Author(s): M Krishna Naik, M Hanuma Reddy and M Srinivasulu Reddy

Abstract: Pacific white shrimp Litopenaeus vannamei is one of the most intensively cultivated shrimp in India as well as world. The present study was aimed to investigate the incidence of Loose Shell Syndrome (LSS) in L. vannamei during 2018-2019. Sampling was done in East Godavari, West Godavari, Prakasam and Nellore Districts of Andhra Pradesh and subjected for analysis. Four species of Vibrio were identified in infected samples i.e. diseased shrimps and were identified as V. harveyi, V. alginolyticus, V. parahaemolyticus and V. mimicus based on morphological characteristics and biochemical tests. One cycle of crop data was also monitored from Nellore District. The results clearly demonstrate that LSSD significantly reduces the growth rate which in turn the productivity. The manipulation of water and feed management will pave way for successful culture of L. vannamei and to overcome LSSD in shrimp culture.
