WSSV is a double stranded DNA virus which causes a highly lethal disease (white spot syndrome) in many shrimps. As the name suggests, infected shrimps harbor white spots (0.5 to 2.0 mm in diameter) on the inner surface of their appendages. These shrimps also display red discoloration and have loose cuticles. As this disease is highly contagious and can wipe out many populations of many shrimp farms, early detection of the virus is imperative.
