From PL onwards prawns swim forwards, dorsal side uppermost.

The farming of other species of Macrobrachiumnotably M. Further global expansion is difficult to predict, since it depends mainly on the volume of consumer demand.

The distribution of these age-groups determined at different hwtchery of the tank. It is often found in extremely turbid conditions. From metamorphosis onwards prawns can also walk, not only on the sub-stratum but also over damp areas including stones by river edges, up vertical surfaces small waterfalls, weirs, etc. However, the results of the second period for the five groups were: Although reared in captivity from macrobracjium immemorial, modern farming of this species originated in the early s when FAO expert Shao-Wen Ling, working in Malaysia, found that freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii larvae required brackish conditions for survival.


The presence of this new BC male then delays the transition of the next OC to the BC morphotype, causing it to attain a larger size following its metamorphosis. Viet Nam is a significant producer and exporter of farmed Macrobrachiumalthough its output is masked by being included in the statistical category ‘freshwater prawns, shrimps nei’.

This development spawned the first commercial jacrobrachium in Hawaii and elsewhere. External parasites that inhibit swimming, feeding and moulting; affect all life stages.

Blackwell Science, Oxford, England.

Whitish colour in striated tissue macrobrachiu tail and appendages; when advanced, necrotic areas may become reddish; affects all life stages. Abdomen has 6 somites, each with pair of ventral pleopods swimmerets.

In Cultured aquatic species fact sheets. Seven species have been diagnosed of Aspergillus flavusA.

Eyes stalked, except in first larval stage. As a conclusion of the observed results this prawn seems to be a pelagic feeding species. Males and females have different growth rates and males exhibit heterogenous individual growth HIG ; these are vitally important factors in grow-out management. Both Thailand and Taiwan Province of China became pioneers in modern giant river prawn culture.

Text by New, M. The production capacity was 53, Zoea larvae, 32, Postlarvae. This species lives in tropical freshwater environments influenced by adjacent brackishwater areas. Keywords water currents Macrobrachium nipponense movement behaviour. Rostrum long, normally reaching beyond antennal scale, slender and somewhat sigmoid; distal part curved somewhat upward; dorsal and ventral teeth.


But the results of group five were 3. Swimmerets of sixth abdominal somite stiff and macronrachium and, with the median telson, serve as hatfhery tailfan.

Abstract This study includes an experimental hatchery design for the prawn Macrobrachium nipponense from the brackish water of Basrah region Al-Mashab Marsh.

Furthermore, fewer poor quality products enter the international markets now that the technique for avoiding “mushiness” has become well-known.

Large wild-caught males Photo: The culture of Macrobrachium spp. The introduction of broodstock, initially from Hawaii and Thailand, into non-indigenous areas around the world began in the s.

Chinese production actually fell in but, as the global market expands, is expected to expand again later.

Thorax contains three pairs of maxillipeds, used as nippoense, and five pairs of pereiopods true legs. By the Hawaiian team led nip;onense Takuji Fujimura had developed mass rearing techniques for commercial-scale hatchery production of prawn postlarvae PL. In the first period, the results indicated that group one 0. The measures to combat these problems are referred to as improved husbandry IH in the table below, which records some of the more important diseases.
