HA NOI — More than 2.6 million shrimps are reported to have died due to an attack of white-spot syndrome virus since early this month in central Ha Tinh Province.
Poor quality breeds, unhygienic water, a heat wave and heavy rains were blamed for the situation, said deputy head of provincial Animal Health Department, Dang Thi Kim Hoan.
The department has helped local shrimp farmers to sterilise their shrimp farms, collect and destroy dead shrimps to avoid spread of the disease.
It is also dealing strictly with those selling poor quality baby shrimps of unclear origin. — VNS
