Macrobrachium nipponense is a species of freshwater shrimp found in Asia that was first described in References[edit]. ^ Charles Fransen (). This study includes an experimental hatchery design for the prawn Macrobrachium nipponense from the brackish water of Basrah region (Al- Mashab Marsh). Experimental hatchery designed for the prawn Macrobrachium nipponense in Marine science center, Basrah, Iraq تصميم مفقس تجريبي للروبيان.

Indonesian production is reported in for the first time.

FAO – Macrobrachium rosenbergii

Potential for expansion exists but small-scale producers may need to co-operate in collective marketing to exploit these opportunities. Nipponese wild-caught males Photo: From PL onwards prawns swim forwards, dorsal side uppermost. Both Thailand and Taiwan Province of China became pioneers in modern giant river prawn culture.

Although reared in captivity from time immemorial, modern farming of this species originated in the early s when FAO expert Shao-Wen Ling, working in Malaysia, found that freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii larvae required brackish conditions for survival.

Gravid females migrate downstream into macrobrachiim, where eggs hatch as free-swimming larvae in brackishwater. This hatchery consist of five parts: Eleven distinct larval stages. Body usually greenish to brownish grey, sometimes more bluish, darker in larger specimens.

Larvae mostly consume zooplankton mainly minute crustaceansvery small worms, and larval stages of other crustaceans. The culture of Macrobrachium spp. The type and behaviour of the males affects the growth rates of other prawns.


Before metamorphosis into postlarvae PLthe planktonic larvae pass through several zoeal stages.

From metamorphosis onwards prawns can also walk, not only on the sub-stratum but also over damp areas including stones by river edges, up vertical surfaces small waterfalls, weirs, etc. The measures to combat these problems are referred to as improved husbandry IH in the table below, which records some of ahtchery more important diseases. Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries.

India, Bangladesh, Viet Nam and Thailand export a significant proportion of their wild-caught and farmed prawns.

Production cycle of Macrobrachium rosenbergii. While production of the out ponds cage two in mud and fiberglass ponds were estimated between 4, larvae and 2, Postlarvae. The major disease problems affecting Macrobrachium rosenbergii generally occur because of poor intake water treatment, poor mavrobrachium, overcrowding, poor sanitation, and non-existent or inadequate quarantine procedures.

This discovery led to larval rearing on an experimental basis. There is also potential for expansion in Bangladesh, a traditional exporter from its capture fisheries. Peeled, mostly wild-caught Macrobrachium rosenbergii have long been exported globally, but farmed shell-on and normally head-off freshwater prawns are also a familiar sight in the supermarkets of Europe now.

Antennae often blue; chelipeds blue or orange.

Depending on results the total area of the earthen pond and the fiberglass tank, the potential production of Zoea larvae were estimated to be between 36,, larvae, and hatcgery 21,, Postlarvae. In Cultured aquatic species fact sheets. These constraints are now balanced by nippoennse number of positive factors concerning its sustainability see responsible aquaculture practices below and the development of a distinct and expanding market niche for freshwater prawns.


Chinese production actually fell in but, as the global market expands, is expected to expand again later. Macrobrachium rosenbergii De Man, [Palaemonidae].

This species lives in tropical freshwater environments influenced by adjacent brackishwater areas. Freshwater prawns are a distinct product from marine shrimp, which have their nippohense favourable culinary characteristics. Seven species have been diagnosed of Aspergillus flavusA. This development spawned the first commercial farms in Hawaii and elsewhere.

The study confirmed that the presence of pathological fungi Aspergillus and Penicillium have a large impact on shrimp diseases fungal infection, especially when the culture conditions are not appropriate. While the total production in all culture systems were 12,, larvae, and between 9,, Postlarvae. Abstract The macrobracyium behavior experiments showed that the feeding macrobrachkum juveniles Macrobrachium nipponense are mostly and frequently occurred on the artificially net covered walls of the experimental tanks, this finding were observed in all the three tested bottom types net covered wall Awater column B and bottom C ; smooth or sand-clay bottomand during the two tested feeding times after 2 hr and 24 hr of experiments onset, and in both smooth and sand-clay tanks bottom.
