Biofloc Technology (BFT) in the Prawn Farming…lots of catch all culture type links.

BFT as a production system for intensification has been shown limiting.

BFT being defined as any shrimp culture that needs a sedimentation (Imhoff) cone to measure biofloc of system.

Above 5kg/cbm super-intensive shrimp culture systems are moving away from BFT to RAS ( forget all the hybrid hype).

Microbially managed systems use biofilters and other techniques but don’t use or measure biofloc (no need the Imhoff cone)his article confuses BFT culture with super-intensive, RAS and microbial management systems.

This article opinion confuses BFT culture with super-intensive, RAS and microbial management systems.

Prawn Biofloc Technology (BFT) definition…

If you use a sedimentation (Inmoff) cone in your shrimp culture standard operating procedure then you are more than likely a biofloc technology (BFT) culture.

Every else who does not use an Inmoff cone is not.

That’s it. Simple.
