Ovaprim®, the world leading spawning agent, is now the first legally marketed Indexed drug for ornamental fish Indexed by the US FDA. For complete announcement see our full Press Release. Ovaprim is Indexed (by the US FDA) for injection in ornamental finfish broodstock. It is a potent ovulating/spermiating agent to promote and facilitate reproduction of many species of fish. Ovaprim® is a stable solution that contains Ova-RH and a dopamine inhibitor. Time to ovulation following injection is highly predictable, with high egg fertility and viability. Ovaprim® utilizes the fish’s own endocrine system to safely induce maturation and coordinate spawning dates. When used in the normal spawning cycle, Ovaprim® can synchronize and coordinate maturation in treated fish by inducing maturation without affecting viability or fecundity. Ovaprim® has been tested and proven effective in a wide range of ornamental fish species. For more detailed information read the package insert.
Ovaprim is available in 10 ml bottles and ships as a non-hazardous product.
Use Ovaprim® to:
- Induce maturation within a spawning season
