Introducing tilapia (GIFT) with shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in brackish-water rice-shrimp system: impact on water quality and production

  title={Introducing tilapia (GIFT) with shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in brackish-water rice-shrimp system: impact on water quality and production},
  author={M. J. B. Alam and M. L. Islam and To Phuc Tuong},
Mixed rearing of tilapia (Genetically Improved Farmed Tilapia, GIFT) with shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in brackishwater rice-shrimp system was assessed for its impact on dry season's shrimp production. The experiment was conducted in pre-selected farmer's field located at Paikgacha Upazila of Khulna district and designed with three different densities (treatment) of GIFT, viz, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5/m² with a constant stocking density of shrimp at 3/m². Each treatment had three replications. There had a…

Concurrent culture of shrimp (Penaeus monodon) and monosex tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) at different stocking ratio in brackishwater earthen ponds, Bagerhat, Bangladesh

Concurrent culture of shrimp and tilapia at a stocking ratio of 3:2/m may be suggested to disseminate at shrimp farmers’ level for increasing shrimp and fish production as well as high economic profit.


The experiment was conducted over 120 days from March to June 2019 in Bagerhat sadar upazila, Bagerhat. The study was categorized into four treatments indicated as T1 (ACI feed), T2 (Quality feed),

Effects of white shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) and tilapia nilotica (Oreochromis niloticus var. Spring) in monoculture and co-culture systems on water quality variables and production in brackish low-salinity water earthen ponds during rainy and dry seasons

The shrimp’ highest weight was recorded in the tilapia-shrimp co-culture ponds during rainy season due to higher water temperature and better quality of live food, leading to improved water quality and better utilization of nutrients in dry season than in rainy season.

The effect of tilapia Oreochromis niloticus addition on the sediment of brackish low-salinity ponds to white shrimp Penaeus vannamei farming system during the wet and dry season

The present study was carried out to determine the effect of tilapia Oreochromis niloticus on the physical and chemical sediment parameters on an earthen pond in monoculture (shrimp Penaeus vannamei

Research Article: Shrimp polyculture: An economically viable and environmentally friendly farming system in low saline coastal region of Bangladesh

The economic sustainability was found to achieve in polyculture of shrimp with carps and tilapia (Oreochromis niloticus) in terms of the Benefit-cost ratio (BCR), which was significantly higher than other culture systems.

Technical factors of water quality and sediment management in shrimp-tilapia polyculture in ponds

This review analyzes the benefits obtained in terms of water quality, sediments, environment, production increase, and improvement of zootechnical parameters of shrimp polycultured with tilapia fish.

Factores técnicos del manejo de la calidad agua y sedimento en policultivo camarón-tilapia en estanques

El policultivo de camarón-tilapia es una de las estrategias de mitigación para los impactos sanitarios y los efluentes en las granjas camaroneras. Su finalidad principal es incrementar la producción

Tilapia Farming in Bangladesh: Adaptation to Climate Change

In Bangladesh, aquaculture is critically important in terms of providing food and nutrition, sustainable livelihoods, income, and export earnings. Nevertheless, aquaculture in Bangladesh has faced



Production and economic return of shrimp aquaculture in coastal ponds of different sizes and with different management regimes

An on-farm study in three small, three medium and three large Ghers located in the coastal Southwest region of Bangladesh finds that the mean harvest weight of shrimp was similar in all Ghers, but survival rates were higher in the small and medium ones than in the large ones.


The survey revealed that shrimp production and economic returns from the two simultaneous poly culture systems and in sequential polyculture systems were higher than those in their respective shrimp monoculture systems practiced previously.

Growth, Survival, and Body Composition of Cage-Cultured Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus Fed Pelleted and Unpelleted Distillers Grains with Solubles in Polyculture with Freshwater Prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii

It is suggested that DDGS provides economical growth intilapia when fed as a direct feed and that polyculture of tilapia may improve overall pond efficiency in freshwater prawn production ponds, even at temperate latitudes.

Observation on some of the environmental parameters ofselected shrimp farms in Khulna, Bangladesh

In recent years, the ecological degradation, loss of technological sustenance and other multidimensional consequences caused by shrimp farming have made the experts and authorities bound to rethink

Effect of Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus (L.), size on phytoplankton filtration rate

The number of Microcystis and Scenedesmus units filtered from the water decreased significantly with increasing tilapia size, and the relation between filtration rates and the suspended particulate organic carbon (POC) concentrations were significantly different among the four sizes.

Effect of temperature and phytoplankton concentration on Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (L.) filtration rate

Filtration rates of both green algae and cyanobacteria increased linearly as water temperature increased and were significantly higher in the warm-water regime (26–32 °C) than in the cool- water regime (17–23  °C).

Filtration Rates of Catfish Pond Phytoplankton by Nile Tilapia Oreochromis niloticus

Diet-related research indicated Nile tilapia prefer blue-green algae, while filter-feeding fishes have been examined as biological controls of phytoplankton populations, and changes in species composition and dominance have been noted.
