Environment-friendly schemes in intensive shrimp farming
The manual details the procedures of intensive shrimp farming but with provisos for the treatment of sludge and water. These provisos include (1) the use of water reservoir where pond water is stored for at least a week before being used in the grow-out ponds, (2) the use of a “tail” pond to hold drained water so it can be treated and recycled, (3) the use of long-arm paddle wheel so water aeration-circulation is made more efficient, and (4) the use of fishes to help condition the water and substantially produce green water.
