The Problem

11J007 EA|GA RAS Technologies - Problem

Disease has run rampant throughout the global shrimp industry impacting billions of dollars in lost revenue. The widespread incidence of disease has over the past two years caused large-scale die-offs of cultivated shrimp throughout Asia and the world resulting in a 23% reduction in global farmed shrimp production. Specific markets have been hard hit reducing their recent production; Mexico 55%; Thailand 54%; China 60%; in the Mekong Delta region of Vietnam over 100,000 ha of existing farms have had production drop to near zero. The risk of disease increases with the intensity of farming and poor environmental conditions of the ponds. The lack of understanding and the indiscriminate use of antibiotics leads to poor or failed production rates, and the proliferation of antibiotic resistant pathogens.

Many of the existing shrimp farms try to enhance growth through the use of artificial feeds, probiotics and chemicals without the knowledge of safe practices. A real threat from this indiscriminate use is the threat to human health and the impact to the food chain it effects. Numerous organizations and countries have identified specific issues prompting a banning the import of these shrimp.

Severe ecological damage and non-sustainable farming methods are a result of commercially raising shrimp using enclosed land based ponds. Large scale mangrove swamp destruction, toxic discharge from the waste water, widespread incidence of disease from a lack of biosecurity, inappropriate use of chemicals and antibiotics are all byproducts of this method of production. In many cases, irresponsible practices result not from dishonest intentions but from lack of knowledge or lack of proper regulations and guidelines by the responsible authorities, or both.

  • Large amounts of chemicals, probiotics and artificial feed supplements with unclear origins are used.

  • 23% decline in global cultivated shrimp production due to disease.

  • Overuse of antibiotics results in proliferation of antibiotic resistant pathogens.

  • Poor Bio-security contributing the problem.

  • Lack of understanding from the farmers on proper use of chemicals and antibiotics.

  • Large scale ecological damage caused from mangrove swamp destruction, toxic discharge from wastewater that can invade aquifers.

  • Many countries now banning the import of these shrimp.
