A study aimed to determine safe levels of ammonia and nitrite to various life stages of the Amazon river prawn, based on the hypothesis that the early stages of development of M. amazonicum are more sensitive to ammonia and nitrite
In a 60-day study, Amazon River prawn postlarvae stocked in pens within a culture pond were given commercial feed or received no feed beyond the natural organisms in the pond.
Low-input culture practices for freshwater prawns can manage their growth and biological characteristics so they can be fed no fishmeal or fish oil.
A practical way to treat mariculture effluents combines the physical attributes of a sand filter and the biological properties of hungry marine sand worms.
The inadequate supply of postlarvae is a bottleneck for prawn production in Bangladesh. A shortage of wild broodstock to supply the hatcheries is an ongoing concern.
