      In vitro effect of fungicides on hyphal growth and sporogenesis of Lagenidium spp. isolated from Penaeus monodon larvae and Scylla serrata eggs. 

      GD Lio-Po, MEG Sanvictores, MCL Baticados & CR Lavilla - Journal of Fish Diseases, 1982 - Blackwell
      The sensitivity of Lagenidium spp. isolated from Penaeus monodon and Scylla serrata to 34 antimycotic compounds was determined. Mycostatic effects were evaluated from observations of chemicals on the development of vesicles, zoospores and mycelial growth and on these bases three classes of mycostatic effect were recognized. Zoospores were inhibited by < 1 mg/1 of clotrimazole, crystal violet, econazole nitrate, malachite green, treflan and trifluralin; 1-5 mg/1 of benzalkonium chloride, daconil, domestic detergent, basic fuchsin and furanace; and 10-50 mg/1 benlate, formalin, griseofulvin, phenol and potassium permanganate. Variable mycostatic levels, however, were exhibited with copper sulphate, 2,4-D, hydrogen peroxide, methylene blue, pimaricin, resiguard and tolnaftate while amphotericin, iodine, nystatin, triacetin, boric acid, fungitox and PVP-iodine proved to be poor antifungal agents.

      In-vitro effect of fungicides on hyphal growth and sporogenesis of Lagenidium sp. isolated from Penaeus monodon larvae and Scylla serrata eggs 

      GD Lio-Po, MEG Sanvictores, MCL Baticados & CR Lavilla - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1980 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      The sensitivity of Lagenidium, isolated from Penaeus monodon, Scylla serrata , to 34 antimycotics was determined. Effects on the development of vesicles, zoospores and mycelial growth were evaluated. Although mycoidal levels of the chemicals tested will be ideal for lethal treatment on control of the fungus, the high dose required may be lethal to the host, thus the use of mycostatic concentrations is more practical. Treatments of rearing water containing larvae, adult shrimps or crabs should be done only after preliminary tolerance experiments using at least the mycostatic dose prove to be safe for the hosts. Mycocidal doses can be used for determining disinfection doses of equipment and facilities used in rearing procedures as well as for destroying batches of infected larvae.

      Isolation and culture in artificial media of Lagenidium from Penaeus monodon larvae 

      MCL Baticados, GL Po, CR Lavilla & RQ Gacutan - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1977 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Fungal infection of P. monodon larvae is a problem in hatchery operations. The fungus, which attacks the nauplius to postlarval stages and causes up to 100% mortality, has been tentatively identified as belonging to the genus Lagenidium. This pathogenic organism has recently been isolated and cultured. A description is given of the fungus, and features of its biology and pathology are discussed.

      Tolerance of Penaeus monodon eggs and larvae to fungicides against Lagenidium sp. and Haliphthoros philippinensis 

      GD Lio-Po & EG Sanvictores - Aquaculture, 1986 - Elsevier
      The in vivo effect of mycostatic levels of fungicides against the fungi Lagenidium sp. and Haliphthoros philippinensis was tested on Penaeus monodon eggs and larvae. Hatching rate and survival of nauplii, zoeae, myses and postlarvae exposed to 10 mg/l benzalkonium chloride, 1 mg/l Clotrimazole, 1 mg/l crystal violet, 10 mg/l 2,4-D, 10 mg/l Daconil, 20 mg/l laundry detergent, 1 mg/l Econazole nitrate, 10 mg/l Resiguard, 0.2 mg/l and 10 mg/l Treflan-R, and 0.01 mg/l and 0.2 mg/l trifluralin were monitored daily for 96 h in a static bioassay in glass aquaria. Test chemicals did not have an inhibitory effect on hatching rate but survival rate of hatched nauplii was significantly reduced in most treatments except those with 0.2 mg/l Treflan-R and 0.2 mg/l trifluralin. Tests with zoeae, myses and postlarvae indicated that 0.2 mg/l Treflan-R as well as 0.01 mg/l and 0.2 mg/l trifluralin did not adversely affect survival. In addition, application of 10 mg/l benzalkonium chloride caused no significant mortalities among exposed myses.
