Nutreco invests in ViAqua to combat disease in the shrimp market

Amersfoort, July 4 – Nutreco announces today that it has invested in Israeli startup ViAqua as part of its focus on combatting disease in the aquaculture industry.

ViAqua is developing the first orally-administered treatment for shrimp that improves resistance to viral diseases, including White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV), and prevents viral epidemics. Nutreco has taken a meaningful minority share that will conditionally grow over time.
