Prawn domestication – the capability to survive radical change…

’nuff said.

farmed vannamei shrimp has low genetic variation and therefore low inbreeding risk…same same sums it up.

Now vannamei has been domesticated genetically the operational focus must be on the microbiome, quality zero stress husbandry and appropriate feed.

Used to be genetics the focus in prawn farming this past decade – now, going forward this decade, it is all about microbiome precision controlled farming systems.
