Seed Selection Criteria And Stocking
One very important step is the selection criteria for the post larvae step. It is the identification of the analytical parts for the fry and this process usually requires a microscope, but using a small eye piece glass to hatchery can also be effective for this observation.

The major factor for feed management is the feed management in the pond, therefore, The Waterbase Limited takes pride in offering a support system to the farmers to help minimize the feed losses by ensuring that regular distribution stays throughout the ecosystem.
The shrimps are a slow creature, they are slow eaters and their mobility is slow as well. Therefore it is important that the feed for the shrimps are in close proximity all the time. There are some general practices followed for the feed application of the shrimps:
- Bund feeding
- Boat feeding or centre feeding
- Automatic feeding
There are also some effective feeding management process to keep in mind:
- The feeding time for shrimp should always be the same, therefore the feeder should be punctual to feed the shrimp.
- When the feed is applied, aerators should always be stopped.
- If any kind of chemical application is added to the pond, the next feeding time for the shrimps should be suspended.
