A Preliminary Study of Ecopath with Ecosim to the Shrimp Pond Ecosystem
Marine aquaculture is an important growing worldwide industry. An ecosystem approach to study the effects of aquaculture on shrimp ponds was implemented by using a trophic mass-balance model in order to estimate the potential effects of aquaculture and, therefore, to identify the species playing a key-role in ecosystem. Furthermore, the use of mass-balance models can provide important information to improve shrimp culture.
