DISEASE PREVENTION IDENTIFIED AS
OF THE INDUSTRY
Disease can wipe out an entire pond within 10 days.
The underdeveloped area of health management in aquaculture is a focus of interest and activity as the drive to increase food production for the growing global population intensifies. ViAqua Therapeutics took up the challenge to develop an orally administered particle-based platform for the delivery of RNA and protein treatments to improve resistance against diseases that attack shrimp and other aquaculture species.
The only proven method of prevention of viral diseases for shrimp today. A non-GMO, safe, and effective biological process in which RNA molecules shut down specific genes associated with the virus or disease.
An encapsulated RNAi particle in feed for efficient oral administration and delivery of the formulation. The ViAqua delivery platform protects the RNA in the aquatic environment and withstands barriers in the digestive system to deliver the RNA.
