Lobsters: Thoroughly mix 5 kg of TERRAMYCIN-AQUA* with 995 kg of complete lobster feed to obtain a medicated feed with an oxytetracycline hydrochloride concentration of 0.22% (2200 mg/kg). The medicated feed can be prepared in the form of meal or pellets.

Feeding Directions

Salmonids: The medicated feeds are to be fed as the sole ration for 10 consecutive days. If mortality is not reduced by the fifth day of treatment, the diagnosis should be re-evaluated.

Lobsters: Feed as the sole ration for 5 consecutive days following the introduction of each new batch of lobsters into a confinement area. Feed to appetite at approximately 1 kg of medicated ration per 450 kg of lobsters per day.

Warning

Salmonids: Treated fish must not be liberated or slaughtered for use in food for at least 40 days (when the water temperature is 10°C or higher) or 80 days (when the water temperature is below 10°C) after the latest treatment with this drug.

Lobsters: Treated lobsters must not be marketed for use in food for at least 30 days after the latest treatment with this drug.

Terramycin-Aqua Caution

(1) In fish and lobster feeds having a high ash content, ions of Ca, Fe, Cu, and Zn may bind with oxytetracycline, retarding its absorption from the gut.

(2) Do not use in feeds containing the pellet-binding agent bentonite.

Storage

Store in a cool, dry place.
