Study backs biofloc benefits in shrimp production

(02/11/19)

Biofloc systems could allow shrimp farmers to double stocking densities without impacting growth rates, according to the results of a new study.

Increasing stocking densities tends to cause chronic stress in aquaculture, mainly due to overcrowding and water quality deterioration.

However, bioflocs – made from a community of predominantly heterotrophic microorganisms which are stimulated to grow by manipulating the carbon/nitrogen ratio in water and adding an external organic carbon source – help to maintain good water quality by.....................................................
