The present investigation describes the biology of penaeid shrimps and their fishery studies on morphometric length-weight relationships estimated during the two monsoon seasons from Malindi–Ungwana Bay in Kenya. A total of 1238 penaeid shrimps belonging to Fenneropenaeus indicus, Penaeus monodon, Marsupenaeus japonicus, Metapenaeus monoceros, Penaeus canaliculatus and Penaeus semisulcatus were collected from the two seasons with South East Monsoon (SEM) recording more diverse species than the North East Monsoon (NEM).
Shrimp aquaculture play an important role in Bangladesh economy. It provides livelihood of several hundred thousand small-scale shrimp farmers and about half a billion United States dollars export revenue each year. The production system in Bangladesh is mainly extensive and productivity is low compare to many Asian countries such as China, Thailand and Vietnam. In recent years, a trend has been observed towards intensive culture system to increase productivity of shrimp farms.
The objectives of the study were to assess the efficacy of commercial PHPs on specific pathogen free (SPF) shrimp (Penaeus monodon) post larvae nursing in tanks.
Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a growing threat to global public health, and the overuse of antibiotics in animals has been identified as a major risk factor. With high levels of international trade and direct connectivity to the aquatic environment, shrimp aquaculture may play a role in global AMR dissemination.
