FIGURE 6 The body shape of freshwater prawns Macrobrachium rosenbergii is different to that of penaeid shrimp, as these cross sections of the 5th abdominal segments show. FIGURE 7 Freshwater caridean prawns can also be distinguished from penaeid shrimp by looking at the second pleura on the abdomen see arrow. Pumps can be powered by old diesel bus engines Thailand. More expensive pumps are used in some countries; this one is being used to harvest freshwater prawns Hawaii.
FIGURE 12 This hatching system consists of a litre rectangular hatching tank and two litre circular tanks, one for collecting larvae and one to house a biofilter. FIGURE 18 There can be a lot of wasted space around circular tanks but none is wasted between these rectangular larval tanks.
FIGURE 23 Whatever kind of hatchery tank drain you use, it needs to be protected by a filter sock to prevent the loss of larvae during water-changing operations. FIGURE 25 Tanks for storing hypersaline water and freshwater, and for mixing purposes at an inland hatchery in Thailand; note the roof and side covers for excluding aerial pollution and controlling temperature.

A comprehensive review of the status of freshwater prawn farming research, development and commercial practice, the book is intended to stimulate further advances in the knowledge and understanding of this important field. An extremely well-known and internationally-respected team of contributing authors have written cutting edge chapters covering all major aspects of the subject. Coverage includes biology, hatchery and grow-out culture systems, feeds and feeding, up-to-date information on the status of freshwater prawn farming around the world, post-harvest handling and processing, markets, and economics and business management.
Further chapters are devoted to the culture of other prawn species, prawn capture fisheries and the sustainability of freshwater prawn culture. Contributions to the book have been brought together and edited by Michael New and Wagner Valenti, themselves widely known for their work in this area. The comprehensive information in Freshwater Prawn Culture will give an important commercial edge to anyone involved in the culture and trade of freshwater prawns.

Readership should include prawn farm personnel, business managers and researchers, and invertebrate, freshwater and crustacean biologists. Copies of the book should be available on the shelves of all libraries in research establishments and universities where aquaculture and fisheries are studied and taught. The result is that the editors have been successful in putting together a comprehensive volume relating to topics relevant to the culture of freshwater prawn" Aquaculture International.
This is no doubt the best up-to-date book I have seen on the subject of prawn farming. Undetected location. NO YES.
