Wong’s Products LLC. started to EM® on his taro fields in Nov. 2013 due to a disease outbreak. He then took over the commercial prawn production after his brother retired in 2013.
Gerald wanted and find out new technologies that are available and asked us to help. With the collaboration from APNAN technical staff and EMRO Asia staff who has had years of experience in aquaculture especially in shrimp farming, we were able to come up with guidance on how to treat and prepare his large ponds to have high plankton and raise healthy clean prawns using EM® as a probiotic on its feed. He has since expanded its use and introduction EM® earlier to his new stock of post-larval prawns (baby prawns).
May 2014, before EM® use, the prawns were covered with algae growth around its tail and pinchers. Though tasty, it did not look very clean.
