Other Media | The Fish Site: A simple means to improve shrimp farming efficiency

Wednesday, March 03, 2021

Shrimp farmers could save themselves money and reduce their environmental footprints through the use of more efficient aerators and adoption of techniques for operating these devices more effectively.

So suggest the authors of a new study, which analyses the aeration devices used in six shrimp farms in Thailand, the amount of energy used to power them and possible alternatives.

Aerators, which allow for greater feed inputs and increased shrimp stocking densities, come in designs including the paddlewheel, vertical turbine, diffuser and venturi. In Asian shrimp farms, the authors note, it also is popular to mount paddlewheels on floats and drive them with a power unit installed beside the pond.
