White Feces Disease (WFD) infected shrimp L. vannamei farm and causing significant economic
losses to shrimp aquaculture industry in China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Vietnam and
other countries in southeast asia. WFD symptoms were characterized by a discoloration of pale
hepatopancreas and white feces presented, floating on the water pond surface, as well as the
discoloration of intestine that became white, growth retardation and increased FCR values.
Shrimp infected WFD with vibriosis symptoms found during shrimp culture was called as
Hepatopancreatic Septic Necrosis (SHPN). Vibrio harveyi was a Vibrio species that became the
most dangerous species, leading to a cause of death on shrimp during the larval and adult stadia.
V. harveyi is a main cause of luminescene vibriosis disease occurrence on shrimp culture in the
brackishwater pond. Vibrio bacteria found on the shrimp that have infected by WFD in Thailand.
Several species of Vibrio are V. fluvialis, V. vulnificus, V. parahaemolyticus, V. alginolyticus, V.
mimicus, V. damselae and V. chlorella.

This research aimed to observed the infection of V. harveyi on vannamei shrimp culture in Situbondo, East
Java Province.

Materials and Method

L. vannamei infected WFD, binocular microscope (Olympus, Japan), incubator (Incucell MMM,
German), autoclave (Hirayama, Japan), analitical scale (Pioneer, OHAUS, USA), reaction tubes,
Petridish, object glass, heating block (Benchmark, USA), centrifuge (Thermo Scientific, USA), thermal
cycler (Veriti 96-Well Thermal Cycler Applied Biosystems, USA), electrophoresis set (Mupid 2 Plus,
Takara, Japan). Materials used in this research were vannamei shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei)
infected WFD, biochemical test kit, BioMerieux Analytical Profile Index/API 20NE, Promega
GoTaq® Green Master Mix, Specific primer of V. harveyi, Promega Agarose, Peqlab peqGreen

Vibriosis was caused due to the poor water quality, unstabilized environmental condition, high
stocking density and stress condition on the shrimp. The results showed that V. harveyi were found all
samples : water, hepatopancreas, intestine, and feces, while non Vibrio bacteria S. putrefaciens, was also
found on feces. This result was supported that in China, microbial intestinal communities in vannamei
shrimp with WFD, as decreasing the biota diversity and microbe abnormalities in the shrimp intestines
were identified with a DNA sequencing method with 16S rRNA gene target, resulting Vibrio (5.89%) and
Shewanella (1.17%) discovery. Major V. harveyi isolated in this research had developed their ability to
resist any antibiotics used. This result showed that these V. harveyi species were resistant to more than
one antibiotics.


 V. harveyi were discovered from vannamei shrimp infected WFD

 V. harveyi observed on WFD represented resistance level for more than one antibiotics.
 WFD was presented infecting vannamei shrimp during the poor water quality and planton abundance
in the pond
