On January 5, Associate Researcher Zhou Qunlan, Associate Researcher Xia Dong, Dr. Sun Cunxin, Freshwater Fisheries Research Center, Chinese Academy of Fishery Sciences, and Yu Yu, Director of Liyang Fisheries Station Water Law, Huang Zhibin, director of the Green Shrimp Office in Shezhu Town, Liyang City, and others went to Shezhu Town, Liyang City to carry out production testing of the green shrimp farming ponds fed with special feed for the green shrimp”Taihu No. 2″.
The production measurement is combined with the research work on nutrition and feed of the national shrimp and crab industry technology system and the Jiangsu green shrimp industry technology system undertaken by the Freshwater Fisheries Research Center. The expert team went to Shen Rongping Family Farm and Shen Junmin’s Family Farm successively to the farming demonstration households, and randomly selected 4 green prawn farming ponds fed with special feed for green prawn”Taihu No. 2″ for production measurement. The specifications of prawns and the individual weight and length of prawns were evaluated on the special feed for green prawns”Taihu No. 2″. At the same time, the team also tested the production of blue prawn farmers who fed other commercial materials to compare with the special feed for blue prawn”Taihu No. 2″. The production test results show that the proportion of commercial green prawns and prawns fed with special feed for green prawn”Taihu No. 2″ increased by 10%-15%, and the prawns increased from 141 per catty to 126 per catty, forming a good economy benefit.
During production measurement, the farmers highly praised the special feed for green shrimp”Taihu No. 2″ developed by the Feed Nutrition Innovation Team of the Freshwater Fisheries Research Center. The application of special feed for blue prawns not only increased the production of blue prawn farming, the size and proportion of prawns, but also increased the survival rate of blue prawns, bringing tangible economic benefits to farmers.
