Abstract

Growth of Penaeus indicus in relation to phosphate fertilizer and feed applications was studied in marine microcosms. The 1st dose of fertilizer did not appear to have any bearing on Chlorophyll-a and zooplankton production. An increase in sediment phosphate was obvious following addition of 1st dose of fertilizer in the treated pools. Shrimp production was the highest in pools treated with fertilizer and feed and was the lowest in the control. Difference in shrimp growth among various treatments was highly significant except between control and the pools treated with feed alone.
