This study showed that the use of a hypersaline system for shrimp culture with minimal seawater replacement can produce results comparable to those obtained in marine or brackish shrimp farming systems.
Hyper-intensive nursery systems for juvenile shrimp production present significant opportunities for shrimp farmers to increase profits. Nursery culture results in strong, healthy and uniform juveniles with great potential for compensatory growth when stocked in production ponds. Nurseries produce a maximum
Research at the Texas AgriLife Research Mariculture Laboratory is investigating ways to improve the economic viability of super-intensive raceways for shrimp production.
With relatively low use of land and water, intensive aquaculture systems can support much higher production than extensive systems.
Integrated shrimp farming is desirable due to its ability to provide food safety and traceability. Production planning is the most essential exercise in integrated systems.
The PescaMaris shrimp farm in Ecuador uses fish peptide isolates to accelerate probiotic bacteria growth and improve water quality.
In biofloc production systems, ammonia-oxidizing bacteria process ammonia to nitrite, which provides substrate for nitrite-oxidizing bacteria that process nitrite to relatively non-toxic nitrate.
