Aquamimicry – the new aquaculture paradigm has begun

Aquamimicry is the most advanced technology to the shrimp farming industry that provide natural live diets “copepod” for post larvae prior to stocking, pond water stability, enhances good survival rate, fastest growth rate, high profitable, totally sustainable and without any destructive to our mother nature.

During the past decade of shrimp farming, one of the major aquaculture industry, especially in Asia and South America region and it is projected to be one of the leading shrimp industry in the world’s future that has a very large domestic and foreign market demand. Shrimp farming environmental problems have been created in all farming locations resulting from the following factors:

Intensive shrimp farming management, a very high stock density within the ponds, up from 200,000 to 1,000,000 pieces of shrimp post larvae per hectare ponds could produce several tons of organic wastes within shrimp ponds environment, much organic wastes materials in their bodies are in the form of organic wastes compounds and those organic wastes cannot be utilized by the phytoplankton through photosynthesis. This organic wastes compound in shrimp farming is quite stable, and does not have a tendency to break into simpler utilizable forms. Oxidation of these organic wastes compounds depletes the dissolved oxygen deep in the shrimp ponds farming bottom sills, and formation of toxic metabolites such as hydrogen sulfide, methane, ammonia, and nitrite, thus contributing greatly to the mortality rates of shrimp farming.

Availability of left over feed and phytoplankton dead cells created the accumulation of undesirable organic wastes and toxic gases dissolved in the shrimp ponds bottom aquaculture shrimp ponds bottom is polluted and deteriorated.

When this occurs, shrimp pond bottom soils and in most cases, mortality occurs when the aquaculture shrimp ponds bottom is polluted and deteriorated. When this occurs, shrimp ponds soil become acidic, zoothamnium, damages gills (black or brown gills), burned and broken tails, affected metabolism, incidence of blue shrimp syndrome (due to nutritional deficiency),molting process is disrupted, and the onset of fouling, vibriosis and other virus diseases occurs, thereby causing mortality.
