Author(s): Rajeev Kumar Jha, Haig Babikian, Kristina and Sarayut Srisombat

Abstract: Infectious Myonecrosis Virus (IMNV) was first reported in Indonesia in 2006. By 2009, it spread all over the significant shrimp farming areas in Indonesia. There was a significant drop in shrimp production due to IMNV outbreak. Several efforts were made to understand the nature, mode of disease progression, and minimize the virus load. The IMNV progression was divided into four stages. Chemicals, especially of chlorine origin, showed protection against IMNV. Tilapia came up with an effective biological remedy against IMNV. The blend of essential oils, pondguard showed significant protection against IMNV in the laboratory and farms.
