A commercially available algacide was tested as a chemotherapeutic agent for filamentous (= Leucothrix) gill disease of penaeid shrimp. The algacide, Cutrine‐Plus, was tested in 2 to 4‐hr static treatments and in 24‐hr flow‐through treatments over a concentration range of 0.1 to 1.0 ppm Cu++ (as Cutrine‐Plus) of water containing shrimp having the disease. The effective concentration for static treatments was 0.5 ppm Cu++, while 0.1 ppm Cu++ was found to be most effective in 24‐hr flow‐through treatments. Higher concentrations were found to be toxic to the shrimp.
