Recent developments in prawn pond culture
MetadataShow full item record
This document presents the recommended methodology, nominal projections and partial costs and returns, for extensive prawn culture at two production objectives, and semi-intensive culture with costs and returns breakdown for three production targets. Intensive prawn culture procedures are not discussed. Extensive Prawn Culture System I projects a production yield of about 110 to 160 kg/ha/crop or more in four months and survival rate of from 65 to 70%. The extensive Prawn Culture System II aims for a production rate of about 230 kg/ha/crop in four months at about 70% survival with expected average body weight of about 25 grams. The procedures indicated have been verified and are now widely practiced. Production targets under the Semi-intensive Prawn Culture System I range from 350 to 500 kg/ha in four months at survival rate of about 70 to 75% and expected average size at harvest of about 28 to 30 pcs/kg. This method has been confirmed at different collaborative sites using the modified SEAFDEC diet developed by the Feed Development staff of the SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department.
