SPF Shrimp Broodstock

The Hawaii Shrimp Health Certification Program is managed by the Hawaii Department of Agriculture, Animal Disease Control Branch. Participating shrimp operations are continuously monitored and tested for specific pathogens. Operations that test negative for 2 years or more are considered specific pathogen-free (SPF). The animals produced at these operations are valued for their health status and are exported to other countries. The export value in 2014 was $26 million.

For more information, please contact the Aquaculture Veterinary Medical Officer.
