Summary:To prevent disease outbreaks and increase competitiveness of U.S.
shrimp products, U.S. aquaculture researchers have developed
super-intensive, bio-secure, recirculating shrimp production systems
since the early 1990s. The general objective of this research is to
determine an optimal production strategy to maximize the net revenue
for the system. An inventory optimization model was built to
determine the optimal harvesting week, shrimp size, and number of
crops per year for experimental trials conducted at Gulf Coast
Research Laboratory, Waddell Maricultural Center, and Oceanic
Institute. Survival rate and price sensitivity analyses were
conducted to see their impact on the system?s net revenue. The
optimal harvesting week solved by this model is determined by shrimp
growth and feed functions. Price and survival rate can affect the
value of net revenue, but do not impact the optimal harvesting week.
Shrimp producers can use the developed inventory optimization model
and results to manage their operations.
