HAEMOCYTIC ENTERITIS

Definition

This disease can affect all penaeids and is caused by toxins released by blue-green algae (often blooming in culture ponds) following ingestion, causing damage to cell lining in the midgut causing inflammation and secondary bacterial infections. This results in poor growth performance and noticeable mortality.
