VAZQUEZ-SAUCEDA, María de la Luz et al. White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) and Necrotizing Hepatopancreatitis (NHP) detection in wild shrimp of the San Andrés Lagoon, Mexico. Rev. biol. mar. oceanogr. [online]. 2016, vol.51, n.2, pp.455-459. ISSN 0718-1957.

The presence of diseases caused by virus and bacteria pose a threat to the capture and commercialization of shrimp, and may cause significant economic damage. Nocturnal monthly sampling were conducted to detect the presence of IHHNV, WSSV, and NHP in San Andres Lagoon in Tamaulipas, Mexico, an important coastal ecosystem due to its shrimp fishery and the existence of shrimp farms in the area. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis in the shrimp tissue did not detect the presence of IHHNV, however, WSSV was detected, as well as NHP during July and August, when low salinities and high temperatures were recorded.

Keywords : Shrimp; WSSV; NHP; IHHNV.
