In less intensive shrimp culture systems, polychaetes are known to be a major food item of several penaeid species. Under these conditions, very little is known about their population dynamics and the possible interactions with penaeid predation and artificial feeding. This work examined the effects of Penaeus subtilis, predation, stocking density and supplemental feeding on the population dynamics of polychaetes in pond enclosures. The work was conducted in a shrimp pond, where forty-five 9-m… CONTINUE READING
