Zero Water Exchange Intensive Shrimp Aquaculture

February 17, 2016

 

I currently have shrimp at 16,500/m3 in two, zero water exchange systems waiting to reach a 0.25 g size to stock into a 13K L zero water exchange research system at 350/m3.. Once stocked , a sensistive bionergetic model will be used to calculate very specific feed rates until harvest expected in July. Shrimp in Panama are selected for disease resistence and so growth is poor compared to genetics I previously used, but I am still able to increase growth by various methods compared to the unmanipulated population. I expect biomass to be over 6.5 kg/m3  as was achieved during the previous cycle.
