  3. 3. 4 Tha sa-arn Farm Location Tambon Tha sa an Amphoe Bang Pakong Chachoensao Province Thailand Area 15 hectares Office zone Culture zone 15 ponds (1Ha/pond) Shrimp density 75 pcs./m2 Pond depth 1.8 m Production 180 MT/crop (2 crops/year) Farm manager: Mr. Kittipong Wongkosonjit3/2/2011
  4. 4. 6 Overview of Shrimp Industry • The economic recovery led to brisk shrimp trading in the 1H of 2010. • Demand exceeded supply, and prices moved up sharply. • All main markets reported increased imports in the first quarter of 2010. • The weakening of the EU impacted the world shrimp market in the second quarter, and more shrimp was aimed at the US and the Japanese market instead. • The Gulf of Mexico oil spill resulted in very low US shrimp production, leading to more demand for imported shrimp. • Prices are likely to increase and stabilize at a high level in late 2010.

  7. 7. 10 Biosecurity in shrimp farm Biosecurity can be defined as The protection of plants, animals (including humans and associated activities) and the wider environment from the unwanted impacts of biological agents including diseases and pests. • Biosecurity can be applied at various levels. • In the context of aquatic animal disease, this can range from managing the health of individual ponds, through whole commercial enterprise to national or international biosecurity.Source: Perera, R.P., Jones, B., Beers, P., Kleeman, S. and McGladdery, S. 2008.

  8. 8. 11 What “Biosecurity” Means to Customers? Consumers • Food safety cautious • High quality shrimp meat Shrimp Farmers • No pathogen in shrimp farms • Prolong day of culture (DOC) to reach desirable shrimp size • No residue left in shrimp meat3/2/2011
  9. 9. 12 Biosecurity Prevents Disease Transmission Resulted on healthy shrimp for a healthy life3/2/2011
  10. 10. 13 Challenges in Managing Shrimp Farm • Inappropriate “Pond Preparation” • Virus contamination from the infected ponds by seepage.3/2/2011
  11. 11. 14 Challenges in Managing Shrimp Farm • Contamination from untreated additional water • Contamination from carriers.3/2/2011
  12. 12. 15 Challenges in Managing Shrimp Farm • Contamination from birds. • Contamination from a normal practice in the farm.3/2/2011
  13. 13. 16 Results of Low Level of Biosecurity Economic loss by Virus Outbreak!3/2/2011
  14. 14. 17 Benefit of Virkon® Aquatic to Biosecurity Value Proposition Virkon Aquatic can be used to prevent the occurrence of shrimp disease while the farmers apply the products during pond preparation as well as grow-out farms Benefits to shrimp farmers • Prevent shrimp disease • Improve shrimp survival rate • Jump across a critical period3/2/2011
  15. 15. 18 DuPont set out to provide collaborative innovation We have an opportunity to collaborate through innovation to provide solutions for Biosecurity issues. Carriers control Disinfectant product Other aquatic chemical inputs3/2/2011
  16. 16. 19 DuPont Innovation for Biosecurity Carriers control Disinfe product ctant Other aquatic chemica l inputs3/2/2011
  17. 17. 21 Procedure to observe Virkon® Aquatic Application 1. Wear boots provided 2. Disinfect the boots to prevent any contamination 3. Enter the shrimp farming area3/2/2011
  18. 18. 22 Safety Tips in the Pond • Boots to be worn at all time. • In culture zone, the features of walkway is stone and not smooth. • Stay 50 cm away from the edge of ponds • Do not touch or get closer to any electrical equipment • Wear sunglasses and/ or hats to protect yourself from the sun. • Have fun!!3/2/2011
