Intensive culture and feed development in Penaeus japonicus
The economic feasibility of shrimp culture with high productivity of over 10 ton/ha/crop is still under evaluation in some research institutes. However, there is one exception. In a limited area in Japan, there are 63 tanks that are actually in operation and are commercially productive. One of the trials to grow Penaeus japonicus is herewith introduced to represent the intensive culture of penaeid shrimp. Tank design, feeding, growth, survival, water management, cost analysis and disease are described. In addition, an illustration of successful semi-intensive culture in earthen ponds is shown to help explain how to intensify and stabilize production.
