Commercial culture of shrimp involves stocking of shrimp seeds (post larvae) in the ponds rearing them to a marketable size and harvesting. Shrimp seeds for stocking are mostly procured from the commercial shrimp hatcheries as the availability and quality of wild seeds varies. The number of shrimp hatcheries in India has increased rapidly since the late 1980s. The total production of PL in India has increased with this hatchery development to approximately 10 billion per year in 20022003, requiring up to an estimated 200000 broodstock per year. The poor management of the broodstock in the hatcheries and also the farms led to the outbreak different diseases. In order to prevent this Pl quality will be improved. The present study was conducted in a leading commercial hatchery situated at Mukkam, Vizianagarm (dist).A.P. The following information are very much useful for hatcheries to produce high quality shrimp seeds. The broodstock quality was checked by using amplification of DNA and PCR test. The w ater qualities such as healthy status of the larval, microbial load . The length and size variation, effect of fouling organisms, MBV, necrosis and endoaparasites in seeds. Stress test was also done for active and healthy seeds in the tanks by using formalin. The general conclusion obtained from the present study is that the healthy and daily monitoring of the seeds plays a vital role for giving quality seeds throughout the year. The present study is an association with a leading shrimp hatchery and the results obtained are highly beneficial to other hatchery operators to produce high quality shrimp seeds for a sustainable and ecofriendly aquaculture in India.
