Aquaculture Production Biosecurity

The intensification of shrimp and fish production provides an ideal environment in which disease-causing organisms can flourish and cause serious damage to productivity. Disease may come from any number of sources, for example, viruses and bacteria. However it originates; it spreads through recognised vectors of infection. These include shrimp PL, fish stocks, staff and visitors, equipment, vehicles and transportation, other aquatic life, birds and animals, the aquatic environment and even the air itself.
