Assimilation of aquatic macrophytes in Penaeus monodon.
MetadataShow full item record
The macrophytes Najas graminea and Ruppia maritima are common aquatic plants found in brackishwater ponds in the Philippines. The assimilation efficiencies of these plants by male and female Penaeus monodon (30-40 g wet wt.) were determined using the ash-free method of Conover (1966). Ruppia maritima was assimilated significantly better (70-76%) than N. graminea (40-47%). The assimilation efficiency values were significantly higher in the female shrimp for both plants.

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 ...
