Vibriosis in Shrimp Aquaculture A Review

Authors(2) :-N. Chandrakala, S. Priya

Aquaculture is the growing food sector globally and is established itself as high protein resource fulfill the food demand since the natural resources exhibits over exploitation but presently the biggest problem faced by the aquaculture industry worldwide is diseases caused due to various biological and non-biological agents. among the groups of microorganisms that cause serious losses in shrimp culture, bacterial diseases mainly due to vibrio have been reported in penaeid shrimp culture systems implicating at least 14 species viz Vibrio Harveyi, V. Splendidus,V. Parahaemolyticus, V. Alginolyticus, V. Anguillarum,V. Vulnificus, V. Campbellsi, V. Fischeri, V. Damsella, V. Pelagicus, V. Orientalis, V. Mediterrani, V. Logei etc.
