Transmission of white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) in shrimp has been reported to occur by feeding and immersion. In the present study, the impact of the molt process and artificial lesions in the cuticle on shrimp susceptibility to WSSV was examined using intramuscular and immersion routes. For the intramuscular route, Penaeus (Litopenaeus) vannamei shrimp (n=450) were injected with 10(-2.3) up to 10(2.7) shrimp infectious dose 50% end point (SID(50)) of WSSV in early and late post-molt, inter… CONTINUE READING
