Incidence of post-larval mortalities of 30- 100% was reported from commercial freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii (De Man) hatcheries in Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu (south-eastern states of India) since 2001. Infec ted postlarvae (PL) exhibited clinical symptoms with lethargy, anorexia and whitening of abdominal muscles and the disease was identified as white muscle disease (WMD).
