and crab, fish, snails and eels.
  • REXAQUA stimulates shrimp to molt, harden the shell, make the shrimp’s color brighter and lighter, increase productivity and survival rate for aquaculture.
  • REXAQUA significantly improves dissolved oxygen concentration, reducing metal content.

We are thankful for the great audience and are looking forward for more opportunities and promising collaborations. You can follow our updates on www.rexil-agro.com.

Second publication in Aquafeed Magazine July 2022, Optimising shrimp health & production

In conclusion, the effect of adding a bioavailable silicic acid product (Silifish®) has pronounced effects on specific genes that influence shrimp performance in relation to digestive functional efficiency and enhancing key components of the innate immune system and stress tolerance capacity of shrimp. The same study focusing on growth and feed conversion as well as protein utilisation efficiency is compliant with this study on nutrigenomics and general immune potential. The fact that a bioavailable silicic acid can significantly raise the water quality and environmental conditions such as the promotion of planktonic growth including the production of diatoms to generate a stable biofloc is implicit in these findings. Future work must be directed to assess other key metabolic
associated genes and to explore their involvement in optimising shrimp health and production under varying conditions. References available on request.

Our trial on shrimp has been published in Aquafeed Magazine April 2022

With significant results of our trial on shrimps in Thailand, we are proud to share this article, published by International Aquafeed with our audience. This specific and independently controlled study in Thailand clearly demonstrated that SiliFish® can significantly improve shrimp performance as measured by standard aquaculture metrics. All details regarding the trial method and more results on the elevation in total biomass and mean body weight of the shrimps and improvement of the quality of water you can read from page 38 – 44. #aquaculture #shrimps #casestudy #quality #foodchain #water #aquaticlife
