Why do surveillance and health monitoring? We hear it a lot from the government perspective, and it sounds so very time-consuming and laborious. Why we do it on commercial farms is much different. It’s for your bottom-line. Profit or loss, or worse, profit or bust.
Each farm has a responsibility for its own prawn health, and indirectly, by each farm maintaining healthy populations, you’re less at risk of generating diseases that can spread to other farms.
Dr Giana Gomes relates, “The most effective biosecurity actions you can take are monitoring and keeping a record of the health of your shrimp crops.”
But how do we do this?
- What are the monitoring tools?
- What equipment do you need?
- What do you examine for?
- How do you record these?
Such are things and more, will be covered in the presentation by Dr Gomes. We don’t need to reinvent the wheel. So much of these are being done in farms globally. Here we’ve an expert who has overseas experience, who can show you what she does, and how it can help your farm.
As fish farmers, and diagnosticians, we know that early detection of problems is key.
An early diagnosis will save you.
