The yield as well as the occurrence of various diseases in commercial, semi-intensive, closed-system shrimp cultivation ponds in Wanning County, Hainan Province, P. R. China, has been correlated with a large number of pond, water quality, food, and water addition (fertilizer) parameters. It appears that reduced yields and the occurrence of diseases are closely associated with the age of a pond, the substrate, and the water quality (especially low salinities, low pH values, relatively low nitrate concentrations, and high ammonia-N and phosphate concentrations). To cure the diseases, the use of chemicals, various inorganic salts, and various kinds of antibiotics, appeared to be ineffective.
