Warning: Adding medication to feed is not legal for fish intended for human consumption.
The dosage of a medication added to fish feed can be calculated in two ways. In the first case, the dosage is based on a) the total weight of fish to be treated and b) the weight of feed needed for the prescribed treatment period. The other approach is based on providing a certain amount of active drug per unit weight of the feed. Dosage rate, active factors, and duration time are necessary for correct calculation.
The system will determine the quantity of active drug to be mixed with a desired amount of feed. Then the measured amount of the formulation will need to be mixed with a suitable carrier that will coat and adhere to the feed pellets. Gelatin or cooking oil can be used as a drug carrier for coating feed pellets.
