Abstract:

Infectious diseases are quiet common in shrimp culture operations. Apart from infectious diseases certain syndromes affecting the culture operations in the shrimp farms particularly from Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Running mortality syndrome is such type syndrome associated with morbidity and mortality which leads to less productivity. In the present study we have examined the haemolymph and hepatopacreas of the infected shrimps. The results revealed that, the affected shrimp showed the higher percentage of Vibrio species such as Vibrio parahaemolyticus and Vibrio azureus.Histopathological studies also revealed that, high B cells in the hepatopancreas in the early stage of disease indicate the over feeding of shrimps. Running Mortality Syndrome is depicted be pond management associated syndrome rather than infectious in nature and thus can be overcome through best management practices.
