Two Videos of Baxel Company’s Shrimp Farming Concept

 

   

 

In two murky videos, Baxel Company Limited, which specializes in bioremediation and wastewater treatment, presents a giant tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) farming concept based on recirculation, natural feeds, heavy aeration and some unusual pond configurations.

 

Biomimicry Shrimp Farming (four minutes, October 3, 2015).  This video shows:

• Bloodworms, sandworms, amphipods and copepods.

• Shrimp feeding on crushed mussels and amphipods.

• The control pit in the center of a pond under construction that’s basically an inverted cone 13 meters

in diameters at the surface, narrowing down to about 6 meters at a depth of 3 meters.  At the bottom

of the cone, a cylindrical hole a couple of feet deep serves as a sump for pumping wastes out of the pond.

• A two-level sludge collection pond.

• Tables that contain production statistics and other data.

 

 Biomimicry Biofloc RAS Shrimp Farming (two minutes.  October 6, 2015).  This video shows:

• The construction of a 4,000-square-meter pond (7,000 cubic meters) with the inverted cone bottom.

• Heavy aeration and automatic feeders.

• Shrimp pond water being recirculated through a 10,000-cubic-meter fish pond.
