O cultivo de Penaeus vannamei em águas oligohalinas tem sido um desenvolvimento recente na região Nordeste. O objetivo deste estudo foi investigar os efeitos da suplementação de NaCl em dietas no crescimento, sobrevivência, osmolalidade da hemolinfa e contagem total de hemócitos dos camarões. No experimento 1, camarões cultivados em águas oligohalinas, com peso variando entre 5 a 20 g, foram utilizados para a determinação da osmolalidade da hemolinfa, não tendo diso influenciada pelo aumento do peso do camarão. Após aclimatação em água do mar (35 ppt), a osmolalidade da hemolinfa foi avaliada em camarões com peso entre 5-20 g, tendo sido incrementada para a salinidade da água do mar (35 ppt), variando de 661,0 ± 25,2 mOsm/kg (D1) a 916,9 ± 40,1 mOsm/kg (D4). No experimento 2, camarões cultivados em águas oligohalinas (0,3-0,5 ppt) foram distribuídos em cinco tratamentos (D1, D2, D3, D4 e D5), com quatro repetições. As dietas consistiram de uma dieta basal suplementada com 0 g/kg, 5 g/kg, 10 g/kg, 20 g/kg e 40 g/kg de NaCl, respectivamente. Após 22 dias, os parâmetros de sobrevivência, peso final, as taxas específicas de crescimento (SGR) e taxa de crescimento absoluto (TCA) apresentaram diferenças significativas entre os tratamentos. No entanto, não houve diferenças significativas na osmolalidade da hemolinfa e contagem total de hemócitos dos camarões distribuídos nos cinco grupos.
