artificial feed for shrimp
As in the previous discussion, artificial feed for shrimp feed can be interpreted as made in industrial scale with nutrition and nutritional composition in accordance with the requirements provided for shrimp and food supply in ponds with natural food availability levels have been depleted / exhausted at all. The level of use of artificial feed is different based on the relative scale shrimp farming is applied, as will be described below:
1. In the traditional scale shrimp farming, the use of artificial feed is not / rarely used in the feeding patterns of the application. The use of artificial feed is limited to feed based on the ability of an individual pond management. The materials used in the manufacture of artificial feeding include: bran (bran), corn, flour and fish as a mixture rucah. This type of feed is usually used after reaching the age of shrimp harvested with an estimated population of relatively large shrimp.
2. In the semi-scale shrimp farming-intensive, the use of artificial feed is more focused on anticipating the occurrence of natural food shortages based on the estimated population of shrimp at that time. Artificial feeding is applied not absolute and are more likely incidental.
3. In scale-intensive shrimp farming, the use of artificial feed, especially the industrial scale is absolute as one of the shrimp farming management requirements. Dense stocking a relatively high shrimp is one of the basic ideas to consider. In addition the application of artificial feed is right on the scale intensive shrimp farming can help in estimating the condition and growth of shrimp in the pond
When compared with other types of shrimp feed, and industrial-scale artificial feed characteristics in terms of size and composition of nutritional value it contains. These characteristics made and determined by the manufacturer based on the nature of the industry and the needs of shrimp in the pond.
The size of artificial feed for shrimp is the size of feed pellets in accordance with the needs of the shrimp at the time and under certain conditions. Based on its size, artificial feed outlines usually can be classified into types:
1. Crumble, namely in the form of feed grains powder / fine grain and commonly used in shrimp young age.
2. Pellets, ie artificial feed in the form of small granules to coarse grains and commonly used in adult shrimp until shrimp harvest age.
Besides the size, composition is reviewed on the basis of nutritional content has made the feed formulation that is tailored to the needs of shrimp growth. Nutrients are usually present in the artificial feed such as: carbohydrates, proteins, fats, fiber and some other essential substances needed shrimp. The composition of these nutrients may vary depending on the size of feed and industrial manufacture. Under certain conditions of artificial feed is combined with supplemental materials (including vitamins) to overcome these deficiencies and required by the shrimp in a very much needed.
