Biofloc Technology for High Intensity Indoor Shrimp Farming

Basics of setting up an High intensity indoor shrimp (L Vannamei) farming unit with Biofloc Technology

Biofloc Technology has been a game-changing method in culturing species like L Vannamei (Pacific White Shrimp), Tiliapia, Jade Perch, Tiger Shrimp, and many more. Substantial savings are obtained by adopting this method, as the biofloc technology provides additional nutrients to the culture species. Furthermore, the biofloc technology enables farms to adopt a zero water exchange method and greatly improves their bio-security.

What you’ll learn

  • The profitability of setting up your own indoor shrimp farming using biofloc technology.
  • Basics of understanding the application of biofloc technology used in the culture of L Vannamei.
  • Practical knowledge on operating a High Intensity Indoor Biofloc Shrimp Farm.
