Shrimp farming is not an easy thing. Mismanagement, shrimp can be dead before being harvested. Now is the time, farmers improve shrimp culture systems using EM Fisheries and Pond technology.
Nowadays more and more failures are found in shrimp farming due to the disruption of the aquatic environmental ecosystem and pond bottom due to the decay of leftovers, faeces and dead shrimp bodies.
The pond application pattern with Effective Microorganism (EM4) technology, is a solution to improve the pond cultivation system, both ponds with traditional, intensive and polyculture systems which so far have been hard to search for answers to the problems they face. The problems faced, for example, slow shrimp growth, weak resistance and susceptibility to disease to death.
EM technology is a culture of a liquid mixture of microorganisms consisting of five groups of microorganisms, namely photosynthetic bacteria (Rhodopseudomonas sp), lactic acid bacteria ((Lactobacillus Spp), Actinomycetes, Streptomyces sp, fermented fungi (Aspergillus, sp) and yeast (saccharomyces sp)).
Microorganisms in EM can be applied to this freshwater fishery. Its functions is to ferment organic material into non-toxic organic compounds. Changing the process of decay of organic matter into a fermentation process.
