The Culture Cold- Tolerant Shrimp: Proc. Asian-U.S. Workshop on Shrimp Culture
The temperate penaeids, most notably the kuruma prawn, Penaeus japonicus; the redtail prawn, P. penicillatus; and the fleshy prawn, P. chinensis, have been gaining attention from those interested in diversifying culture species in Taiwan, especially since the recent P. monodon production crash. In this paper, the culture practices for these three penaeids are evaluated and compared with respect to biological characteristics, larval rearing, growout, and marketing. Polyculture techniques and crop rotation are also discussed.
