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. The update comes about two months after GAA launched a case study to identify the shrimp-farming practices that prevent the manifestation of EMS. The case study will act as a foundation for recommendations to the aquaculture community for better shrimp-farming practices.
