Abstract

Relative performance of stocking densities and types of artificial shelters in the nursery production of the giant freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii in net cages was assessed. For the effects of stocking density, giant freshwater prawn juveniles (mean= 0.2 g ±0.001) were cultured in 12...

Abstract

Optimizing stocking density and increasing shelters have been thought as strategies to enhance the performance of crayfish culture. In this study, indoor controlled experiments were carried out to determine the effects of different levels of stocking density (i.e., 50, 100 and 150 ind..m-2) and...

Abstract

Heterogeneous growth is a major concern for the intensive culture of prawns. Social interaction is believed to be one of the major contributions to the dispersed prawn size. We used net-chasing training to improve the size homogeneous of freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii reared at high ...

Abstract

The addition of artificial shelters of various materials has been used in Macrobrachium rosenbergii tanks and ponds as a means of increasing productivity. The present study investigated the shelter colour preference of M. rosenbergii postlarvae (age 15-18 days after metamorphosis) in the...

Abstract

The objective of this research was to evaluate the growth, oxidative stress and HSP70 of pacific white shrimp under differentstocking densities. Juvenile shrimps(average weight 2 g) were stocked under three densities (30, 40, 50 ind/cage, expressed as S30, S40 and S50 respectively) for 60 days. All ...

Abstract

We evaluated the effect of stocking density on the concentrations of oxy-hemocyanin and lactate in hemolymph, the antioxidant ability of the hepatopancreas, and the biochemical composition in large and small individuals of the prawn Macrobrachium nipponense (de Haan, 1849) cultured in a cage...

AbstractFull Text

To develop the intensive breeding technology of the seed of the red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkii, the survival rates, hatching effects (hatching rate, incubation level, and number of juveniles), and immune performance of ovigerous P. clarkia as well as economic benefits are evaluated under...

Abstract

Identifying correct stocking densities is an important concern for shrimp farming especially when intensification of shrimp production is growing in order to meet increasing demand. Increased stocking densities generate greater competition among individuals, reduced feeding efficiencies and...

Abstract

This experiment was conducted to compare water quality, growth performance, body composition, and insulin growth factor gene expression of Pacific white shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, reared under different stocking densities (100, 200, 300, and 400 shrimp m-3) in a biofloc system with zero-water...

Abstract

Applied ethology can help to improve Litopenaeus vannamei aquaculture. Our purpose was to demonstrate an influence of stocking density on behaviour. The shrimp were first distributed in aquaria and observed via an ad libitum observational method to construct an ethogram of social and feeding...
