Effect of Shrimp Culture on Livestock Feeds and Fodder

M.Z. Rahman, A. Reza, M.S.K. Sarker, F. Kabir and M.R. Islam    

Abstract: The mean yield of rice, rice straw, rice bran, till oil seed, mango tree and jack fruit tree number and other feeds decreased significantly (p<0.01) after shrimp culture compared with before shrimp culture. The salinity and pH of water under shrimp culture area (saline area) are significantly (p<0.01) higher than that of non-shrimp culture area (non-saline area). In case of soil, the average EC value and pH under shrimp culture area are significantly (p<0.01) higher compared with non-shrimp culture area. The chemical composition of green grass, rice straw and rice bran is similar for both of shrimp culture and non-shrimp culture areas. So the production of livestock feeds have been affected following the shrimp farming practices but it do not affect the feed quality.
