Activated sludge water conditioning, biofloc culture systems and feed going into shrimp operations are sludge generators.
The target of a well run vannamei protein shrimp operation is that there should be no sludge wastes. Any waste comes at a cost.
Generating sludge is wasteful and takes up energy that could otherwise be converted into shrimp.
What goes in must come out as shrimp
Shrimp RAS – as zero sludge operations. That’s the aim.
