Portugal: P. Japonicus shrimp venture breeds profits

An experimental venture into the P. Japonicus shrimp business has yielded good profits. The shrimp’s market prices are four times better than for P. vannamei , more common in Portugal. The owner believes water quality management is critical. He uses only AIRE-O2® aeration. He explained, 'This species digs into sand and only comes out at night to feed. At night, we need the best environment in the bottom of the ponds.

Using the AIRE-O2® aerators, we get very good results in three areas of destratification: oxygen, temperature and salinity.' The owner studied aquaculture in Taiwan and has used other aeration types but believes the AIRE-O2® aerator offers the best performance.

AIRE-O2® aerators maintain critical water quality in the ponds.
