About this book

This book provides a comparison of marine shrimp culture techniques from around the world. This second edition focuses on growout systems that have contributed to the production success of shrimp farms and systems worldwide. Topics covered include: methods for the culture and preparation of algae, rotifers, "Artemia" and other foodstuffs for use in crustacean farms; recent developments on enriching larval food organisms to improve crustacean diets; conditioning and spawning penaeid shrimp; obtaining and manipulating shrimp eggs and sperm for controlled reproduction and use of intensive nursery raceways for juvenile shrimp production; and discussions of many types of marine shrimp growout systems. In addition, culture systems used in Hawaii, Ecuador, Taiwan and Japan are described in detail. Significant new information from Japan on hormonal control of penaeid shrimp maturation and spawning is discussed.
