Shrimp Health Management Training Workshop
July 24th-29th, 2006
Jasmine Executive Suite, Bangkok, Thailand

The shrimp industry has undergone many changes in the past five years with the impact of food safety issues, the introduction of Penaeus (Litopenaeus) vannamei into Asia and the price pressures on exported shrimp. These have led to significant changes in the structure and operation of shrimp farms in the Asian shrimp industry.

Modern shrimp farming places greater demands on producers. Increased requirements, as well as volatile prices, force producers to re-evaluate production technologies to be competitive. More attention to postlarval quality and biosecurity, better cost control and better environmental management are now central to today’s shrimp production business.

This workshop moves beyond a simple technical focus to include some key business issues facing today's industry. Shrimp farmers know that healthy animals bring healthy returns and that the combination of sound husbandry, quality feed and a good environment are the best guarantees of success.

For 25 years, Alltech has been at the forefront of research into natural solutions for the animal production industry, developing products aimed at producing highly effective, all-natural solutions to benefit animal health, performance and productivity on the farm and in the feed. A key component of Alltech's efforts is the development of education programs to develop further understanding and knowledge by industry professionals. Alltech is collaborating with the Network of Aquaculture Centers in Asia-Pacific (NACA) to introduce this "Shrimp Health Management Training Workshop" aimed at aquaculture producers and professionals involved in the shrimp industry.
