Culture of blue shrimp, Penaeus stylirostris in Sonora, Mexico
MetadataShow full item record
The Centro de Investigaciones Cientificas y Tecnologicas de la Universidad de Sonora has been conducting research on the culture of the blue shrimp Penaeus stylirostris since 1972. Most of the programs carried out are related to intensive culture in the Puerto Peñasco facilities. However, some experiments on semi-intensive and extensive culture have been conducted since 1975. This paper describes the principal aspects of the technology developed; spawners, larval culture, nursery, growth, feed, environmental parameters, water supply and others. While in intensive culture it is possible to attain over 5 kg shrimp/m2, in semi-intensive systems about 1 kg/m2 is obtained. The intensive system uses raceways for the grow-out of shrimp, the semi-intensive and extensive systems use ponds.
