HUMAN PRECAUTIONS

 Wear chemical safety goggles.
 Wear neoprene, butyl, or vinyl gloves.
 Keep out of reach of children.
 Use only in adequate ventilation.
 Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.
 Wear suitable protective clothing.

EMERGENCY FIRST AID

In case of contact, immediately flush eyes or skin with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. Call a physician.

 Remove and wash contaminated clothing and shoes promptly and thoroughly.
 If inhaled, move to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. Call a physician.
 If swallowed, do not induce vomiting. Give large quantities of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person. Call a physician.
 Bring the package insert with you to the health care professional.

ENVIRONMENTAL WARNINGS
Do not discharge effluent containing this product into lakes, streams, ponds, estuaries, oceans or other waters unless in accordance with the require-ments of a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit and the permitting authorities are notified in writing prior to discharge. Notify the NPDES authority that a water quality benchmark for the protection of freshwater aquatic life has been derived for hydrogen peroxide by FDA following EPA guidelines. The acute benchmark value for hydrogen peroxide is 0.7 mg/L. Water quality benchmark concentrations are not discharge limits, but may be used by the NPDES authority to derive such limits for the permit. Additional environmental information on hydrogen peroxide and the benchmark value are available in an environmental assessment available at https://animaldrugsatfda.fda.gov/adafda/app/search/public/document/down-loadEA/123.

Mixtures with combustible or flammable materials may ignite easily, burn fiercely, or may explode in contaminated closed containers.
When placed in an unsuitable container, or introduced to other contaminants, elevated temperatures above 38oC (100oF) can increase the decomposition rate of the product.

 In case of fire involving this product, use water only.
 Heat or contamination may cause decomposition and result in dangerous pressure

In case of spill or leak, flush away by flooding with water applied quickly to entire spill or leak

DIRECTIONS

1. Dissolve 35% PEROX-AID® in culture water before addition to the culture unit to achieve required dose based on active ingredient. Consider using aeration to help disperse the chemical and to ensure adequate oxygenation levels.
2. Before treatment, remove dead eggs or finfish and clean rearing units to be treated.

The formula to determine the correct volume of 35% PEROX-AID® required for treatment is:

Treatment conc. mg/L (as H2O2)____ X treatment vol. (L) x 1,000 mL/L = ml of 35% PEROX-AID®

396,100 mg H2O2 / L 35% PEROX-AID®

1. FRESHWATER-REARED FINFISH EGGSApply 35% PEROX-AID® at the full concentration in the table below in continuous flow water supply of finfish egg incubation units for 15 minutes. Treat finfish egg incubation units once per day on consecutive or alternate days until hatch to control mortalities associated with external saprolegniasis in a tiered dosing system as follows:

USE SPECIES/CLASS DOSE (AS H2O2) DURATION (per day)
For the control of mortality due to saprolegniasis associated with fungi in the family Saprolegniaceae All cold and coolwater freshwater-reared finfish eggs1 500-1,000 mg/L 15 minutes
750-1,000 mg/L 15 minutes

1 An initial bioassay on a small number is recommended before treating the entire group. The amount of 35% PEROX-AID® required for treatment is dependent on the volume of water treated (which equals the water flow rate times 15 min; 10 L/min x 15 = 150L).
Example calculation:
500 mg/L (as H2O2) X 150L x 1,000 mL/L = 189 mL 35% PEROX-AID® 396,100 mg H2O2 /L 35% PEROX-AID®


2. FRESHWATER-REARED FINFISHApply 35% PEROX-AID® at the full concentration in the table (milligrams hydrogen peroxide per liter of culture water [mg/L; equivalent to parts per million (ppm)]) in continuous flow water supply or as a static bath in finfish culture units once per day on alternate days for three treatments.
