Maturation of different filter media using culture water

Sawant NS, Pathan DI, Pawase AS, Tibile RM and Desai PS

For the development of freshwater prawn farming, it is advantageous to have a freshwater prawn hatchery near inland area. With the help of artificial sea water (ASW) and filtration system operation cost can further be reduce to make it economically viable. In the present study, performance of different filter media ie. coir + bamboo (T1); perforated PVC pipe rings (T2); synthetic media (T3) was tested in artificial seawater recirculation system by analyzing water quality parameters of Macrobrachium rosenbergii larval rearing tanks. At the end of the experimental trials, it is concluded that artificial seawater with Bamboo rings and coir (T1) can be effectively used for production of Postlarvae of M. rosenbergii in distantly located inland areas.
