A study conducted with juvenile shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) reared in experimental biofloc systems used four treatments. Results indicate that differences in management and carbohydrate source can lead to substantial disparity in system function and production.
Liming is an important management tool for preparing aquaculture ponds between and during production cycles. Several products are sometimes used in aquaculture for liming production ponds, including agricultural limestone, calcium silicate (CaSiO3) and sodium bicarbonate (NaHCO3).

Intensive pond aquaculture (IPA) technology, a floating, in-pond raceway system developed in the United States, is being adopted fast in China, just three years after its introduction, says Jim Zhang, aquaculture program manager for USSEC-China.
A feeding trial measured growth, nutrient utilization and faecal/gut bacterial counts in triplicate groups of red hybrid tilapia (Oreochromis sp.). Study results show that dietary organic acids can potentially replace OTC as a growth promoter and anti-microbial in tilapia feeds.
The performance of a new fishmeal replacement product was assessed for Pacific whiteleg shrimp juveniles using various experimental diets. Results indicate that this plant-based, fishmeal replacement product could be used to replace significant levels of fishmeal in shrimp aquafeed diets.
Concerns raised recently by Dr. Claude Boyd may have been accurate a decade ago, but Seafood Watch Science Director Wendy Norden says the program has made significant progress and is indeed encouraging better performance in aquaculture.
Sino Agro Foods ha desarrollado un sistema de acuícola de recirculación de propiedad que genera altos volúmenes de producción y rentabilidad. La instalación debe contribuir significativamente a la producción de mariscos en China y a ayudar a satisfacer la creciente
