Application of EM in Aqua Culture - Shrimp Production

Rashed Establishment is arranging special programs for aqua culture, specially in the shrimp cultivations. In this field the profitability is more as well as the risk factor is also more. By the application of EM in this field we cam overcome all most the  risk and problems, environment pollution issues and also improve the mortality of the fish.                                                                                                                                   In this case we are applying EM in two ways that is by mixing in to the water and mix in to the feed.           Our Consultants will survey the farm, after that they will confirm the dosage and  intervals. And the supervision  and guidance of our engineers, the work will proceed

1. Mixing with Water                                                                                                                          Add diluted EM to the pond water.  EM: Water = 1:10,000 at  7 - 14 days of interval                 2. Feeding                                                                                                                                                 Add 1 - 2 % of EM-  Feed additive RAED FEED with the normal feed.

Feeding ratios                                                                                                                                    The feed supplied could be from a commercial source. However, a general guideline of the feeding regime is as follows.                                                                               Up to one month                                                                                                                                 28kg/day per hectare added in four installments. 2 4 months   adequate feed provided in five installments. The quantity is dependant upon the growth rates                                                            The pond should not be aerated while feeding. Feeding patterns need to be monitored at all timed



  • EM reduces the capital outlay by 50%

  • The use of EM facilitates the culture of prawns without chemicals. The produce fetches higher prices due to the lack of accumulated chemicals.

  • Prawns are health with a shining shell.

  • It reduces the quality of sludge produced.

  • EM eliminates ammonia, methane and hydrogen sulphide, which are common in normal prawn cultures

  • The prawns are disease free and this saves costs of antibiotics.

  • The water is clean and hence does not require repeated changing.

  • It conserves the environment.
