Shrimp brood stock collection still depends on wild catch and chance of infection in post larvae (PL) is more by vertical transmission, thus it is very much necessary to stock negative WSSV PL tested by nested-PCR (improves the sensitivity for detection of the target DNA sequence) along with surveillance to local crustaceans (Lo et al., 1997) for any shrimp culture. Lightner (1996) pointed out that no significant resistance to this disease had been reported so far for any species of shrimp.
