Pond Sludge and High pH Cause EMS/AHPND

Pond Sludge and High pH Cause EMS/AHPND

Excessive feeding and accumulation of sludge at the bottom of pond would contribute to pH fluctuation hence increase the risk of shrimp disease outbreak like EMS/AHPND.

AquaFENSE, the microbial tool which contains proprietary tableted blend of Bacillus stains may help in reducing the stress factors in pond environment including ammonia, nitrite, and Vibrio loads, thus maintaining water pH and improve cleanliness for healthier shrimp.

Avoid devastating lost by screening for EMS/AHPND with a reliable test. ShrimpCheck Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease/Early Mortality Syndrome (AHPND/EMS) PCR or Real-time Kit offers a comprehensive solution in diagnosis of EMS/AHPND shrimp disease.
