Shrimp cultivation has a very high potential, mainly due to high and ever-increasing market demand. However, a shrimp farming business like vaname has risks that are not small. Only because of the wrong amount/frequency of feed, 1 cycle vannamei shrimp farming can fail. The solution to this problem is feed management, starting with calculating the vannamei shrimp FCR!

FCR is Feed Conversion Rate or the effectiveness of the stocked feed. By calculating the FCR, you can see whether the feed spread is actually eaten by the shrimp or is it wasted and pollutes the pond.

Before discussing FCR, let's look at the importance of feed management when cultivating vannamei shrimp!

Good feed management will produce FCR or Feed Conversion Rate which is good too.
