Shrimp farms generate non-hazardous solid waste. Use of a sanitary trench helps comply with environmental legislation, improves biosecurity and minimizes contamination risks.
Several large shrimp farms in Latin America, originally built to operate using significant, flow-through water exchange with the surrounding environment, have been retrofitted to a recirculating operation mode. This modification provides numerous benefits, including improved biosecurity.
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.
