Company Profile, Products & Technologies, Target Market:

AquaMor Technologies is an Israeli company that provides cost-effective solutions to the aquaculture industry. AquaMor's solutions are based on innovative formulations of organic compounds derived from plants and proved in field tests and in operational use. Dany Neifeld and Dr. Raanan Ariav, AquaMor's founders, combine entrepreneurial experience, expertise in fish health management and many years of experience in implementing innovative products and techniques in aquaculture.

AquaMor is developing 4 different lines of products, all designed to improve health conditions of fish and other aquatic species.

  • Liquid formulation for treatment and prevention of bacterial, parasitic and fungal diseases
  • Slow-release formulation for long-term prevention of bacterial, parasitic and fungal diseases
  • Liquid formulation for induction of anesthesia in fish
  • Feed additive formulation

Brief description of proposed R&D project:

AquaMor's technology is based on plant extracts and formulations whose main purpose is prevention of diseases in fish and other aquatic species. The products are applied to the feed and the water in which fish and other aquatic species are grown.

AquaMor's main R & D project is focused on development of a unique feed additive and immune enhancer for Fish and Shrimp.

Based on Singapore's reputation as a leading worldwide producer ofedible and ornamental fish, we would like to establish a long-term cooperation with a Singapore based company for the purpose of joint R&D work that may lead to joint marketing and commercialization of our aquaculture products in South – East Asia.

Role of Requesting Company in Proposed R&D Project:

- Definition of target species which are of economic interest (e.g. shrimp, pangasius, tilapia) 
- Definition of the application stadium (larvae pp.) 
- In Vitro testing of several AquaMor formulations: (Bacteriology) 
- In – Vivo testing (wet – lab) of several AquaMor formulations: 
      o Effect on performance: 
      o Effect on disease resistance: 
- In – Vivo testing (field) of several AquaMor formulations: 
      o Effect on performance: 
      o Effect on disease resistance: 
- Testing of formula in the following species: 
      o Tilapia:
