This photo shows a typical pond for whiteleg shrimp, Liptopenaeus vannamei in Thailand.  The pond has a surface area about 16,000 m2 with a water depth of about 1-1.2  m. Shrimp farmer buys the farm requirement of shrimp post larvae (Pl 12) from a shrimp hatchery whereas shrimp are grown for 80-90 days. The paddle wheel aerators shown in the photos are turned on whenever dissolved oxygen is anticipated to drop such as during evenings or rainy days.

Note: We decided not to watermark the photos in order not to upset its clarity. However, we trust you will notify us if you wish to use a picture or more. This is expected and will be appreciated.
