To support projected food demands, production must rise an estimated 70 percent above current values. Aquaculture can play a key role in raising food in limited space for feeding a growing population.
In southern Brazil, management data for Pacific cupped oyster culture were assessed to characterize production in relation to environmental parameters.
A recent study in Brazil tested the efficacy of nine commercial feed attractants for Litopenaeus vannamei. Condensed fish-soluble protein, an amino acid complex with digested bivalve mollusk, and whole squid protein hydrolysate stimulated the highest feeding responses.
In a study, the authors evaluated the stability of six commercial feeds under temperature and salinity conditions that occur at most shrimp farms in Brazil.
