Macrobrachium Now at PAES W.A.T.E.R.

The PAES W.A.T.E.R. facility received approximately 2000 post larval freshwater prawns (Macrobrachium rosenbergii) on Tuesday October 26, 2016. They are 7-10 mm long and weigh about 12-15 mg each. They are being housed in nursery tanks for 60 days before being transferred to a production system in the main facility for growout. It takes 100-140 days in the growout system to reach harvest size which is typically 1-2 ounces (28-57 grams). We expect to have our first harvest around April of 2017.
