  • By the late 19 sixties, the world's fishermen could no longer keep pace with the growing global demand for shrimp.

  • To solve this problem, commercial shrink farming was born and building on centuries old traditions.

  • Asia has become the modern hub of this intensive form of agriculture.

  • Shrimp hatcheries raised the offspring of their breeding stock through three level stages before selling them to shunt farms, which grow them to market size.

  • As this model demonstrates, the shrimp farm first purifies the sea water it uses through a system of treatment ponds containing fish that feed on micro organisms.

  • The treated water is then pumped to a culture pond in which the juvenile shrimp will grow to maturity.

  • This is what the shrimp looked like, that around two months old, shrimp farms are typically located on the coast, where they can access seawater easily.

  • Organic fertilizer is added to the bed of the culture pond before it's filled.

  • To restore the growing conditions toe optimal levels between harvests.

  • Seawater is pumped into the first treatment pond, where tilapia fish purify the water by consuming the microscopic plankton.

  • Plant matter and fish feces settle at the bottom of the pond, a pump moves water from this first treatment pond to a 2nd 1 for another round of this natural cleaning process.

  • A pump then transfers the water from the second treatment pond to the culture pond wants.

  • The pond is for juvenile shrimp.

  • Purchase from the hatchery could be released.

  • The water's oxygen level is carefully monitored on day oration.

  • Propellers air activated when it drops too low.

  • Weekly water quality test is made on samples drawn from the treatment and culture bonds.

  • Regular monitoring of the culture pond is vital because shrink feces and urine breakdown into ammonia, which is toxic at high levels.

  • The test solution reacts to the concentration of ammonia in the water sample, turning a shade of yellow or green.

  • A color chart translates this into a milligrams of ammonia per liter.

  • Reading another table indicates the safe, dangerous and toxic levels of ammonia.

  • If the reading is above safe levels, thehe Monje is diluted by pumping more treated water into the culture pond.

  • Once a week, a few shrimp are extracted from the culture pond on their livers are examined.

  • The shape of the organ is first assessed before it's viewed under a microscope to evaluate the fat content.

  • Ah, well shaped liver with sufficient fact indicates that the shrimp are in good health.

  • Growing shrimp are fed a natural diet, which includes probiotics tamarind, which is soaked in water.

  • I'm going.

  • These ingredients are added to the shrimps feed, which is a mixture of fishmeal, fish oil, soybean pulp on rice flour.

  • Tamarind maintains the right level of acidity in the shrimps.

  • Guard Theo garlic prevents bacterial buildup in the colon of the probiotic.

  • Solution provides beneficial bacteria, which prevent infections and improves the shrimps.

  • Digestion of nutrients.

  • The three ingredients are blended on liquefying before 100 milliliters of the solution.

  • A rounded per kilogram of shrimp feed four times a day.

  • The food is poured into an automatic feeding machine, which distributes it evenly across the culture bond shrimp feed over the entire 12 hour period, consuming up to 5% of their body weight.

  • After 4 to 5 months.

  • In the culture pond shrimp mature to market size, weighing in at 20 to 30 grams.

  • Once they harvested, the farm drains the culture pond to start the process all over again.

  • And there you go.

  • I hope I've given you all the facts.
