Abstract
The European brown shrimp (Crangon crangon) is an important species in Europe both economically and ecologically. The past few years, the demand for large live C. crangon shrimp (> 70 mm) has increased, with higher sales value than its cooked counterpart. Unfortunately, fishermen cannot meet this demand and due to the rising demand and decreasing availability from the wild, this species might be a suitable candidate for aquaculture. Despite its high commercial value, little attention has been paid to improve the rearing techniques for this species. This PhD research aimed to close the life cycle of the brown shrimp by studying each life stage of this species. We were able to design a complete rearing protocol from egg to juveniles which can now be used as guideline for commercial aquaculture of the brown shrimp. Furthermore, we were able to investigate the possibility of RNA interference as vaccination tool. This technology can be used to protect cultured brown shrimp against pathogens that can be dangerous for commercial aquaculture. Furthermore, the virome of both wild and cultured C. crangon was explored and 16 new viruses were found. In the future, closing the life cycle of brown shrimp will make it possible to select individuals with valuable characteristics important for commercial breeding.
