Sandfish (Holothuris scabra) with shrimp (Penaeus monodon) co-culture tank trials

Seven tank trials were undertaken involving the co-culture of sandfish and shrimp on sand. Sizes, stocking densities, feeding and other conditions were all varied. Results indicated that powdered sargassum did not support sandfish growth, although it may have prevented starvation, which otherwise killed juveniles within three to six weeks.
