Survival, growth and production of white shrimp Penaeus indicus in brackishwater ponds
MetadataShow full item record
This study was conducted in 4 one-ha ponds, 70-100 cm deep and 2 two-ha ponds, 40-70 cm deep to evaluate the survival, growth and production of white shrimp, Penaeus indicus stocked at 50,000/ha and cultured within a period of 90 days with supplementary feeding. It was observed that mean survival and yield per ha obtained were significantly higher in deeper ponds, 70.36% and 343.2 kg/ha, respectively, compared with those in shallow ponds, 37.50% and 180 kg/ha, respectively (P < 0.05). There was no significant difference in mean body weight at harvest for deep ponds (9.80 g) and shallow ponds (9.55 g). Results suggest that white shrimp production is better in deeper ponds than in shallow ponds.
