More R&D and investment is needed to address various ongoing issues in shrimp farming, including genetic improvement, nutritional requirements and feed ingredients, health management and other issues.
The domestication of green tiger shrimp (Penaeus semisulcatus) as a source for seedstock could help expand aquaculture in Egypt. Trials by the authors compared the reproductive performance of wild male/wild female pairings with that of pond-reared male/pond-reared female and wild
In analysis of nine strains of freshwater prawns, wild Myanmar and cultured India populations had the greatest allelic richness and expected heterozygosity.
In studies, bacteria and yeasts isolated from the native microbiota of wild shrimp at larval, juvenile and adult life stages were administered to early-stage shrimp via the culture water.
The production of early generations of domesticated broodstock in open-environment ponds may have hampered the domestication of black tiger shrimp.
Using clear-water tank systems, CSIRO and a collaborating farm have advanced the domestication of black tiger stocks in Australia.
The development of specific pathogen-free Pacific white shrimp and breeding led to rapid adoption of the domesticated shrimp throughout the Western Hemisphere and Asia.
