Objective
The goal of this project is to develop a captive local tiger shrimp broodstock and to producethe high-quality seeds that would support the development of sustainable farming of P. monodon in Palau. Associated to these goals are the following objectives:1. Establish broodstock holding facilities that would provide a suitable environmental condition for the gonadal maturation of tiger shrimps.2. Compare the effectiveness of using two types of broodstock holding tanks in terms of the tiger shrimp's growth, gonadal maturation, mating success, and fecundity.3. Compare the performance of tiger shrimp larvae spawned by broodstockreared in two different tanks.4. Demonstrate and disseminate reliable broodstock management and larval rearing method for tiger shrimp to the local aquaculture farmers in Palau.
