White Muscle Disease

White Muscle Disease in Vannamei shrimp can be found in the middle of the body and spread across towards head side or tail side or both sides. Within a week days, it could spread the whole body and could lead to mortality in shrimp.  Shrimp also becomes lazy and inactive besides feed intake of feed.

It is mostly because of mineral deficiency and / or Lactococcus garvieae (pathogen in aquaculture, outbreaks of which affects growth of shrimp) and other gram-positive bacteria.

It is suggested to apply Mineral mix (Randmin) and Panache in the water besides application of "Protect" in feed 2 times a day for 5 days will wash out this disease.
