AUSTRALIA – Growing prawns and worms in the same integrated system can lead to improved productivity and waste management, recent results from a Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries research project show.

The two-year study is testing the concept of fully recirculating pond water from intensive prawn culture ponds through polychaete-assisted sand filters (PASF), to create sustainable supplies of prawns and marine worms.

Agri-Science Queensland Senior Biologist Dr Paul Palmer announced the successful production of a second crop of black tiger prawns and marine worms using the PASF system.

“The project has recently successfully produced its second crop of black tiger prawns and marine worms on a semi-commercial scale, without water discharge from the system,” Dr Palmer said.

Dr Palmer described the results as very encouraging for consideration by industry. The sand and worms help to clean the water, provide a valuable by-product and have a lower environmental footprint compared with traditional prawn farming methods.

Dr Palmer explained: “The integrated system uses constructed sand beds stocked with marine worms to filter and recirculate treated-prawn-pond wastewater.

“This treatment removes nutrients and provides a range of operationally desirable effects. It helps to stabilise water qualities within the prawn ponds and allows the farm to operate without regular contact with adjacent natural waters.

“This improves on-farm biosecurity and can help to avoid problems during floods when rivers carry unacceptable levels of silt and freshwater.

“The system also provides a valuable by-product in the form of marine worms that can later be harvested from the sand filters.

“Prawn hatcheries use the cleansed worms as feed to improve the quality of their broodstock and they are also finding particular favour in the live bait industry.

“Presently, the prawn farming industry uses settlement ponds to treat its wastewater and this latest development offers improvements to this process.

“It also offers sustainable methods for the widespread industrial production of valuable marine worms into the future.”

    Earthworm,Cow,Grass – A big cycle!

    My sister in the cow permaculture world, uses earthworms as a handy source of protein for her cow.  I'm unlikely to follow in her footsteps since the infrastructure demands are quite high, but I wanted to share her process in case some of you are keen to give it a shot. She has a big ruber farm, in Cuchi of which she has sunk worm bins into the soil (surrounded by cinderblocks to keep the worms in place.)  He puts big sheets of plastic along the ruber line, on top she cover its to protest the ruber leaves and rain.  The bins are full of cow manure from her cow farm along wit

    The Useful Of Earthworm Powder For Human Care!

    Hisashi MIHARA Hiroyuki SUMI Hideaki MIZUMOTO Tomoyuki YONETA Ryuzo IKEDA and Masugi MARUYAMA _________________________ Department of Physiology Miyazaki Medical College Kiyotake, Miyazaki INTRODUCTION The history of use of the earthworm as a therapeutic drug source for various diseases extends back for several thousand years in China and other parts of the Far East. However, practical pharmacological studies have not been performed except on lumbrofebrin as an antifebrile (1). In 1983, we reported that very strong and novel fibrinolytic enzymes could be extracted from the

    The Benefit of Earthworm

    Earthworm have many benefits. In fact, many people who eat it to cure some disease, without effects, so safe to consume. According to the experiences of people who had experienced a fever or high body temperature, with an extra ingredient earthworms eat their disorders improved. HIGH PROTEIN According to research ever done that earthworms are very high source of protein. Earthworms also contains several amino acids with a high level.

    Formulating fish feed using earthworms as a protein source

    Formulated feeds are complete feeds which supply all the nutrients necessary for optimal growth and health of the fish in culture practices. In many areas of the world protein sources are scarce and for formulating aquafeeds earthworms as a protein source might provide an alternative to common used raw materials.Earthworm: Good nutrition in an animal production system is essential to economically produce a healthy, high quality product. Nutrition is critical because it represents 40% to 50% of operational and production cost. Fish nutrition has advanced dramatically in recent

    Earthworm-Water Hyacinth Project

    From 2012, Anphu earthworm Co.,Ltd has launched campaign to help poor farmer along river to take water-hyacinth to raise earthworm. By collecting water-hyacinth from river then put into pp pack, after 10 days, bring home and keep in dry and lean-to. Then put vermiculture (earthworm) into pack about 5kg. after 40 days the worm eat all food, this time we can harvest worm and casting. The result, after 6 months apply, each family has over 40 bins, every month they collect 30kg of worm to feed fish, chicken, duck, pig.. otherwise, the casting they got then can fertilize plant to give very
