Common Traditional Field Aquaculture

Greenhouse Non-Toxic Technical Aquaculture
No management mechanism: Causing high probability of pest and disease invasions
Anti-Disease Control
Quarantine networks and complete disease inspection mechanisms: Capable of immediate detection, isolation, and management of hidden disease crises
Delivery of samples to outside institutions for inspection: Needing a lot of time and cost and unlikely to monitor and discover water-quality abnormalities and virus intrusions in real time
Water Quality and Viruses
Patented detection technologies for heavy metal, bacteria, and water quality: Able to do autonomous rapid inspection
Experience only: Unable to grasp specifically the growth and health conditions of shrimps
Growth Monitoring
24-hour underwater growth monitoring systems: Able to know specifically the growth and health conditions of underwater creatures
Manual feeding: Labor-intensive, with quality of aquatic products unstable and farmers engaged in low-value work
Quality and Efficiency
Automated feeding equipment: with quality of aquatic products stable and farmers engaged in high-value work
Emphasizing production increase: Using special methods to make shrimps secrete more hormones so as to accelerate their sexual maturity
Animal Morals
Valuing animal welfare: Insisting on the natural reproduction method
