As the video caption tells, the video is affiliated to a super intensive shrimp farm located in Phang Nga, Thailand. The stocking rate of post larvae in the farm is 300 PL/m2. The shrimp culture in the farm with “High Density Polyethylene” HDPE liners. The target shrimp production is 4.5 kg of shrimp/m2; such high production required highly efficient aeration system as shown in the video.
It may worth noting that through a breeding program carried out in Thailand targeted to improve the growth rate of white leg shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, enabling a significant increase in stocking density and so much higher yields, allowing Thailand to produce nearly 600,000 tons in 2009-2010.
