1 Ege University, Faculty of Fisheries, Department of Aquaculture, 35100, Bornova-İzmir, Turkey Viewed : 4272 - Downloaded : 3956 Postlarvae of Penaeus semisulcatus and Marsupenaeus japonicus were grown for 150 days at a stocking density of 15 shrimps/m2 on the west coast of Turkey. At the end of the culture period, P. semisulcatus and M. japonicus reached to mean weights of 16.46 g and 7.05 g, respectively. Final yield and survival for P. semisulcatus were 1950 kg/ha and 79%, while these figures for M. japonicus were 655 kg/ha and 62%. The FCR was 2.42 for P. semisulcatus and 3.50 for M. japonicus. The result indicated that P. semisulcatus had better growth performance, final yields and survival rates.
