Survival, growth and production of Penaeus monodon Fabricius at different stocking densities in earthen ponds with flow-through system and supplemental feeding.
Penaeus monodon juveniles (P53-P54, 0.45 g) were stocked in 200 m2 earthen ponds with water exchange rate of 5-10% daily, and reared for 3.5 months. Stocking density levels of 2.5, 5.0, 10 and 20 prawns/m2 were designated as treatments A, B, C and D, respectively. Pelletized formula feed was given daily from the second week of stocking at 10% of biomass and was reduced bi-weekly by 1% to a final rate of 5% of biomass. Significantly, high survival was achieved in treatment A, 98.6% followed by B, 95.3%; D, 87.6% and C, 86.5% (P < 0.05). The final average body weight obtained varied inversely with stocking density. Mean body weight for treatments A and B were significantly higher than those of treatments C and B. Results also showed significant differences among all paired means of the final weights except between treatments C and D.

Mineral requirements of Penaeids Piedad-Pascual, F. (Institut Francais de Recherche pour l'Exploitation de la Mer, 1990)Marine shrimps absorb minerals from their aquatic environment aside from the minerals that come from the food they eat. Thus, the dietary requirement of shrimps for certain minerals will depend on the amounts and availability ...
