The Viet-Uc Seafood Corporation is the largest shrimp postlarvae (PL) producer in Vietnam. Brilliant innovation has led them to large-scale indoor farming of Pacific white shrimp, accomplished through a partnership with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).
The overall aim of the ambitious project was to increase the growth conditions and robustness of the shrimp to ultimately increase production yields, through the utilization of innovative technology. To do this, five commercial-scale experiments were established, providing the best possible conditions for the shrimp to thrive through health management and selecting breeding.
The project marks a point of reference for the future of aquaculture, proving a huge potential for state-of-the-art shrimp farms.
To establish and carry out such an innovative project, utilizing state-of-the-art technology was a necessity. Creating the future of aquaculture shrimp farming is perfectly aligned with the many advantages of UV technology.
To reach the overall goal of increasing production yields, it was necessary to manage the overall biosecurity risk. The wide range of benefits of UV technology made it a natural choice to implement UV systems, which are capable of complete disease control. As a result, the UV systems will have a vital positive impact on the general conditions of the shrimp, while avoiding bacteria outbreaks.
Utilizing the non-corrosive UV systems proved to have a massive impact on the biosecurity of the facility. Continuous data collection and analyses of the water proved that the UV systems could control the microorganism levels in the water.
The improved rearing technologies have resulted in a shrimp survival rate of over 85 percent, with the feed conversion ratio reduced to 1:3. Not only has the profitability of the rearing systems increased – it has also resulted in a reduction in water consumption and control of vibrio numbers, which is expected to improve long-term sustainability.
The amazing project is thus a statement of how amazing innovation can be executed through utilizing state-of-the-art technology, combined with extensive research and industry specialists. The project has shown groundbreaking outcomes, progressing toward more sustainable prawn farming in the future.
