The mussel Mytilus edulis L. as an important reservoir of infectious hypodermal and hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV)

Infectious hypodermal and haematopoietic necrosis virus (IHHNV) is a shrimp pathogen that causes disease and consequently has a negative impact on the shrimp acquaculture economy. The IHHNV was first isolated in Hawaii in the early 1980s (Lightner, Redman & Bell 1983; Lightner, Redman, Bell & Brock 1983), and the virus is now recognized as one of the most prevalent shrimp pathogens (Dhar, Robles-Sikisaka, Saksmerprome & Lakshman 2014). 91 more words
