Proceedings of Biofloc Workshop


Dan Fegan (, owner of The Shrimp List (a mailing list for shrimp farmers), reports:


The following was sent to me to by Craig Browdy and Andrew Ray.  I am sure that it will be of interest to many people on the list—and it’s free!


Dear Friends and Colleagues,


It is my pleasure to announce that the Proceedings of the Biofloc Technology and Shrimp Disease Workshop are complete and available free of charge on the Aquacultural Engineering Society’s Biofloc and Shrimp Health Webpage.


The proceedings cover the details of the workshop that was held in Ho Chi Minh City on, December 9, 2013.  Please feel free to download the proceedings and pass the word along to others who may benefit from the information.


The table of contents of the proceedings can be found below.


Best Regards


Andrew Ray
