There are now a large number of companies producing a huge range of products aimed at improving fish health, water quality and nutritional aspects of feed. For several years Nam Sai has been providing research services to private companies to test their products. Nam Sai keeps all information confidential and can tailor research to a customer’s needs. Most trials are conducted within the regular farming system and the costs are very low, being designed to cover only the added costs of collecting data, doing statistical analyses, testing water quality and writing up the report. Companies that have done contract research at Nam Sai now include INVE Aquaculture, GePro Poultry Protein GmbH & Co. KG, Intervet Schering Plough, Phytobiotics Futterzusatzstoffe GmbH, Kiotechagil, Stirling Institute of Aquaculture and others. Nam Sai can also set up specialized research, not related to production on the farm and can organize manufacture of commercial feed containing test ingredients. Further information and a research quotation can be provided on request.
