Culture potential of SPF (specific pathogen-free) shrimp (Penaeus monodon) with special context of its growth and production performance in South-west coastal region of Bangladesh

Abstract: Culture potential of SPF (specific pathogen-free) shrimp (Penaeus monodon) was assessed for the period of 63 days in nine on station ponds of Brackish water Station from June to August 2015. Three different stocking densities were examined for each treatment viz.3 PL/m2 (T1), 5PL/m2 (T2) and 7 PL/m2 (T3). Water quality parameters were not significantly (P>0.05) different among the treatments except dissolved oxygen (DO). The growth and survival of SPF (specific pathogen-free) shrimp were higher in T1 than those obtained from T2 and T3 respectively and did not differ significantly (P>0.05). The final weight gain was significantly (P<0.05) higher in T1 than the other two treatments. Significantly (P<0.05) the lowest food conversion rate (FCR) was in T3 then followed by T1 and T2. The production was highest in T3 than those of T2 and T1 but showed significant (P<0.05) difference among the treatment. However, the highest net benefit was derived from T3 where the stocking density was 7 PL/m2. Meanwhile, the benefit cost ratio (BCR) of T2 found significantly (P<0.05) higher than T1 and T3 which implies that stocking density of 5 PL/m2 is more feasible than others. The present study reveals that, lower stocking density of SPF shrimp with short culture period would be appropriate to achieve higher growth, production and net benefit.
