Shrimp disease costs millions

This article was originally published in Foodnews

DISEASE is reported to be wreaking havoc in shrimp enclosures in Bangladesh's coastal Satkhira district. The region produces about half the country's farmed shrimp. Losses are already estimated at BDT750 million (USD10.6 million). Local farmers have called the disease a "viral infection". As their shrimps are dying within four days of infection, many are selling small-sized shrimp at cheap rates, according to the country's Daily Star. However, local fishery officers say the die-back is due to severe heat and farmers' failure to take necessary precautionary measures before starting cultivation.
