Cultivation of live feed for the rearing of sugpo (Penaeus monodon) larvae
MetadataShow full item record
The sugpo, Penaeus monodon, is a very important prawn species in Southeast Asia. It is extremely euryhaline and fast growing. Interest in the farming of this prawn species is very high. Unfortunately, the supply of natural fry is not sufficient. It is, therefore, necessary to develop the technology of breeding them in captivity and producing sufficient seed material. The Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center, Aquaculture Department in Tigbauan, Iloilo, Philippines, operates a hatchery to produce fry for experimental rearing in brackish water ponds and for various laboratory studies.
