      Diseases in farmed mud crabs Scylla spp.: Diagnosis, prevention, and control. 

      CR Lavilla-Pitogo & LD de la Peña - 2004 - Aquaculture Dept., Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      Aquaculture production has suffered many set-backs due to the occurrence of diseases. Many of the diseases are caused by infectious organisms that are difficult to detect and need sophisticated instruments for diagnosis, but most disease occurrence and mortality in farmed aquatic animals are related to poor rearing water quality. It is, therefore, important for technicians and farmers to recognize the relationship between the animals they culture and the aquatic environment. The Government of Japan, through the Regional Fish Disease Project, funded research on diseases affecting mud crabs in order to come up with sound prevention and control methods. This book is a collection of observations gathered from various research and commercial culture activities, and gives emphasis on disease recognition using simple techniques and gross observations of affected crabs. However, since many of the diseases are caused by microorganisms, microscopy is an important technique for their diagnosis. The authors of the book encourage active cooperation between farmers and diagnostic laboratories for disease identification, prevention, and control in order to build up more information to increase production. The Regional Fish Disease Project supports sustainable mud crab production and hopes that farmers and other users of this book will attain their production goals.

      Health maintenance and monitoring. 

      CR Lavilla-Pitogo & LD de la Peña (Eds.) - In CR Lavilla-Pitogo & LD de la Peña (Eds.), Diseases in farmed mud crabs Scylla spp. : diagnosis, prevention, and control, 2004 - Aquaculture Department, Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center
      For aquaculture species with mature technologies, the major constraints in production are usually related to health maintenance, disease occurrence, and product quality. These issues are inter-related, especially if disease prevention or control implements have long-term effects on the environment or produce residues that make products unacceptable for consumption. Although Fish Health is a relatively young discipline, numerous publications are already available for reference. One of the best references that discuss about disease, health, monitoring and surveillance is the Survey Toolbox for Aquatic Animal Diseases. Most of the information in this section is derived from various sections of that book.
