Need

To understand the risk of OsHV-1 spreading to commercial Pacific oyster growing regions, vectors need to be understood. A major gap is to understand the importance of non-OsHV-1 hosts and their role as reservoirs and in transmission of the virus. This project will provide information to better understand this risk, and to inform the status of PIRSA's ban on take of shellfish from the Port River.

Objectives

1. Implement and validate OsHV-1 in situ hybridisation assay
2. Assess OsHV-1 infection in PCR positive non-C. gigas hosts using ISH
