From the practical work and applied research work in the field of marine shrimp farming,this Standard Operating Procedure (S.O.P) was developed. This S.O.P. documents actual procedures being used at the time of its production. It will be used both as a guide for current hatchery and farm operations and as a tool to allow the identification of areas where improvements can be made. These improvements will gradually be incorporated into the updated S.O.P. All Hatchery and farm division staff should read and understand this S.O.P.It is hoped that this S.O.P will partly help solve the problems encountered in shrimp farming and contribute towards better marine shrimp management and a more sustainable farming industry.
