  1. Define significant disease problems of penaeid shrimp larval rearing facilities, and in particular those disease which appear to be potentially treatable.
  2. Identify and test likely drugs and/or chemotherapeutants for the treatment of disorders or syndromes, previously defined as potentially treatable.
  3. In cooperation with an industry sponsor(s), obtain approval for the selected compound(s) from the appropriate Federal government agency.
  4. Perform studies that will identify and lead to the approval of one or more orally administered (via prepared feeds) antibacterial therapeutants.
