The process of moulting (shredding) in shrimp is considered to be of the highest significance. In order for moulting to occur naturally and smoothly in the shrimp all the minerals must be available and suitable for extraction by osmoregulation. In addition, the management of factors and cofactors at the time of moulting must be efficiently regulated. The Moltmaster is designed with the necessary minerals, amino acids and enzymes in place to enable the moulting process in shrimp.
