Sustainable Biofloc Systems for Marine Shrimp describes the biofloc-dominated aquaculture systems developed over 20 years of research at Texas A&M AgriLife Research Mariculture Laboratory for the nursery and grow-out production of the Pacific White Shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei. The book is useful for all stakeholders, with special attention given to entrepreneurs interested in building a pilot biofloc-dominated system. In addition to the content of its 15 chapters that cover topics on design, operation and economic analysis, the book includes appendices that expand on relevant topics, links to Excel sheets that assist in calculations, and video links that illustrate important operations tasks.

  • Presents the most recent trials on nursery & gross-out of L. vannamei
  • Includes a discussion of site selection, equipment options and water sources
  • Provides a step-by-step guides from tank preparation, to feeding and harvest

Samocha, Tzachi Matzliach
Dr. Tzachi Matzliach Samocha, Consultant, prior to consultant he was a regents fellow & professor at Texas A&M Agrilife Research Mariculture Laboratory at Flour Bluff, Corpus Christi where he conducted research on shrimp through culture experiments in raceways and ponds to develop new concepts in intensive nursery and grow-out techniques: use of halophyte for aquaculture effluent water remediation and for biofuel and co-products production and culture of microalgae for biofuel and co-products production. He succeeded with transfer of aquaculture technology to commercial producers and industry related businesses which is the basis of this work.
