Comparative study on the indicating factors and prevalence of WSSV outbreak in culture and wild Penaeus monodon (Fab) along the South East Coast of Tamil Nadu
The shrimp industries make a remarkable economic development in the aquaculture industries in India. White spot syndrome virus is one of the most serious viral pathogen causing huge mortality and economic loss. Physico chemical parameters of cultured Penaeus sp play a vital role in disease induction. Major portion of the world shrimp culture production comes from South East Asia. The survey on indicating factors of white spot syndrome virus (wssv) in culture and wild Penaeus sp (Fab) of Tamil Nadu. Indicators factors such as Temperature, pH, Salinity, Dissolved oxygen High and low levels were recorded in four different seasons Premonosoon, Post monosoon, Summer and Monosoon were analyzed. The indicating factors higher rate of infection in during summer season both culture and wild areas. The prevalence of wssv outbreak (%) in higher rate of infection in culture ponds during premonsoon season (11.56±3.58). Similarly prevalence of wssv outbreak (%) in higher rate of infection in wild during premonsoon season (12.56±1.45) when compared to the other season. The observation may be due to inference of environmental factors and climatic change.
