Mass production of Penaeus monodon Fabricius juveniles in earthen nursery ponds
MetadataShow full item record
Different culture techniques were tried for rearing larvae of Penaeus monodon , in order to obtain preliminary data on stocking density, water management, fertilization versus feeding and effect of different types of vertical substrate. The results of the experiments showed that: (1) older fry have greater chances of survival; (2) the traditional nursery pond designs and practices used for milkfish in the Philippines are applicable to prawn only at very low densities and give acceptable high survival rates only when used with the older postlarval stage.
