Sea shrimp larviculture

Responsible: Drª Lucélia Borges
Credits: 02 (30 h/a)
Offered: abr/mai

Syllabus: The different units will be addressed with theoretical-practical classes, aiming to clarify aspects about the ontogeny of marine shrimp from the larval stages and their production protocols, larvae and post-larvae production methods (clear water and bioflocs) and adjacent production sectors (phytoplankton and Artemia sp.), the main factors causing mortality in larviculture, until the preparation process for transporting post-larvae to nursery structures.
