Terramycin 200 for Fish Caution

Certain components of animal feeds, including medicated premixes, possess properties that may be a potential health hazard or a source of personal discomfort to certain individuals who are exposed to them. Human exposure should, therefore, be minimized by observing the general industry standards for occupational health and safety.

Precautions such as the following should be considered: dust masks or respirators and protective clothing should be worn; dust-arresting equipment and adequate ventilation should be utilized; personal hygiene should be observed; wash before eating or leaving a work site; be alert for signs of allergic reactions-seek prompt medical treatment if such reactions are suspected.

INDICATIONS FOR USE

FEEDING DIRECTIONS

SALMONIDS

For control of ulcer disease caused by Hemophilus piscium, furunculosis caused by Aeromonas salmonicida, bacterial hemorrhagic septicemia caused by Aeromonas liquefaciens and pseudomonas disease.

Administer medicated feed to provide a total dosage of 2.5 - 3.75 g of oxytetracycline per 100 lb of fish daily for 10 days (see finfish mixing directions below). If mortality is not reduced by the fifth day of treatment, the diagnosis should be reexamined.


Warning: Do not liberate or slaughter salmonids for food during treatment or for 21 days following last feeding of medicated feed.

Administer medicated feed to provide a total dosage of 2.5 - 3.75 g of oxytetracycline per 100 lb of fish daily for 10 days (see finfish mixing directions below). If mortality is not reduced by the fifth day of treatment, the diagnosis should be reexamined.

LOBSTER

For control of gaffkemia caused by Aerococcus viridans.

Administer 1 g/lb of medicated feed as sole ration for 5 consecutive days (see lobster mixing directions below).


Warning: Withdraw medicated feed 30 days before harvesting lobsters.

Mixing Directions-finfish

Note that feeding rates may vary depending on the size and health of the fish. Feeding rates should be chosen to ensure that all fish in the rearing unit are adequately medicated. Use the table below to calculate the amount of Terramycin 200 for Fish to use at your feeding rate.

* To calculate g Terramycin per ton finished feed at other feeding rates: (desired dose rate/feeding rate) x 2000

To calculate Terramycin 200 for Fish per ton at other feeding rates: g Terramycin per ton finished feed/200

Example: at a feeding rate of 2.5% (2.5 pounds per 100 pounds), with a desired dose of 3.75 g/100 pounds:

3.75 g per 100 lb/2.5 lb per 100 lb = 1.5 g per lb x 2000 lb = 3000 g Terramycin/ton

3000 g Terramycin per ton/200 g Terramycin per lb of Terramycin 200 for Fish = 15 pounds Terramycin per ton of feed

** To calculate total required medicated feed for the 10 day treatment period, multiply total estimated rearing unit biomass by 10 and divide by the pounds of medicated feed needed at your feeding rate

Example: at a feeding rate of 2% in a unit containing 5,000 pounds of fish biomass:

5,000 lb x 10 = 50,000 lb/100,000 lb per ton = 0.5 tons

Mixing Directions-lobsters

Mix 10 pounds of Terramycin 200 for Fish per ton of feed to achieve the dose rate of 1 g/lb.
