White Spot Syndrome Virus in Prawns

In November 2016, in what is potentially a devastating turn for the Australian Prawn Farming industry, White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) was discovered on a prawn farm on the Logan River, QLD. Until then, Australia had been the only prawn growing region in the world free from WSSV.xxxThere is no food safety risk or risk to human health from WSSV, however the disease is highly lethal and contagious for prawns, killing them quickly once it takes hold.xxxxThere are currently no available treatments for WSSV but prawn producers in Asia and the Americas have successfully implemented production management strategies to reduce the impact of the disease on their farms.xxxxThe Australian Department of Agriculture and Water Resources Biosecurity division is presently working with stakeholders to implement emergency response plans to limit the impact of the WSSV outbreak.xxxMedia updates are being released as soon as developments occur.
