Abstract: Vannamei shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei) is one of the leading fishery commodities that have high economic value. If the process is implemented properly, shrimp production with a super intensive system becomes a profitable future of the aquaculture orientation. This study aims to examine the production process and product performance of super- intensive system vannamei shrimp on an industrial scale. This research method is a case study that includes observation, interviews, and directly follows the production process of shrimp on an industrial scale, without experimental design. The production process includes ponds preparation, media preparation, seed selection and stocking, management of feed and water quality, monitoring of pests and disease, monitoring of growth, and harvest. The treatment given was the application of Bacillus sp. as probiotics on rearing media to optimize shrimp growth. This study showed after 100 days of rearing resulted in SR 71%; biomass 8.96 tons; harvest size 45 – 32; ABW 22 g/tail; ADG 0.4 g/day; and FCR 1.6. Water quality was still in the optimal ranges to support of shrimp growth, includes: temperatures 27 – 31oC; brightness 14 – 120 cm; pH 7.4 – 8.6; salinity 33 – 34 mg/L; dissolved oxygen 3.8 – 5.5 mg/L; alkalinity 100 – 360 mg/L; TOM 40 – 103 mg/L; and nitrite 0.05 – 27.5 mg/L. The production process of vannamei shrimp on an industrial scale with a super intensive system that is applied by PT. Sumbawa Sukses Lestari Aquaculture, West Nusa Tenggara shows optimal growth and yields.
