Feeding regimes is good for ammonia mitigation strategies

The source of ammonia in shrimp farming is from the feed inputs. One way to prevent ammonia accumulation is proper feed management, which specify the diet, amount and schedule.


The diet refers to feed type and the protein content, which determines the amount of ammonia released into the water. The amount refers to the feeding rate used in the system. Feeding rate must take into account the amount of biomass and target of average daily growth. The feeding schedule is the time and portion of the feed.


Feeding regimes need to take into account the needs of shrimp growth and the capacity of the water and pond bottom environment. This is done in order to prevent overfeeding, which leads to ammonia build-up in the water.
