SHRIMP (Pacific white shrimp) FARM BIOSECURITY:




Nyan Taw

Hang Tuah University, Surabaya INDONESIAOctober 28-29, 2010



The success or failure in shrimp aquaculture is how successful one can prevent and control the viral (mainly WSSV) out breaks. Biosecurity had been applied in Indonesia since introduction of L. vannamei from 2002 (Nyan Taw et al, 2002, 2007, 2008 & 2009; Nyan Taw, 2005 & 2010). Most recently an article specifically on farm biosecurity will be published in GAA November/December, 2010 issue (Nyan Taw, 2010b)

Most locations in Asia are not viral free. One must be able to operate amid viral threats. One important factor is to understand the character of virus you are trying to protect from. Biosecurity starts with quality of farm design. This is followed by biosecure operation system. With quality farm design, operation system and biosecurity awareness training, the viral (WSSV) issue can be minimized.


What we are protecting from ?


1. Biosecurity (Correct defination)2. Know your enemy (Information)3. Preventive measures (Information)4. Implementation (Do it)5. Timely (On time)6. Strict discipline (No exceptions)7. Be serious (Better safe then sorry)

Pond Construction

HDPE lined ponds

Semi-lined ponds

Earthen ponds

Farming Technology

Reservoir system module

with quarantine & treatment


Farm Management

Follow strict biosecurity on

the management system

SPF Post Larvae (PL)

Healthy PLs from hatchery which

use NBC broodstock

SPF Broodstock

Use SPF broodstock from

certified Nucleus Breeding

Center (NBC)

Air borne

Birds pickup infected dead or

live shrimp and drops into

culture ponds; Human ?

Water borne

Crustaceans; Free living WSSV in

water; human and equipments.

Human transmission.

People involved in farming

(Technicians, workers, guests, etc)

Environmental stress

Minimize stress on shrimp in ponds.

Application of feeds, treatment of pond

water, paddle wheels in right place and

in operation, high density without

appropriate energy input, etc.

Land borne

Carriers crustaceans crabs, human, domestic

and wild animals, etc


Do not use fresh feed -

trash fish, bivalves, etc.

Farm Biosecurity - Factors

Stocking Density

Stocking density/ Energy input/ Pond construction/system -balanced

1. Use SPF post larvae (PL)

2. Use reservoir module system- water treatment system, operate as SOP

3. Balanced - stocking density, energy input, pond construction & system.

4. Use crab fence all in place

5. Use bird scare lines - all in place

6. Control workers movement farm/farm; module/module, row/row

7. No handling (touching) unnecessary only person responsible can handle.

8. Minimize workers minimum worker team: stocking, harvest, sampling.

9. Use chemical (sun drying) to disinfect all equipment screen net, cast net, etc.

10.All equipment in operation eg. PWAs, water pumps, siphon equipment, etc.

11. Educate people on biosecurity

12. Environmental cleanliness Car dip, pond, water, housing, etc.

13. Control Human traffic guest, workers, technicians, Management personal, etc.

Pond Address :

I. Ready for operation (Siap operasi ), All Bio measures in place / ready before filling of water

1. Cek konstruksi tambak ( Reservoir tambak culture, perlengkapan peralatan budidaya )

All factors under control

Steps to be taken when WSSV (Viral) out-break is suspected.

1. When viral out-break is suspected you need to quarantine the suspected pond. At the

same time you need to implement the following:

a. Stop all traffic people, trucks, cars, motorcycles passing across the pond

b. Stop sampling - cast nets for shrimp size, environmental data (DO, Temp, etc).

c. Make the remaining ponds increase the carrying capacity increase DO by operating

longer or more numbers to maximum capacity.

d. You could start with ponds near-by or ponds stocked from same hatchery.

e. For WSSV or viral pay more attention to young ponds.

f. Check biosecurity system for biosecurity breaches- correct if necessary.

g. Do not wait for PCR result.

2. Quarantine the suspected pond. (for DOC
