Series: Aquaculture extension manual / SEAFDEC. Aquaculture Department; No. 16The manual provides information on the diseases that affect the 3 major species of shrimps cultured in the Philippines: Penaeus monodon, P. merguiensis and P. indicus. It includes the common name of the disease, causative agent, species affected, stages affected, gross signs, effects on the host and methods of prevention and treatment. This revised edition includes newly discovered diseases. It is hoped that the manual will be of considerable help to shrimp farmers in identifying the disease and lead to prevention or early disease diagnosis and control.
Conference paperO Lang & M Sothea - In RV Pakingking Jr., EGT de Jesus-Ayson & BO Acosta (Eds.), Addressing Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND) and Other Transboundary Diseases for Improved Aquatic … Diseases for Improved Aquatic Animal Health in Southeast Asia, 22-24 February 2016, Makati City, Philippines, 2016 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development CenterThe farming of penaeid shrimps in Cambodia began in 1989 and has significantly expanded since 1991. Shrimp cultivation has been carried out in the four coastal provinces, i.e. Kampot, Kep, Preah Sihanouk Ville, and Koh Kong. Black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) and whiteleg shrimp (P. vannamei) are the main species being cultured extensively and intensively in brackishwater ponds in Kampot, Kep, and Preah Sihanouk Ville, and Koh Kong, respectively. Extensive shrimp ponds were constructed close to the mangrove areas with some containing mangroves within the pond and stocking density ranging from 5,000 to 20,000 postlarvae/ha. However, the productivity remains low at >100 kg/ ha/ year. On the contrary, intensive culture has a stocking density ranging from 300,000 to 500,000 postlarvae/ha. While high cost of investment for farm establishment, pond construction and farm operation are required, productions of newly established farms have reached 7 to 8 metric tons (MT) /ha per crop. The occurrence of white spot disease, monodon baculovirus disease, and yellow head disease was first reported in 1999 among cultured P. monodon in Koh Kong province causing a number of farmers to stop the intensive cultivation of black tiger shrimp. To date, only a small proportion of shrimp farmers have ventured into extensive shrimp farming with approximately 10 ha of shrimp areas currently in operation. To mitigate the negative impacts of shrimp diseases and promote the expansion of the shrimp industry in Cambodia, development of a national reporting system for aquatic animal diseases; capacity building for detection, monitoring and disease surveillance; creation of National Guidelines On Good Shrimp Aquaculture Practices; establishment of subresearch centers and concomitant funding support for marine aquaculture development and extension services; establishment of local shrimp hatcheries and provision of hands-on trainings for farmers; and strengthening collaborations among provincial officers, researchers and farmers network should be accordingly instituted.
Book chapterKGS Andrino-Felarca, EG Estante & CC Lazado - In CMA Caipang, MBI Bacano-Maningas & FF Fagutao (Eds.), Biotechnological Advances in Shrimp Health Management in the Philippines, 2015 - Research SignpostShrimp is a high-value commodity and one of the major aquaculture species in the world, including the Philippines. The shrimp farming industry is dominated by the black tiger shrimp Penaeus monodon and the Pacific white shrimp, Penaeus vannamei. Intensification in shrimp aquaculture to meet the global demand resulted to several socio-economic and biophysical production bottlenecks. Consequently, the issues besetting the industry had raised several questions on its sustainability. In particular, viral diseases remain a constant threat and a significant concern in many shrimp producing countries especially in the developing world. In this chapter, current knowledge on major viral pathogens affecting shrimp aquaculture in the Philippines is presented and discussed. The discussion is focused on white spot syndrome virus (WSSV), monodon baculovirus (MBV), infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV), hepatopancreatic parvovirus (HPV). yellow head virus (YHV), and taura syndrome virus (TSV). Updates on their clinical signs, transmission and distribution are presented. Records of incidence in the Philippines are provided as well. The second half of the chapter discusses some of the methods how to control viral diseases in shrimp farming with a particular focus on vaccination, biosecurity and diagnostics.
