Distribution of Ostreid herpesvirus-1 (OsHV-1) microvariant in seawater in a recirculating aquaculture system

Ostreid herpesvirus-1 (OsHV-1) microvariant presents a significant threat to the commercial production of Crassostrea gigas worldwide. Investigating the transmission of the virus in the estuarine environment where oysters are grown has proven to be difficult due to the complexity of the ecosystem. 288 more words


The use of size and growing height to improve Crassostrea gigas farming and breeding techniques against OsHV-1

Mortality associated with ostreid herpesvirus 1 (OsHV-1) has significantly impacted Crassostrea gigas farmers all around the world. Although selective breeding programs to improve OsHV-1 resistance can significantly reduce the mortality rate below 20%, husbandry practices have also been one way to limit or decrease mortality. 411 more words
