  1. Define significant disease problems of penaeid shrimp rearing facilities, and in particular those disease that appear to be potentially treatable.
  2. Identify and test likely drugs and/or chemotherapeutants for the treatment of disorders or syndromes, previously defined (in #1 above) as potentially treatable. Additional criteria for the selection of candidate compounds will be: reported efficacy and potential for government approval under current Federal regulations.
  3. In cooperation with an industry sponsor(s), obtain approval for the selected compound(s) form the appropriate Federal government agency.
  4. Perform studies that will identify and lead to the approval of one of more orally administered (via prepared feeds) antibacterial therapeutants.
