So back in December we defined intensiveness but with one caveat – we did not include depth and therefore size of footprint.
From here on in we counsider shrimp should remain under aper square metre definition for productivity and not like a volumetric fish calculation….
Example is that a per cubic metre could have a footprint of 3 sqm if the water is only 33cms deep.
To redefine then – semi-intensive shrimp culture can be now considered at 4MT/hectare per harvest. That’s stays the same.
Intensive as being up to 5kg/sqm per cycle.
Super-intensive as 5 -15 kg per square metre per cycle.
With hyper-intensive above 15 kg per square metre.
All understood then.
