Workshop on Biofloc Technology and Shrimp Disease December 2013 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Workshop on Biofloc Technology and Shrimp Disease December 2013 Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

Disease continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing the global marine shrimp farming industry. Over the past thirty years improving shrimp farming technologies have enabled increasing intensification, improved growth rates and more sustainable farming practices. Nevertheless, catastrophic disease outbreaks have plagued growers in major producing countries worldwide culminating in the current epidemic of Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease.

An expanding number of anecdotal observations from production systems along with limited controlled research results, suggest that biofloc systems help to reduce incidence of shrimp and fish disease outbreaks. It has been suggested that this may be related to more stable and broad based microbial communities in these systems. Though intriguing, the reliability and scope of the data is limited and contrary examples have been reported.

The objective reporting, responsible and balanced consideration of the information available by members of the professional aquaculture community can provide a foundation for the establishment of research priorities and practical applications which may be applied towards holistic solutions for the grave disease problems currently facing the industry.

The goal of this workshop was to gather a group of interested and experienced people to discuss the issue, to summarize what we know and to define the major information gaps. In light of these presentations and discussions workshop outputs may serve to highlight recommended research priorities and potential practical means to reduce disease outbreaks.

Rather late finding and posting this, but the report from this workshop is a great resource on shrimp health and recent research in shrimp system management

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.

2015 OIE Global Conference on Aquatic Animal Health: ‘Riding the wave to the future’: OIE - World Organisation for Animal Health

2015 OIE Global Conference on Aquatic Animal Health: ‘Riding the wave to the future’: OIE - World Organisation for Animal Health | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

The OIE is pleased to announce that the 3rd OIE Global Conference on Aquatic Animal Health will be held in Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) on 20-22 January 2015. This conference will build on the success of the First and Second OIE Global Conferences on Aquatic Animal Health held in Bergen, Norway (2006) and Panama City, Panama (2011) which helped to raise awareness about the importance of aquatic animal health and to build a global framework for improving management, prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases.
