Some of the world’s top aquatic animal disease experts shared knowledge about mitigation techniques at the GOAL conference in Guangzhou, China. Topics included sea lice, streptococcus and EHP, which was referred to as the “most insidious” disease impacting shrimp production.
Streptococcus species account for over half of all bacterial diseases in tilapia. The authors studied the ability of biotype-specific vaccines.
Both bacterial pathogens and chemical residues can affect the quality of farmed tilapia products. In production systems, Vibrio bacteria quickly proliferate following disease outbreaks.
