Chilean fish farming taking an innovative step in controlling infestation of sea lice in salmonids

• ALPHA FLUX® from PHARMAQ, a new bath treatment for lasting prevention of infestation of sea lice in salmonids now available for customers in Chile.

PHARMAQ, part of Zoetis, today announced the launch of ALPHA FLUX® (Hexaflumuron 100 mg/ml) in Chile. The new parasiticide will help Chilean salmon farmers to control sea lice infestations, currently one of the major challenges for the industry.

"We have a continuous focus on bringing new and innovative products to the market, to support our customers in building a sustainable and profitable fish farming industry. Since the late 1980s we have been a major contributor to innovative products and solutions to the industry”, says Morten Nordstad, President of PHARMAQ.  “With ALPHA FLUX®,  we are applying our innovative science and focus on our customers’ most pressing challenges to find solutions for an area of high  need in fish health. Sea lice is recognized as one of the biggest threats to fish health and the main obstacle for growth of aquaculture in Chile”.

Hexaflumuron, the active pharmaceutical ingredient in ALPHA FLUX®, inhibits the synthesis of chitin, the structural component of the shell of the sea lice. Thus, the lifecycle of the sea lice is disrupted making it efficacious towards all juvenile stages of lice infesting the fish.

Guillermo Staudt, Managing Director PHARMAQ Chile, highlights that key efficacy studies in Chile showed a long period until next sea lice intervention following ALPHA FLUX® treatment. “Further, these trials did also show improved growth and fish welfare due to an extended period without sea lice infestations, less handling and fewer starvation periods.”
