Performance of Pacific white shrimp in biofloc with different light regimes

A study determined the zootechnical performance of Pacific white shrimp under different light regimes. Shrimp exposed to light had better zootechnical parameters than those with reduced or no exposure.

Probando un sistema intensivo de criadero de camarones con tecnología biofloc

El uso de la tecnología de biofloc (BFT) está aumentando en la producción comercial de varias especies acuáticas importantes, ya que puede aumentar la producción y la eficiencia y minimizar los posibles impactos de los efluentes. Este estudio mostró que los sistemas BFT sin recambio de agua y suplementados con melaza o dextrosa como fuente de carbono producen un rendimiento y calidad de agua adecuados durante la fase de criadero de L. vannamei.

Testing an intensive shrimp hatchery system using biofloc technology

The use of biofloc technology (BFT) is increasing in the commercial production of several important aquatic species, as it can increase production and efficiency and minimize the potential impacts of effluents. This study showed that BFT systems without water exchange and supplemented with molasses or dextrose as a carbon source yield adequate production and water quality during the hatchery phase of L. vannamei.
