    Vaname Shrimp Cultivation (Litopenaeus vannamei) on High Stocking Densities in Controlled Ponds
    Author(s): Andi Gusti Tantu*, Suryawati Salam and Muhammad Ishak

    Efforts to increase the productivity of ponds can be done by increasing stocking densities accompanied by providing excellent input and adequate technological support. Three stocking densities are 750; 1,000; and 1,250 individu/ m2, applied to ponds with an area of 1,600 m2 with water depth of 2.0 m, equipped with aeration systems in the form of windmills and root blowers, submersible pumps, automatic feeders, central drain and collector drain as well as wastewater treatment plants. The capacity of the aeration system is 500 kg of shrimp/HP biomass. Shrimp kept for 110 days. The results showed that the stocking density applied resulted in a final shrimp weight which was relatively the same range 15.50-16.45 (15.60 ± 0.40) g/individual with a daily growth value of 0.165-0.185 (0.17 ± 0.01) g/day. The production obtained is 13,714 kg; 18,285 kg; and 2.. Read More»
