Aquaculture plays a major role in augmenting food production, levelihood and thereby the economy of a country. Andhra Pradesh is the leading state in cultured shrimp production, value and exports. Increasing intensification of shrimp aquaculture, devoid of awareness on scientific farming practices among farmers, spurious seed and water pollution, exerted disease problems. Diseases in shrimp farming are a recurring problem and the future is dwindling and farmers are facing heavy losses. Despite of these problems, farmers are forced to use of therapeutic chemicals indiscriminately causing abrupt change in water quality which lead to stress. The increased stress conditions in the pond pave way for onset of serious problems by many disease causing pathogens such as virus, bacteria, fungi and protozoa in culture. In order to overcome the situation, shrimp farmer has to have scientific knowledge on various diseases, causative factors and remedial measures, to sustain the crop.
