Objectives

1. Compare the pathogenicity of exotic AHPND and the presumptive bacterial hepatopancreatitis in Penaeus monodon and P. merguensis.

2. Compare the pathology caused by exotic AHPND and the presumptive bacterial hepatopancreatitis in Penaeus monodon and P. merguensis.

3. Determine the whole genome sequence of the Vibrio harveyi strain from farmed Penaeus monodon and P. merguensis presumptive bacterial hepatopancreatitis.

4. Optimise, evaluate through inter-laboratory testing and then implement improved diagnostic tests for the Pir toxin gene.
