Correction—No EMS in Tamil Nadu

 

Kunjumon (shrimpseeds@yahoo.com) reports: On May 4, 2014, there was a report on your webpage about disease problems in the state of Tamil Nadu, India.  I farm shrimp in Tamil Nadu, and I could not find any information about serious disease problems.  I found a few problems here and there, but nothing like the 40% crash in production that Durai Balasubramaniam (email durai.balasubramanian@myport.ac.uk) forecast.  Your report created a panic among the shrimp farmers here.  There are no reports of EMS in Tamil Nadu.  If Durai Balasubramaniam were to provide more details on exactly where the diseases occurred, I would check them out and report back to you.
