Major viral and bacterial disease problems in shrimp culture
MetadataShow full item record
Major disease problems particularly viral and bacterial in origin have resulted in significant decline in the production of farmed shrimps worldwide. The major diseases of viral and bacterial origins are listed and described. Innovations being applied to prevent and/or minimize their effects are enumerated. The paper suggests a broad outlook of shrimp disease by considering not only the etiological causes but also the epidemiological approach. Attempts to produce disease-free fry are still expensive and cannot be applied widely in commercial farms. The aim is to attain sustainable shrimp farming.

BookA textbook on diseases of cultured warmwater fish and shrimps in the Philippines. Eleven chapters cover essential information on the basic principles of disease causation, major diseases of cultured fish and crustaceans, particularly shrimps, and methods of prevention and control. Emphasis is made on major diseases that occur in the Philippines and other countries in the Asian region. Included also are topics on harmful algae, immunology and molecular biological diagnostic techniques.

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.
