Dear all,

I would like to know the meaning of the word stocking
context: "To be eligible for certification you must not farm with stocking densities above 40 PL / m"
from the document of fairtrade shrimp standards.

Thank you

    It means the stock levels - the number (or maybe the weight) of shrimps in a given volume of water, I imagine.

    I'm sure the answer lies in that 40 PL / m" - I wasn't clear what the dimensions are.

    "stocking" is the verb used when introducing creatures into an environment with the expectation that they will live.


    My lake is stocked with catfish.
    The farm is stocked with pheasants.
