Whiteleg shrimp is one of the most sought-after fishery commodities in the aquaculture sector due to its expensive price, good taste, and disease resistance. In response to its high demand, one of the innovations made for whiteleg shrimp culture is the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS). The RAS is an aquaculture technology that recycles used water with a filter to remove wastewater products. The use of RAS offers many advantages, namely reducing water turnover, good water quality, and improving the performance of whiteleg shrimp culture. In addition, RAS also reduces the likelihood of disease infection in the shrimp culture. Through this review, we would like to highlight the development of the RAS approach in whiteleg shrimp farming and its effect on cultivation performance.
