Monodon Baculovirus (MBV)

Penaeid shrimps are susceptible to Monodon Baculovirus (MBV) at all stages of life, except eggs and nauplii. MBV has been associated with high mortalities (over 90%) in late post larvae and juvenile shrimp. Infected shrimp has a weak performance in growth and low survival rate of larvae. Although MBV has not been as lethal as white spot syndrome virus, the infection has also resulted in economic loss.

Clinical signs of infected shrimps

  • Lethargy
  • Dark colored with heavy surface fouling
  • Abrupt reduced feeding

Mortality rate
Over 90% mortality in late post larvae and juvenile shrimp

Infected shrimp types
Penaeid shrimp

Mode of transmission
Transmitted by ingestion of infected tissue (cannibalism), feces, occlusion bodies, or viruscontaminated detritus or water
