MICROBE-LIFT® Technology Helps Maintain High Quality Water in Prawn Hatchery in Malaysia - AQUACULTURE
Fajar Prawn Hatchery, Manjung, Perak State, Malaysia
Fajar Prawn Hatchery is a 20-tank fry hatchery, which is located in the middle of Manjung District, Perak State, Malaysia. Since 2000, they hatch only White Shrimp fry. The hatchery operator Mr. Tan Kim Bak said he buys the Nauplius (see figure 2) from another company and hatches to post larvae stage and then sells to shrimp farmers.
Mr. Tan Kim Bak had been using a competitive aquaculture bacterial product for the shrimp hatchery, specifically Bacillus Plus II from Thailand. After he was approached by an international partner of Ecological Laboratories Inc., he agreed to run a comparative test between MICROBE-LIFT® technology and the competitive product.
The objective was to maintain cleaner water for healthier fry for improved growth and subsequent transfer and restocking.
