The present invention relates to a system and to process of improving growth performance in fish by promoting gut maturation through the incorporation of bioactive compounds into fish eggs assisted by low-frequency ultrasounds.
The system of the present invention comprises a signal generator (1), a signal amplifier (2) and an ultrasound transducer (3) that is immersed in the sample with fish-eggs (5). Signal programming can be performed directly on the equipment or through a remote (USB or Ethernet) portable computer (4).
The process of the invention comprises providing in ovo stimulus with an adequate bioactive compound relevant for gut maturation assisted by sonophoresis.
By using early nutritional supplementation through sonophoresis in fish nutrition increase fish production efficiency and consequently decrease environmental impact.
The present invention relates to the field of biological sciences, fish nutrition, aquaculture, and electronics. [Image Omitted]
