Who should attend? The workshop is intended for practicing shrimp farmers, farm technicians, progressive entrepreneurs, students, researchers in R & D institutions, officers of the Department of Fisheries, and enterprising aquaculture students from Thailand and overseas.

Shrimp farming industry is currently passing through a challenging phase, mostly because of disease conditions like the Acute Hepatopancreatic Necrosis Disease (AHPND), still popular Worldwide as EMS - the Early Mortality Syndrome, and that caused by the microsporidian parasite Enterocytozoon hepatopenaei (EHP). These are widespread in Thailand and are feared to take new forms across diverse farming situations. Many shrimp farmers have no clue as to how this critical situation could be controlled. To manage these and the emerging challenges, farmers at the regional level need to be updated with the latest research, and also acquire adequate expertise and practical skills to efficiently organize their resources for achieving improved production levels.

This workshop on Smart shrimp farming is organized jointly by Asian Pacific Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society ; Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, Thailand; Blue Aqua International Ltd., Bangkok, Thailand and INVE Aquaculture(Thailand) Ltd.
