Integrated farming of broiler chickens with fish and shrimp in brackishwater ponds
MetadataShow full item record
An experiment on the integrated farming of broiler chickens with milkfish (Chanos chanos), tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) and shrimp (Penaeus indicus) in brackishwater ponds was conducted in 1,000-m2 ponds of the SEAFDEC Research Station at Leganes, Iloilo, Philippines. Tested were varying densities of tilapia (500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 for Treatments I-IV, respectively) with fixed densities of 5,000 shrimp and 200 milkfish per 1,000-m2 pond. Poultry houses were constructed at the middle of each pond so that fresh chicken wastes would drop directly to the pond. Each unit was stocked with 90 broiler heads of three size groups, or a total of 180 heads for 120 pond culture days. Stocking, transfer and harvest of poultry were done every two weeks. Results indicated an average net production of shrimp of 19.15 to 28.38 kg/1,000 m2; milkfish, 7.51 to 11.74 kg/1,000 m2; tilapia, 33.68 to 66.97 kg/1,000 m2 and chicken broilers, 180.90 to 217.39 kg/1,000 m2. Statistical analysis revealed that the best net production of tilapia was obtained at a stocking density of 15,000/ha.

Total production in 1992 amounted to 79,699 tons valued at RM 207.4 million. These figures are 23% and 25% higher than the previous year's. Semi-culture of the cockle ...
Sahavacharin, Songchai (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Coastal aquaculture in Thailand has expanded rapidly in both area and production in the last decade. The important cultured species are the shrimps (Penaeus monodon and P. merguiensis), sea bass Lates calcarifer, groupers ...
Aypa, Simeona M. (Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, 1995)Aquaculture is regarded as the most promising source of protein food in the years ahead. Milkfish and Nile tilapia are the major fishes now produced but groupers, sea bass, rabbitfish, red snappers, carps, and catfishes ...
