Abstract

The survival and duration of the Indian white shrimp. Penaeus indicus postlarvae (PL.) packed with oxygen under uniform water quality conditions were studied at packing densities of 200,300,400 and 500PL/L. with and without habitat material which was in the form of hollow 10-15 mm bits of transluscent plastic straw at a ratio of 1 bit: 2 PL. The effect of packing density on the cumulative percentage survival was significant. The duration of obtaining 100% survival which was taken as the 'safe duration of transport' was significantly different at all the packing densities tried.
