Abstract
On two shrimp farms in East Java, Indonesia, a total of 16 tambaks stocked with Penaeus monodon (Fabricius) were monitored for water quality during one growing season. The water quality parameter values were compared with production characteristics. Ranges of parameter values remained between acceptable reference values. Influences of farm, tambak and time on water quality were significant. Tambak production was explained for 25% by water transparency. Observed water quality parameter values could not be a reason for recently described decreased production. Therefore, other factors should be investigated.

    The relationships between Penaeus monodon production and three crop characteristics in 107 ponds on nine shrimp farms in East Java were studied. Overall differences of production (Mt ha-1 year-1), survival rate (%), stocking density (number m-2) and mean weight at harvest (g) between regions and between farms were significant, while the difference of production between farms was also...

        Shrimp farmers in South-East Java have recently observed a decline in Penaeus monodon (Fabricius) production. To stabilize overall production, some farms have switched partially to biculture of P. monodon and P. merguiensis (de Man). The production from 33 ponds in two of these farms was analysed. In addition, the water quality in 10 ponds was monitored over the entire culture period.... [Show full abstract]
