Honduras and Nicaragua have EMS shrimp blight

Thursday, June 4, 2015


Honduras and Nicaragua are the two countries where farmed shrimp have tested positive for early mortality syndrome (EMS), three sources in the Central American shrimp industry say.

Last week shrimp from three farms in two Central American countries were reported to have been tested positive for EMS, according to a researcher at the lab run by the shrimp disease expert credited with discovering the cause of the disease that has ravaged shrimp populations in Asia and Mexico.
