The SHRImp project has been active at the TaTong Cooperative yearly fair in Surat Thani province! With new partners in the working group, we have FishVet Group providing with shrimp disease diagnosis with a cPCR on farm and results within less than 1 hour, and xpertSea with their bucket that counts shrimps and gives some useful data to the farmers such as size distribution between the PL’s and weight .

Farmers in Surat Thani and Chumphon province are bringing samples to get disease tested for free, while feeding a database that will be the basis for an area-based epidemiology tool and a disease early warning system for shrimp farmers, cooperatives and clubs.
