The final article in a series about a project in Brunei to develop technology for production of black tiger shrimp focuses on the development of advanced grow-out ponds and practices with enhanced systems for biosecurity, sludge removal, water reuse, energy
A five-year project was undertaken in Brunei Darussalam to develop advanced technology for the production of large black tiger shrimp. A combination of technologies has enabled efficient production of large-sized black tiger shrimp, which could lead to a resurgence of
For a five-year project undertaken in Brunei Darussalam to develop advanced technology for production of large black tiger shrimp, a comprehensive disease diagnostic laboratory was developed to enable detection of known and emerging shrimp pathogens by molecular and histological methods.
Specific pathogen-free offspring developed from founder populations of P. monodon collected from Brunei coastal waters were introduced into a biosecure breeding program, where they have been reared to the fifth generation using family-based selection for reproduction and growth.
