What is a finfish allergy

APPLICATION TO TANKS AND RACEWAYS — Turn off water supply, provide aeration, apply appropriate quantity of PARASITE-S, and thoroughly dilute and stir to guarantee equal distribution of PARASITE-S. Treat for up to 1 hour for fish and up to 4hours for penaeid shrimp, then drain the solution and refill the tank with unused, well- aerated water. While tank is under treatment, adequate oxygen must be present to maintain the fish or shrimp. If needed, aeration should be provided to prevent oxygen depletion. Treatments may be repeated daily until parasite control is achieved.

APPLICATION TO PONDS — Apply greatly diluted PARASITE-S to the pond evenly using a pump, sprayer, boat bailer, or other suitable device to guarantee even distribution.

Permit PARASITE-S to dissipate naturally. Single treatments generally control most parasites, but may be repeated in 5 to 10 days if needed.

Treatments for Ichthyophthirius should be made at 2-dayintervals until control is achieved.

APPLICATION TO EGG INCUBATORS — Apply PARASITE-S into a constant water supply flowing around the eggs. A drip or pressure system should be used and timed. Apply PARASITE-S under the surface of the water flow. Egg tanks may be treated as often as necessary to prevent growth of fungi.

USER SAFETY WARNINGS

Use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including eye, respiratory, and skin protection while handling this product.

Refer to the SDS and OSHA regulations (29 CFR 1910.1048) for guidance on the most appropriate PPE equipment. Failure to use PPE may increase the risk of unsafe exposure to formaldehyde.

Exposure to high concentrations of formaldehyde vapor causes severe respiratory irritation which can be life- threatening. Lower vapor levels can cause irritation to the eyes, respiratory tract, and skin. Swallowing formaldehyde can be life-threatening.

Formaldehyde is an irritant when splashed on skin or into the eyes. It can cause severe eye damage, even blindness.

Keep out of reach of children.

In laboratory animals, formaldehyde has demonstrated the potential to cause reproductive and developmental toxicities at high dose.

Use only with adequate ventilation. Hold container tightly closed when not in use.

May aggravate a pre-existing asthmatic condition and allergic rhinitis.

Moderate fire and explosion hazard exist when exposed to heat or flame.

Contains methanol — cannot be made non-poisonous. Prolonged exposure to methanol has been associated with reproduction disorders.

May Cause Cancer: Formaldehyde vapor may be carcinogenic if inhaled. Use applicable safety protection.

(Note: This drug, used as labeled, does not cause formaldehyde tissue residues in fish).

Employers: Refer to Occupational Safety and Health istration (OSHA) regulation 29 CFR 1910.1048 for human safety guidance that may be applicable to your specific operation.

OSHA’s “action level” concentration for airborne formaldehyde is 0.5 part per million (ppm), calculated as an 8-hour time-weighted average (TWA).

What is a finfish allergy

Use respiratory, skin, and eye protection when needed (refer to OSHA’s regulation 29 CFR 1910.1048). OSHA’s airborne exposure limits (without use of a respirator) for formaldehyde shall not exceed 1) 0.75part per million (ppm) as an 8-hour, time-weighted average (TWA) or 2) 2 parts per million (ppm) as a 15-minute, short term exposure limit (STEL). NOTE: The odor of formaldehyde in the air can generally be detected at about 0.5 to 0.8 ppm (range about 0.05 to 1 ppm).


User Exposure Emergency Aid

INHALATION (Breathing): Get medical aid immediately.

What is a finfish allergy

Remove victim from exposure wearing protective clothing and respiratory protection appropriate to the type and degree of contamination. Move victim to unused air immediately. If breathing is hard, give oxygen. DO NOT use mouth-to-mouth respiration. If breathing has ceased, induce artificial respiration with the aid of a pocket mask equipped with a one-way valve or other proper respiratory medical device. If no respiratory device is available, act out chest compressions only.

INGESTION (Swallowing): DO NOT induce vomiting. If the person is conscious, dilute, inactivate, or absorb the formaldehyde by giving milk, activated charcoal, or water.

Get medical assist immediately. If vomiting occurs, hold head lower than hips.

EYE CONTACT: Immediately flush eye(s) with large amounts of water for at least 15minutes, lifting the lower and upper eyelids occasionally, until no evidence of chemical remains. Seek medical attention immediately. DO NOT permit victim to rub eyes or hold eyes closed for burns to eyes may own a delayed effect.

SKIN CONTACT: Remove contaminated clothing (including shoes) immediately. Wash affected area of body with soap and large amounts of water until no evidence of chemical remains (at least 15 minutes).

If there are chemical burns, or appreciable eye or respiratory irritation, get medical assist immediately.

FOR USE ON Every CULTURED FINFISH, PENAEID SHRIMP, AND Every FINFISH EGGS

INDICATIONS FOR USE:

1. Parasiticide for Every Finfish: for the control of external protozoa (Chilodonella spp., Ichthyobodo spp., Epistylis spp., Ichthyophthirius spp., Ambiphrya spp., and Trichodina spp.), and the monogeneans (Cleidodiscus spp., Dactylogyrus spp., and Gyrodactylus spp.).

2. Parasiticide for Penaeid Shrimp: for the control of external protozoan parasites (Bodo spp., Epistylis spp., and Zoothamnium spp.).

3. Fungicide for Finfish Eggs: for the control of fungi of the family Saprolegniaceae.

4. Fungicide for Freshwater-reared Finfish: for the control of mortality due to saprolegniasis associated with fungi in the family Saprolegniaceae


Precautions

Store PARASITE-S indoors away from direct sunlight, heat, sparks, and open flames, and ventilate storage area.

Do not subject PARASITE-S to temperatures under 40°F (4.4°C).

PARASITE-S subjected to temperatures under 40°F causes the formation of paraformaldehyde, a substance which is toxic to fish. Paraformaldehyde can be recognized as a white precipitate at the bottom or on the walls of the container.

Tolerance to PARASITE-S may vary with strain and species of fish, eggs and shrimp. While the indicated concentrations are considered safe for the indicated use, a little number of each lot to be treated should be used to check for any unusual sensitivity to PARASITE-S before proceeding.

Under some conditions, fish or penaeid shrimp may be stressed by normal treatment concentrations. Heavily parasitized or diseased fish or penaeid shrimp often own a greatly reduced tolerance to PARASITE-S.

Such animals do not tolerate the normal tank treatment regimen the first time they are treated. Therefore, time and dosage may need to be reduced. If they show evidence of distress (by piping at the surface), the solution should be removed and replaced with unused, well aerated water. Careful observations should always be made throughout the treatment period whenever tank or raceway treatments are made. Treatment should never exceed 1 hour for fish or 4 hours for penaeid shrimp (even if they show no sign of distress), nor should it exceed 15 minutes for fish eggs.

Do not apply PARASITE-S to fish ponds, tanks, or raceways with water warmer than 80°F (27°C), when a heavy bloom of phytoplankton is present, or when the concentration of dissolved oxygen is less than 5mg/L (ppm). Do not apply to penaeid shrimp ponds when the concentration of the dissolved oxygen is less than 3 to 4 mg/L (ppm). PARASITE-S may kill phytoplankton and can cause depletion of dissolved oxygen. If an oxygen depletion occurs, add unused, well-aerated water to dilute the solution and to provide oxygen. Use with caution in recirculating aquaculture systems due to potential for impacts on the biofilter. Monitor water quality parameters (e.g., ammonia, nitrate) during and after treatment.

Consider bypassing biofilter if possible.

What is a finfish allergy

After treatment, the system should be flushed and replaced with untreated water before reconnecting the biofilter.
