Culture of Penaeus indicus (Milne-Edwards) with different stocking densities.

K.Sriraman and R. Anantha Narayanan

Culture of white prawn Penaeus indicus with different stocking densities i.e. 15,000 nos/ha to 75,000 nos/ha was tried by giving prawn head waste as artificial feed in the Estuarine Fish Farm at Portonovo. Hydrographical parameters of pond waters like salinity, dissolved oxygen, pH, Temperature and depth have been studied and growth rate of prawn head waste in all the experiments has been explained. Stocking density ranging from 30,000 nos/ha to 45,000 nos/ha seems to be ideal based on the production rate.
