Shrimp Hatchery broodstock is selected for a balance of traits to assure excellent performance under a variety of conditions at the hatchery and farm
Selection is conducted to both among and within shrimp families. to maximize the genetic gain with minimal inbreeding
Shrimp Hatchery broodstock are selected for a balance of traits to guarantee the excellent performance under a variety of conditions of the shrimp at the hatchery and farm.
The Average of Daily Gain of Shrimphatchery broodstocks ranges from approximately 0.3g to 0.4g depending on the following : stocking density, water quality, temperature, feed and other factor. The Growth rate is improving at the rate, about 10% per generation.
Shrimp Hatchery families are selected for high reproductive performance. Performance differs with the use of live polychaete worms (not recommended if harvested from disease affected areas). Female broodstock produces approximately 400,000 nauplii/spawn with 20% spawning/night with the use of live polychaete worms and female broodstock produces approximately 250,000 nauplii/spawn with 15% spawning/night without the use of live polychaete worms.
Shrimp Hatchery families are routinely/commonly exposed to standardized laboratory challenge trials to select for resistance to Taura Syndrome Virus, White Spot Syndrome Virus, and Early Mortality Syndrome.
Shrimp Hatchery families are routinely selected for tolerance of high levels of dietary soy protein to reduce reliance on scarce supplies of fishmeal. Given the cost and benefits of soy based feed formulations the industry is only to gain by reducing animal protein and in particular fish meal, to levels that provide the best economic returns. Shrimp Hatchery shrimp are ready to help you capture this gain.
Shrimphatchery breeding program uses Genomic Selection that boost genetic progress more accurate.Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) or gene markers are both used for pedigree and trait identification. With the expertise of Hendrix Genetics with Genomic Selection in other (aquatic) species, the application in Shrimp Hatchery's breeding program will advance the genetic progress in general and for particular traits with lower heridability.
Shrimphatchery team has representatives in multiple countries that assist you with customer support and helps you with regards to farm production data. The production data gathered is used to guide the Shrimp Hatchery breeding program into the right direction and taking the differences in multiple countries into the equation.
