Early Mortality Syndrome (EMS)

The early mortality syndrome (EMS) is an emerging shrimp disease more technically known as acute hepatopancreatic necrosis syndrome (AHPNS), caused by unique strain of Vibrio parahaemolyticus. The pathogenic bacteria colonize the shrimp gastrointestinal tract and produce a toxin that causes tissue destruction and dysfunction of the shrimp digestive organ (hepatopancrease).

Clinical signs of infected shrimps

  • Erratic swimming or swimming near the bottom of the pond
  • Reduced growth whitening of the hepatopancreas reduction in size of hepatopancreas
  • Soft texture of the exoskeleton
  • Dark spots or streaks on the hepatopancreas
  • Hardening of hepatopancreas

Mortality rate
Mortality rate of up to 90% within 30 days

Infected shrimp types
L. vannamei

Mode of transmission
Transmitted by oral routes and cohabitation
