Dextrose as carbon source in the culture of Litopenaeus vannamei (Boone, 1931) in a zero exchange system
This work compared the use of dextrose and molasses as carbon sources for biofloc development, water quality maintenance, microorganism composition and growth performance of Litopenaeus vannameiExpand
Composition and abundance of invertebrate benthic fauna in Farfantepenaeus paulensis culture pens (Patos Lagoon estuary, Southern Brazil)
Annual Farfantepenaeus paulensis landings in Patos Lagoon are highly variable, and pen culture in shallow estuarine areas has been developed as an alternative for artisanal fishermen. However, thereExpand
The use of probiotics during the nursery rearing of the pink shrimp Farfantepenaeus brasiliensis (Latreille, 1817) in a zero exchange system
The present work evaluated the use of probiotics during the nursery rearing of the pink shrimp Farfantepenaeus brasiliensis, in a zero exchange aerobic heterotrophic culture system during 30 days.Expand
Use of molasses as a carbon source during the nursery rearing of Farfantepenaeus brasiliensis (Latreille, 1817) in a Biofloc technology system
The present work evaluated the use of molasses as a carbon source during the nursery rearing of Farfantepenaeus brasiliensis in a Biofloc technology system. During a 30 days trial, three replicateExpand
Development of the hepatopancreas and quality analysis of post-larvae Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei produced in a BFT system
The production of marine shrimp in biofloc systems has a low environmental impact; the shrimp benefit from the maintenance of water quality and possibly utilize the system’s microbial community as aExpand
Stable isotopes as a method for analysis of the contribution of different dietary sources in the production of Macrobrachium amazonicum
Macrobrachium amazonicum is the native freshwater prawn species with the greatest potential for captive production in Brazil. The stable isotope carbon and nitrogen technique (δ 13 C and δ 15 N) isExpand
Contribution of bioflocs to the culture of Litopenaeus vannamei post-larvae determined using stable isotopes
The aim of this study was to use preselected quality indicators for Litopenaeus vannamei post-larvae and the stable isotopes technique with δ13C and δ15N to determine the influence of bioflocs inExpand
The relationship between shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) size and biofloc consumption determined by the stable isotope technique
Abstract Biofloc technology (BFT) is considered one of the most promising methods for the sustainable development of shrimp culture. Bioflocs keep the water quality at good standards and represent aExpand
