Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution. All of these requirements can only be achieved if you are a holder of a Daily Parameter on Prawn/Fish Biological Requirements (DPP/FBR). Aquaculture is the raising of marine species outside from its natural habitat from hatching to maturity to marketable sizes, supported and back-up by artificial means of supporting its life in different biological requirement based on their habitat --- from estuarine to inner littoral to the outer littoral of the sea.

Aquaculture technology is a “Knowledge of Power” --- but it depends upon the source of your technology. Aquaculture is an arithmetic bugs, it Adds to your misery; Subtract to your pleasure; Divide your attention and Multiply like HECK!

Good day Zandro,

Having a prospective sea location site, you are million miles away from your desire to get into the prawn business. First and foremost Capital availability; 2nd your willingness and desire to live your footprints in the dikes of your would-be fishfarm; 3rd it is more advisable to take-over an existing farm let's say you can start with a half or one hectare pond. To do all this you need a mentor like us, through the kindness of this site, "Engormix" keep yourself posted on the development of aquaculture. For transfer technology feel free to email us at univalm@myway.com

Thanks for your interest of the industry,

Hi, im Rj Mariano. Im operating a shrimp farming in mindanao growing a BT Shrimp. Im very interested to learn more techniques and know-how about culturing a BT Shrimp. Right now, im still an extensive method type operator but im trying hard to achieve to become a fully intensive operator. I've begin introducing different aeration system to have a high survival rate of my BT Shrimps. I would like to ask if anyone can advise me about additional fertilizers to achieve a higher survival rate of my BT Shrimps.
