This issue presents the shrimp production trends in Asia-Pacific, along with notes on the diseases devastating the industry and interviews with shrimp farmers in the Philippines. The options of shrimp farmers -- which are really quite limited and largely experimental - are discussed. These options include probiotics, the use of beta-glucans as immunostimulant, closed recycling systems. Farmers may also opt to farm other high-value species like grouper, mudcrab, or even milkfish to make use of the ponds they have invested quite a lot on. This issue also discusses Philippine government efforts to revive the shrimp industry, as well as AQD's R&D priorities for shrimp as worked out in various consultations with AQD's program partners and industry practitioners.
