Shrimp nursery systems offer an important opportunity to increase profits. Properly designed and operated nurseries are highly biosecure facilities to grow postlarvae at very high densities.

El alcanzar mayores tasas de crecimiento en el camarón cultivado comercialmente tiene muchos beneficios importantes, incluyendo la reducción de varios riesgos, la reducción de costos y el aumento de las oportunidades económicas. La genética del camarón determina principalmente cuanto crecimiento
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
Uneaten or undigested feed and their metabolic byproducts contribute to declines of water quality in aquaculture systems. Accordingly, feed and feeding techniques require continuous review. Reducing overfeeding is an important opportunity for improving feed conversion ratios.
Incorporating feed manufacturing into an aquaculture business offers greater and more efficient product access, control and logistics, as well as additional profit potential. A feasibility study that plans for growth and includes both a business plan and economic analysis is
Feed trays are typically used to avoid overfeeding in aquaculture production systems. They are sometimes used to deliver 100 percent of the feed that is fed, and other times a small number of trays are used as a guide to
Since shrimp production facilities vary in size, construction and many other factors, the establishment of performance standards can be challenging.
Continuous improvement is a critical strategy required for the success of any business, including shrimp farming. Routine programs for farm feed trials that incorporate best practices can contribute to better decision making and a faster improvement.
The authors conducted studies to test the performance of young shrimp postlarvae in systems with different approaches to aeration and water handling. Proactive management through proper feed applications and water quality control were critical elements.
