LAGENIDIUM CALLINECTES

Definition

This water mould fungus (Class Oomycetes) has algal ancestors (unlike true fungi) and is among the best known larval shrimp pathogens, causing serious mortality in the early life cycle stages. It is known to affect all penaeids and is horizontally transmitted. Larval rearing of Penaeus monodon is affected by this fungus in many countries.
