Abstract

Stocking density determines the welfare, growth performance, and even survival of aquatic organisms in aquaculture. However, how stocking density affects cephalopods are still unclear. Here we selected Amphioctopus fangsiao, a promising cephalopod for mariculture, to examine the effect of stocking...

Welfare of African catfish: effects of stocking density, 2009, pp 137 pp.
Abstract

Grow-out culture of mud crabs Scylla serrata in East Africa is at an earlier development phase and is dependent on wild seed crabs. We assessed three different culture systems (net cages, ponds and pens) in three treatments (shelter, size and density) to evaluate survival and growth in small-scale...

Abstract

The present study was to explore the influence of stocking density on the growth, blood biochemistry, and antioxidant capacity indicators of Chinese perch (Siniperca chuatsi) cultured in the bank (60 cm× 60 cm×40 cm) based recirculating systems for 40d. Fish (average weight 175.76±15.85 g) were...

Abstract

Welfare in farmed fish got particular attention during the last decades from both governmental and public sides. In aquaculture context, welfare concerns are mainly related to handling procedures, water quality and stoking densities. In Europe, authorities had to clarify the threshold limits of ...
