Enterocytozoon Hepatopenaei (EHP)

A microsporidian parasite, Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP) is an emerging pathogen for penaeid shrimp. EHP has been found in several shrimp farming countries in Asia including Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and China, and is reported to be associated with growth retardation in farmed shrimp. The pathogenic bacteria EHP 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

  • Discoloration in muscles due to spores
  • Retarding growth of cultured shrimp

Mortality rate
Not causing mortality but serious growth retardation

Infected shrimp types
Penaeus monodon (Black tiger prawn), Penaeus vannamei (Pacific white shrimp)

Mode of transmission
Transmitted directly from shrimp to shrimp by the oral route
