Study shows it is possible to improve shrimp production in low-salinity waters by correcting magnesium and potassium deficiencies.
Ionic imbalance in low-salinity culture water may negatively influence shrimp survival and growth, and it is common to apply various mineral salts to low-salinity shrimp ponds.
In a white shrimp farm trial in a low-salinity environment, alternatives to fishmeal did not negatively impact the growth, survival or FCR of the shrimp.
Virginia Tech Aquaculture Research Group collaborated with MariCal to examine commercial feasibility of raising cobia in RAS under low-salinity conditions.
There is increasing interest in low-salinity shrimp culture in inland areas because it is thought that disease control is easier to implement.
