US SIS launches new prawn broodstock for India..

Prawn – mission possible?

Indonesia – shrimp growth possible/impossible – broodstock focus on diseases or growth….intensification of existing culture….

Prawn growth over disease…

Shrimp farmers in India understand now how to manage disease on farms with good shrimp management – so now preference is for broodstock that give PLs that grow fast over broodstock that give PLs with disease resistance – which anyway should be mandatory from SPF facilities.

Also local shrimp breeding programs are slowly replacing imports.
