9th Symposium on Diseases on Asian Aquaculture (DAA9) - EMS/AHPND Special Session Announced

9th Symposium on Diseases on Asian Aquaculture (DAA9) - EMS/AHPND Special Session Announced | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The Organizers of DAA9 will convene a special session on shrimp EMS/AHPND. If you want to know the latest on this emerging shrimp disease and become part of the Fish Health Section (FHS) of the Asian Fisheries Society (AFS) network, don’t miss this opportunity.

Prof Tim Flegel will facilitate the session in collaboration with FHS (AFS) and DAH (MARD) with an opening presentation titled “EMS/AHPND: a game changer for the future development of aquaculture”. This will be followed by presentations from other invited speakers and speakers selected from submitted abstracts. Prof Lightner, Dr Gomez-Gill, Dr Hirono, Prof Grace Lo and Prof Sorgeloos have confirmed making presentations at this session. We are expecting many more presentations from leading researchers from within and outside this region. The scope of the session will be broad and cover sequencing and analysis of genomic and epigenomic DNA of AHPND isolates; pathology, epidemiology and control; plus ongoing regional/international initiatives in Asia Pacific for dealing with the disease. The session will be  part of the 5 day DAA9 event and is open to all DAA9 registered delegates.

EMS Update: Impacts Continue, But Industry Gaining Against Disease

EMS Update: Impacts Continue, But Industry Gaining Against Disease | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Global Aquaculture Alliance President George Chamberlain recently reported that as early mortality syndrome (EMS) continues to take a toll on the global shrimp-farming sector, advancing knowledge is progressively leading toward improved practices and better control of the disease.

 

In his May 20 presentation to members of the National Fisheries Institute Shrimp Council, Chamberlain updated the EMS status of primary production areas and passed on recommendations for management methods to reduce the impacts of EMS.

GAA Publishes EMS Report ‘Managing The Perfect Killer’ | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

This is a 17-page report titled “Early Mortality Syndrome In Shrimp: Managing ‘The Perfect Killer’.” The report is based on a presentation given by GAA President George Chamberlain as part of a GAA-organized webinar conducted in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on Dec. 10, 2013. The webinar, for which 600 seafood and aquaculture professionals registered to attend, provided the latest news and information on the shrimp disease. Also participating in the webinar were in Don Lightner and Huu Loc Tran, both of the University of Arizona.

Seminar: EMS in Shrimp - University of Malaya 30 November 2013 - ASEM Aquaculture: Health

Seminar: EMS in Shrimp - University of Malaya 30 November 2013 - ASEM Aquaculture: Health | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The Malaysian Society of Marine Science (MSMS), Institute of Ocean and Earth Sciences (IOES), Biovalence Sdn. Bhd. and Blue Archipelago shall be jointly hosting a One-Day Seminar on EMS which has led to a major reduction of shrimp produced in farms with annual losses of over USD 1 billion. This seminar shall address the potential mechanism of EMS, the most up-to-date research from leading labs as well as practical measures on how to control the outbreak and still make profits.

Researchers, technicians, shrimp farmers, government officers, suppliers, feed millers and other parties involved in the shrimp culture industry are encouraged to participate in this seminar that brings experts from USA, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia together for a round-table Q & A session with farmers and researchers.

EMS Survey Now Available Online

EMS Survey Now Available Online | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) is calling on shrimp farms in Asia and Latin America to fill out a survey designed to collect information on early mortality syndrome (EMS). The survey is now available online, the organization announced on June 19.

 

This comprehensive survey is the crux of a GAA case study launched in March to identify the practices that prevent and/or manage EMS at shrimp farms. The study will act as a foundation for recommendations to the global aquaculture community for better shrimp-farming practices.

 

The study will be conducted in two phases. The first phase consists of the survey. All shrimp farms in countries affected or threatened by EMS -- including China, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, India and Mexico -- are encouraged to participate by completing an online form.

EMS Spreads to Central East China

EMS Spreads to Central East China | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

From Shrimpnews.com:

In March 2014, white shrimp (Penaeus vannamei) began dying shortly after being stocked in shrimp ponds around Ningbo, a city in the central province of Zhejiang.

 

The Ningbo Ocean and Fishery Bureau recruited So Huang Jie, an expert in the prevention and treatment of shrimp diseases, to diagnose the problem.  Huang came to the conclusion that the mortalities were caused by EMS or Early Mortality Syndrome, which, previously, had not occurred that far north.  The disease struck ponds covered with greenhouses, causing great concern among other farmers getting ready to stock their outdoor ponds.  Seedstock, purchased in southern China, was suspected of carrying the disease to the ponds.  Recognized seedstock brands seemed to result in a much lower incidence of EMS than off-brands.  Polyculture of shrimp with fish or turtles decreased the incidence of EMS.
