Management of feeding aquaculture species
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter teaches the reader to: differentiate the different feeding strategies in pond culture; learn feeding management methods such as stock sampling and record keeping, calculating daily feed ration, choosing appropriate feed size, and methods of applying feeds; understand the impact of feeding management on water quality and environment and on the cultured animal’s growth, survival, and feed conversion ratio; and describe the different feeding schemes used to culture fishes (milkfish, tilapia, rabbitfish, bighead carp, native catfish, sea bass, orange-spotted grouper, and mangrove red snapper; and crustaceans (tiger shrimp and mud crab). Other species for aquaculture stock enhancement (donkey’s ear abalone, seahorses, window-pane oyster) are also discussed.

Cheong, Leslie. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1988)The trend of fish production in Singapore is towards increasing contribution from marine and brackishwater aquaculture. Aquaculture production in 1986 represented 6.8% of local fish production. It is envisaged that this ...
Quinitio, Emilia T.; Parado-Estepa, Fe D.; Huervana, Joana Joy; Burlas, Michael Ray (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 2015)Widespread interest in mud crab species is increasing because these are highly prized both in domestic and export markets. Among the three mud crab species commonly found in the Philippines, Scylla serrata, S. olivacea, ...
Aqua-mangrove integrated farming: Shrimp and mud crab culture in coastal and inland tidal flats with existing reforested or natural growth of mangroves Triño, Avelino T. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 2000)Throughout the tropics, mangroves are being destroyed at an increasing rate for the development of aquaculture ponds. In the Philippines, for instance, mangroves were about 400,000 to 500,000 ha in 1918 but were reduced ...
