Deadly disease hits Iloilo prawn hatheries
MetadataShow full item record
Some 30 newly set up barangay prawn hatcheries in four coastal towns of Iloilo are suffering heavy losses from infestations of a deadly bacterial disease. What makes the disease even more distressing is that it has no known control yet. Marine biologists at the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (SEAFDEC) in Tigbauan, Iloilo, have identified the bacteria but have not found an effective chemical to destroy it.
