The effect of ionic concentration of low saline waters on growth characteristics of Penaeus vannamei


Author(s): Aruna S and Felix S

Abstract: Inland shrimp culture is being practiced in several regions of India. The culture of Pacific white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) in low saline inland waters faces several challenges. The ionic composition of these waters is generally deficient in several key minerals, including potassium (K+) and magnesium (Mg2+). Thus the study was carried out in three grow out ponds namely P1, P2 and P3 having different salinity as well as different ratio of calcium and magnesium to evaluate the growth performance of P. vannamei in low saline waters. It was observed that survival and growth rate of P. vannamei is in the order of P1>P3>P2. This study reveals that Mg:Ca concentration need to be maintained at 3: 1 ratio for the better survival, growth rate and production
