Acclimation of Penaeus monodon postlarvae to fresh water
MetadataShow full item record
Gradual acclimation of Penaeus monodon Fabricius to fresh water was conducted in glass aquaria and marine plywood tanks over a one-day, two-day, and three-day acclimation periods. Different stages of postlarvae were tested for their hardiness to acclimation. P35 postlarvae had a high percent survival of 98-99% while lower values were obtained for P20 and P90. A three-day acclimation period was favorable for all ages of postlarvae. Shorter durations of acclimation produced survival values as low as 20% This stress effect was apparent with P20 and P90 but not with P35 which showed high survival regardless of the length of acclimation.
