WSD and shrimp
Harm to aquaculture
- can affect most of the aquatic crustaceans
- can cause up to 100% mortality
- can have a serious economic impact on cultured shrimp.
We recommend the use of
- SPF seeds
- Good biosecurity practice
But even so:
it is very hard to guarantee that any commercial grow-out system will remain WSSV-free
it is easy things to go wrong
WSD is very difficult to control.
