Emerging shrimp disease threats are caused by various etiological agents and are responsible for
devastating losses in farmed shrimp around the South Asia and South East Asia. In addition to
directly imposing negative economic and ecological effects, these emerging disease outbreaks
are also notoriously difficult to prevent and control due to lack of information on the disease
itself. The emergence of recent reports in various shrimp diseases are also major concern in
shrimp industries and has highlighted some of the difficulties surrounding the diagnosis and
control of the diseases. Hence, this paper is intended to provide a review of the literature that
focuses on emerging shrimp diseases around South East Asian countries.
