Diseases, parasites, and toxic responses of commercial penaeid shrimps of the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic coasts of North America.
A reference work and review of both infectious and noninfectious diseases of commercial penaeid shrimps of the Gulf and South Atlantic region of the United States is presented and a syndrome of"broken backs" is reported in penaeids for the first time.
A review of the diseases of cultured penaeid shrimps and prawns with emphasis on recent discoveries and developments.
The development of the commercial culture of penaeid shrimps and prawns has been accompanied by the occurrence of diseases of infectious and noninfectious etiologies, and the best understood nutritional, physical, and toxic disease syndromes are the most common.
Some Forms of Gill Disease in Penaeid Shrimp1
Demonstrable histological damage to the gills does not occur in shrimp dying from heavy infestations of the filamentous bacterium or Zoothamnium, and “Black gills” or melanization of the gill process is a sign of several forms of gill disease and is not a disease in itself.
Perezia nelsoni (Microsporidia) in Agmasoma penaeiinfected Atlantic white shrimp Litopenaeus setiferus (Paenaidae, Decapoda) and phylogenetic analysis of Perezia spp. Complex
Persistent co-infection of white shrimp with two microsporidia with different tissue tropism reported herein, suggests that infection of muscles previously attributed to A. penaei, might be due to the overlooked P. nelsoni from a new location.
Parasites and Symbionts of Native and Cultured Shrimps from Yucatán, Mexico
Abstract The prevalence of parasites and symbionts in various penaeid shrimps, including the native wild Farfantepenaeus aztecus (brown shrimp), F. duorarum (pink shrimp), and F. brasiliensis…

Paraophioidina scolecoides n. sp., a New Aseptate Gregarine from Cultured Pacific White Shrimp Penaeus vannamei
Results suggest that P vannamei is an accidental host, although a survey of representative members of the invertebrate fauna from the environment associated with the facility failed to discover other hosts.

Comparison of the Parasites of Pond-Reared and Wild Pink Shrimp (Penaeus duorarum Burkenroad) in South Florida
The incidence of parasitism in pond-reared shrimp is compared to that previously recorded from wild P. duorarum collected from Tortugas and Biscayne Bay.
Parasites in larvae of the herring (Clupea harengus L.) fed with wild plankton
- Biology, Environmental Science
In winter 1965/66 larvae of Downsherring were reared in aquaria at the Marine Station of the Biologische Anstalt Helgoland and about 10% of the actively feeding larvae were lost due to two endo-Parasites and two ecto-parasites.
Observations on the ecology and life cycle of Prochristianella penaei Kruse (Cestoda: Trypanorhyncha).
- Biology, Environmental ScienceThe Journal of parasitology
Two years of repeated sampling of shrimp from Clear Lake, a secondary bay in the Galveston Bay system, showed patterns of infection which provided useful leads to the ecological area where infection of shrimp occurs and the identity of the parasite's definitive host.
Immature nematodes of the genus Contracacecum Railliet and Henry, 1912, from shrimps.
- BiologyThe Journal of parasitology
Because of widespread collection stations, extending from North Carolina, throughout the Caribbean area and the Gulf of Mexico, to Central America and involving many collectors, it was necessary to preserve most of the host material in glycerine to enable microscopic examination of nematodes removed from shrimps.

Describing of these stages in the 2 Thelohania species are presented with a brief discussion of the transovarial development of the parasites in the female bost.
Infection of Brown Shrimp, Penaeus aztecus Ives by Prochristianella penaei Kruse (Cestoda:Trypanorhyncha) in Southeastern Louisiana Bays
- Biology, Environmental Science
Abstract The plerocercus of the trypanorhynchan cestode, Prochristianella penaei was found to be a common parasite of commercially important shrimp (Penaeus aztecus and P. setiferus) in southeastern…
A second list of parasites from marine and coastal animals of Florida.
Two very dissimilar specimens were collected from this host; the pars prostatica in the smaller specimen was proportionately longer than that of the larger specimen; this difference was found also to be true with the testes.
CHITINOCLASTIC BACTERIA ASSOCIATED WITH SHELL DISEASE IN Penaeus SHRIMP AND THE BLUE CRAB (Callinectes sapidus)*
- BiologyJournal of wildlife diseases
One type of Beneckea was present in all cases of shell disease encountered, making this organism suspect of being the causative agent.
Substrates as a Factor in Shrimp Distribution1
- Environmental Science
Three species of Western Atlantic penaeid shrimps-Penaeus setijerus, P. axtecus, and P. duorarum-were allowed a free choice among five types of substrates in partitioned experimental troughs and results indicate attraction to substrate aside from the possible attraction to food.
BLUE‐GREEN ALGAE AND CARBONATES—SCHIZOTHRIX CALCICOLA AND ALGAL STROMATOLITES FROM BERMUDA1
- Environmental Science
The distribution of S. calcicola and other filamentous cyanophytes, as well as consideration of physical factors of the subtidal environments, indicates that the latter probably control distribution of the Bermudian algal stromatolites.
