The perils of overintensification in shrimp farming

The perils of overintensification in shrimp farming

Our office will be closed during 8 Feb., 2024 ~ 14 Feb., 2024 for Chinese New Year Holidays.

Over the last few decades, as shrimp farming has evolved, there has been a general trend towards higher and higher stocking densities to increase production. In Latin America, the term “technification” is often used to describe this process – through which, the adoption of various forms of technology are used to increase stocking densities.


When it works, the process of technification increases shrimp production per unit farmed area, resulting in greater global volumes of shrimp. However, it is only profitable when it increases the efficiency of shrimp production and thereby – most importantly – decreases the production costs.


The highly competitive export market is what drives innovation and quick reactions in the shrimp farming sector. Many farmers now look at technology to turn farms that are not competitive today into competitive farms tomorrow. We are hearing much about AI, about IoT, about automation as ways to increase efficiency, and – yes – maybe some technologies will increase efficiency. However, adoption must be accompanied by understanding and evidence that the additional costs will provide more efficiency and a return on investment.

Aeration is always essential requirement for aquaculture, in the era of soaring inflation and unsteady world situation influenced by Israel-Palestine Conflict and Red Sea Crisis, how to overcome surging cost is crucial. Pioneer Group develop new Energy-Efficient Bearing for various types aerator, no matter for smaller model with 2 or 4 impellers; or multi-impeller for 8, 10, 16 or over more impellers can be suitable. One of advantageous features of our bearing is power saving about 7% to 11% depends on different farming situation and using habit. The other features are the design with patented model which can reduce maintenance times and replace, and prolong the service life of the motor and reducer. Please feel free to contact us now to enhance electricity saving and promote sustainable aquaculture in your farms.
