Kona Bay Speed

Optimizing growth potential

Based on solid science and proven product performance, we have created Kona Bay Speed. This broodstock is selected specifically for fast growth under biosecure conditions at moderate to high stocking densities. Its offspring thrive in a stable environment with low pathogen pressure where you will witness its optimized growth potential being realized during grow-out.

  • Excels in fast growth in controlled, biosecure grow-out systems
  • Modified maturation/production window may be required due to fast growth characteristics
  • Ideal for high-density shrimp culture systems with over 200pcs/m3
  • Suitable for indoor RAS systems

Performance data

Advanced genetics will be driving control and efficiency improvements throughout the production chain. We believe that breeding and genetics are an important part of the solution and, therefore, are the key to the future of shrimp farming.

Performance data of Kona Bay Speed

Three weeks of conditioning on high nutrition feed prior to commercial production. The use of biosecure, disinfected wet or live feeds (polychaetes/squid/mollusks) is highly recommended.

General feeding regime guidelines as a percentage of total biomass in each maturation system tank:

  • Squid: 5-8% per day
  • Polychaete worms: 18-24% per day
  • Other mollusks (clams/oysters, if desired): 4-7% per day
  • Commercial semi-moist broodstock conditioning pellets: 3% per day (should be first feeding of day)

Feedings should be alternated throughout the day (4-6 times) and monitored to feed to satiation and avoid overfeeding. The excess feed should be removed prior to the next feeding, and adjustments made accordingly. The appetite of broodstock will change based on the molt cycle as well as the increase of nutritional demand during the onset of egg/sperm development.

If available, SPF certified feeds are recommended to mitigate possible infection by pathogens carried by wild polychaetes, mollusks, and squid. If certified SPF feeds are not available, then proper disinfection using a povidone-iodine solution at 20ppm concentration for 10-15 min followed by a thorough rinse in clean water is another option.
