Shrimp diseases in the Philippines: a historical perspective of research, training and development.
MetadataShow full item record
Pioneering research on shrimp diseases in the Philippines was spearheaded at the Aquaculture Department of the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center at Tigbauan, Iloilo in 1975. Investigations initially covered diseases of hatchery-bred shrimp fry and extensively-cultured shrimp juveniles which eventually extended to semi-intensive and intensive cultured shrimps. To date the following diseases of Penaeus monodon and other Penaeids in the Philippines were reported: Monodon Baculovirus (MBV) Disease, the Infectious Hypodermal and Hematopoietic Necrosis Virus (IHHNV) Disease, Hepatopancreatic Parvo-like Virus (HPV) Disease, Yellow-head Virus (YHV) Disease, Spawner-isolated Mortality Virus Disease, Luminous Vibriosis, Other Vibrio Infections, Shell Disease, Filamentous Bacterial Disease, Chronic Soft Shell Syndrome, Blue Disease, Red Disease, Ascorbic Acid Deficiency Disease, Parasitic Infestations, Acid Sulfate Disease and Hypoxia. A summary of research findings on these diseases, their prevention and control are presented.
