Effects of C/N ratio and periphyton substrates on pond ecology and production performance in giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii (De Man, 1879) and tilapia Oreochromis niloticus (Linnaeus, 1758) polyculture system

The production performances of giant freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii and Nile tilapia Oreochromis niloticus in C/N-controlled periphyton-based polyculture systems were evaluated in triplicate. The result of this study could be useful in improving the sustainability of freshwater prawn farming in terms of ecological, social and financial benefits.
