High-tech shrimp farming with natural food – increase productivity, protect the environment

Efficient high-tech shrimp farming
Hi-tech shrimp farming – a sustainable way

Breeding with high productivity while still protecting the environment is probably what everyone wants to aim for. That’s why the farming model hi-tech shrimp Copefloc will meet that when shrimp are raised with completely natural food.

Waste treatment in shrimp farming

Perhaps in high-tech shrimp farming, waste is the top concern. If the waste in the farming environment is too much, it will lead to water pollution, affecting shrimp. Therefore, it is imperative to use measures such as using chemicals to clean. Nowadays there are new methods such as biological filtration, biofloc technology… but these technologies are quite expensive.

Therefore, Copefloc hi-tech shrimp farming is a safe direction for farmers when using natural feed, both improving product quality and protecting the environment, saving investment costs in technologies. clean. The advantage of Copefloc high-tech shrimp farming model is that it uses floc seeds and feeds shrimp with natural food instead of industrial feed.

How does Copefloc hi-tech shrimp farming work?

Food chain in high-tech shrimp farming Copefloc

High-tech shrimp farming Copefloc is assembled by copepods (crustaceans) and biofloc (floc particles). Copepod, crustacean is an important food source for shrimp. Biofloc is basically agglomerate particles of algae, protozoa, shrimp feces, waste.

Food chain when implementing high-tech shrimp Copefloc: Shrimp waste will be a source of nutrients for phytoplankton; bacteria and phytoplankton become a source of nutrients for zooplankton; Small crustaceans will eat zooplankton and plankton, small crustaceans become a source of nutrition for shrimp.

Copefloc hi-tech shrimp farming is completely self-contained, does not generate waste, so there is basically no need for a waste treatment system. Just arrange aeration system to provide oxygen for shrimp as well as other microorganisms in the pond.

Copefloc high-tech shrimp farming process

Preparing for high-tech shrimp farming Copefloc: No need to line the pond, no need to build a pit, no use of antibiotics, minerals, no need to nurse shrimp before stocking.

Aeration system: Using PVC pipes with bore holes with a distance of 25 – 30cm, forming a network that occupies 40% of the shrimp pond area, without using a fan system. Ponds are aerated continuously 7-10 days before shrimp culture.

Density: About 50 fish/square meter.

Food: No need to feed but just need to manage well, maintain natural food, manage biofloc in the pond. During the culture process, provide biofloc with bait and carbon into the pond.

Cultivate a natural food source

Cultivation of Copepods, small crustaceans and other organisms by fermentation with rice bran and probiotics. Copepods and other organisms should not be introduced into the pond from outside because they can bring pathogens from outside to harm shrimp.

Put the mixture of rice bran and probiotics into the pond by putting it in a long cloth bag and then transferring it to the pond, turning the cloth bag regularly to let the rice bran ferment with probiotics spread throughout the shrimp pond.

Create biofloc

Fermentation of 1 liter of clean water, 10 g of cereal flour (fish meal, soybean meal…), 10 ml of culture solution of pure strain Baccilus subtilis with density of 106 bacteria/ml. Strong aeration for 48 hours, pH 6.0 – 7.2, temperature 25 – 280C. After that, air bubbles form on the biofloc surfaces and the bait is put into the pond.

The biofloc content is always < 1ml to limit the accumulation of waste in the pond and add carbon to the pond by providing bagasse, cereal flour, grass straw...

Shrimp cultured by this method has shown to reduce the risk of disease and loss. For quality and fresh products. Cost savings due to no need to supplement shrimp feed. Bring huge profits, especially can protect the environment. This is a safe direction for farmers, so this model needs to be replicated to achieve the expected high yield in shrimp farming.
