The impact of diseases led some Asian shrimp farming countries to develop biofloc and recirculation aquaculture system (RAS) production technologies. Treating incoming water for culture operations and wastewater treatment are biosecurity measures for disease prevention and control.
Green water, which describes the typical water color in tropical aquaculture facilities, consists mainly of various phytoplankton species along with bacteria, protozoa and zooplankton. It is relatively easy to produce without any supplemented nutrients.
The results of this study provide the first comprehensive evidence of the significant impact of dietary oils with different fatty acid class profile on the in vivo fatty acid metabolism of tilapia.
A large-scale integrated shrimp aquaculture park (iSHARP) project in Malaysia is approaching completion of its first phase. Biosecurity is a priority at iSHARP. The design of each unit allows individual modules or ponds to be “locked down” to prevent disease
There is much interest in the biology and artificial propagation of the Malaysian mahseer, both for conservation and aquaculture production.
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.
