Welcome to the second episode of our Calix SUSTAINABLE AQUACULTURE SERIES

We hope you enjoyed our first episode – https://youtu.be/DKu2rUmvK6M – and it is a pleasure to have you back!

In this series, we explore different aspects of aquaculture and define key characteristics of a more sustainable approach to aquaculture. As we saw in episode 1, the increase in food production from aquaculture led to the introduction of intensive farming methods in shrimp culture.

Intensive shrimp farming practices have been adopted worldwide and developed very rapidly, increasing shrimp production, but also waste management challenges. Nowadays, all intensive shrimp ponds have issues with bottom sludge formation, which has direct effect on both yield and the environment. Management of waste water and pond waste (called “sludge”) are critical for all shrimp culture ponds.
