      In vitro effects of fungicides on Haliphthoros philippinensis 

      GD Lio-Po, MCL Baticados, CR Lavilla & MEG Sanvictores - Journal of Fish Diseases, 1985 - Blackwell Publishing
      Pure cultures of the fungus Haliphthoros philippinensis isolated from infected Penaeus monodon larvae were exposed for 24 h to varying concentrations of the antifungal agents Benlate, calcium hypochlorite, clotrimazole, copper sulphate, Daconil, formalin, Fungitox, Furanace, griseofulvin, hydrogen peroxide, malachite green, Mysteclin C, phenol, potassium permanganate, Resiguard, Tide, tolnaftate and Treflan. The efficiency of each compound in inhibiting sporulation and mycelial growth of the fungus was measured. The results establish mycostatic and mycocidal levels for each fungicide.

      In vitro effects of fungicides on the fungus Haliphthoros philippinensis 

      GD Lio-Po, MCL Baticados, CR Lavilla & MEG Sanvictores - SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department Quarterly Research Report, 1981 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Pure cultures of Haliphthoros philippinensis, isolated from infected Penaeus monodon larvae, were exposed for 24 hours to varying concentrations of antifungal agents. The efficiency of each agent to inhibit sporulation and mycelial growth was measured. Effects on P. monodon eggs and larvae were also investigated. It is concluded that preliminary bioassay of larval tolerance to the suggested effective doses should always be made prior to prophylaxix or therapeutic applications.

      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.
