Arizona—Dr. Lightners EMS Paper To Be Published in Diseases of Aquatic Organisms


The following brief exchange took place on The Shrimp List, a mailing list for shrimp farmers:


Ramraj ( My impression is that with the complexities involved, the prevention or finding a solution to the EMS is going to be a long drawn out process.


Matthew Briggs ( Lightners’ paper on the cause of EMS has been submitted to the journal Diseases of Aquatic Organisms and will come out soon (not sure when). So keep an eye out for that.  I certainly agree, that although this is a very good and welcome development, it may still take considerable time to come out with a cure or even cost-effective prevention strategies (if we ever do).  Hope I’m wrong though!
