'The book entitled Intensive Biofloc Nursery System for Vannamei Shrimp deals with the nursery rearing of P. vannamei in Biofloc based systems that can improve the digestive enzyme activity and immune response of the shrimp. High-density intensive nursery systems need a high amount of feed and other inputs. They also have a few disadvantages, such as organic waste accumulation and water quality problems. In view of this, biofloc technology has been developed for commercial aquaculture systems. This book covers the biofloc production technology, biofloc use in intensive nursery rearing system of P. vannamei, biofloc in feed utilization, the bioavailability of biofloc, and extracellular enzyme activity. It also deals with the nutrient absorption, growth enhancement, and growth performance of P. vannamei juveniles raised in indoor nursery raceway systems. This book will be useful not Read more
