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.
