This study showed that a longer inoculation of probiotics will improve shrimp postlarvae growth and survival, and that a new technique developed for more accurately estimating postlarvae weight can significantly reduce the food that must be supplied.
Maintaining biosecurity and asepsis in larval shrimp production is a key component of the production chain in Ecuador, which requires the production of 5.5 billion larvae monthly from 300-plus hatcheries.
This study evaluated the relationship between the molting stage, age and osmotic stress in Pacific white shrimp postlarvae. The results indicate that osmotic stress tests should be done only with at least PL12 at the intermolt stage and that were
Stocking the best quality shrimp postlarvae, healthy and free of pathogens, is a critical management step with significant effects on the production and profitability of a shrimp farm.
Realizing higher growth rates in commercially cultured shrimp has many important benefits, including reducing various risks, cutting costs and increasing economic opportunities. Shrimp genetics primarily determines the amount of additional growth that can be achieved, as shrimp typically reflect their
Shrimp postlarvae acclimation before stocking into the various growout systems (ponds, raceways, tanks) is a critical – and often overlooked, sometimes taken for granted – step in the shrimp culture process. Various water quality parameters should be changed slowly so
The use of biofloc technology (BFT) is increasing in the commercial production of several important aquatic species, as it can increase production and efficiency and minimize the potential impacts of effluents. This study showed that BFT systems without water exchange
The authors performed a study to determine the tolerance of shrimp postlarvae to the crowding effects of high-density stocking in terms of production performance. Postlarvae were stocked in heavily aerated microcosm tanks with biofloc at 1,500; 3,000; 6,000 or 9,000
In a survey of Vibrio concentrations in white shrimp postlarvae at two inland farms, hatchery postlarvae were acclimated in water with salinity reduced from 30 and 5 ppt to 2 ppt at the farms. One farm stocked postlarvae in nursery
