New Jersey—Epicore at TARS Roundtable


At the Aquaculture Roundtable Series TARS 2014 (Phuket, Thailand, August 20-21, 2014), which is featuring “state-of-the-science” plenary presentations and interactive breakout sessions on shrimp farming, Fernando Garcia Abad, aquaculture business development director for Epicore Bionetworks, a producer of biotechnology products and specialty animal feeds focused on the shrimp sector, said early mortality syndrome (EMS) has been a blessing to some, namely the Latin American shrimp farmers who have remained disease free.  EMS has caused bumper prices for Ecuador and other Latin American farmers, with only Mexico taking a hit from the disease.
