Comparing profits from shrimp aquaculture with and without green-water technology in the Philippines
- Journal of Applied Aquaculture, 2014 - Taylor & Francis
To reduce disease impact, Philippine farmers developed the green-water (GW) system, which has been spreading rapidly since 2008. In the most applied GW-system, the shrimp pond receives water from a reservoir stocked with ...
Effect of three innovative culture systems on water quality and whitespot syndrome virus (WSSV) viral load in WSSV-fed Penaeus monodon cultured in indoor tanks
- Aquaculture, 2012 - Elsevier
White spot syndrome virus is the most important among the shrimp diseases. It has been devastating the shrimp industry for more than 3 decades. Previous studies reported that greater percentage of yellow colonies on ...
Antibacterial activity of tilapia Tilapia hornorum against Vibrio harveyi
- Aquaculture, 2004 - Elsevier
Disease due to luminous Vibrio has been a major problem of the shrimp industry. Different technologies have been introduced to control the disease. One of the techniques reported to work against luminous bacteria in the ...
Iodine disinfection of grouper Epinephelus coioides eggs
- Bulletin of the European Association of Fish Pathologists, 2003 - European Association of Fish Pathologists
In this study, the developmental stage, iodine concentration and exposure time that will reduce the bacterial load without decreasing the hatching rate for the disinfection of grouper (Epinephelus coioides) egg were ...
Antibiotic resistance of bacteria from shrimp ponds
- Aquaculture, 2001 - Elsevier
The incidence of antibiotic resistance was compared in bacteria isolated from pond water, pond sediment, water and sediment from the receiving environment (area where water from pond drains, which is 0 and 50 m away from ...
Identification of stressors that affect white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infection and outbreak in pond cultured Penaeus monodon.
- The Israeli Journal of Aquaculture-Bamidgeh, 2011 - The Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) has been a big problem to the worldwide shrimp industry. Exposure to stressors related to physicochemical water parameters affect WSSV infection but not all WSSV infections result in ...
Presence of snapper, seabass, and siganid inhibits growth of luminous bacteria in a simulated shrimp culture system
- Aquaculture, 2006 - Elsevier
The antibacterial effect of the presence of Tilapia hornorum against luminous bacteria in shrimp culture has been reported. This study investigates how the presence of commercially valued marine species such as seabass, ...
Temperature fluctuation, low salinity, water microflora: Risk factors for WSSV outbreaks in Penaeus monodon.
- The Israeli Journal of Aquaculture-Bamidgeh, 2011 - Society of Israeli Aquaculture and Marine Biotechnology
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) has been devastating the shrimp industry for almost a decade. This study compares water parameters, alkalinity, and microflora in three ponds on a farm on Negros Island (Philippines) during ...
The potential effect of greenwater technology on water quality in the pond culture of Penaeus monodon Fabricius
- Aquaculture Research, 2015 - Wiley
Whitespot syndrome virus (WSSV) has caused severe production drops in the shrimp industry. Numerous scientific manuscripts deal with WSSV epidemiology, but reports on minimizing disease outbreaks through ecological means ...
Enhancing disease monitoring in shrimp through a geographical information system (GIS) application
- Preventive Veterinary Medicine, 2007 - Elsevier
SEAFDEC Aquaculture Department (AQD) pioneered fish disease work in the Philippines and developed diagnostic tools through research. Its Diagnostic Service Laboratory was established in the late 1970s to serve the budding ...
