Research in Penaeid shrimp culture has been ongoing for the last five decades and supports one of the fastest growing global primary industries, with total aquaculture volumes in 2018 of 6 million metric tons and a value of USD38.5 billions. The industry is dominated by the whileleg shrimp, Litopenaeus vannamei, and the giant tiger prawn, Penaeus monodon, which account for 83% and 13% of global production volume, respectively. Today, shrimp production utilizes a range of production strategies, from extensive to super-intensive systems, to improve productivity, feed conversion efficiency, biosecurity, and reduce impacts on the environment. New innovative production technologies and high-quality, sustainably sourced feeds are increasingly relied upon to grow this sector and deliver a premium cultured seafood product globally.
We invite review and original research papers related to recent advances in shrimp culture, feeds and feeding, including technological advances and nutritional aspects relevant to their culture and marketing over the entire production process, from breeding, larval rearing, to grow-out and entry into the food supply chain.
