Proposed Design of an Automatic Feeder and Aerator Systems for Shrimps Farming

Rizki Dian Rahayani and Arif Gunawan
Abstract—Vannamei shrimp farming in Indonesia is currently being encouraged. The nature of shrimp vannamei which is considered more resistant to disease than tiger shrimp is the reason. Moreover, Indonesia's geographical condition is on the equator with a constant rainy season and drought, causing vannamei shrimp production to be carried out throughout the year. Appropriate feed management and cultivation environment management are the determinants of sustainability of vannamei shrimp production. Proper feeding, water quality management and monitoring both temperature and dissolved oxygen levels in ponds Proper feeding, water quality management and monitoring of temperature and dissolved oxygen levels in ponds should be done continuously, so that shrimp farming results can be maximized. The limitation of labor-related management of feed and environment becomes a problem. So we propose a compact design of feeding devices, aerators , dual axis solar tracker panel , automatic pond monitoring to overcome these problems.

Index Terms—Automatic feeder, aerator, shrimp, vannamei.
