  • ABSTRACT The crabs (Scylla sp.) were investigated for the contamination of Whitespot Baculovirus (WSBV) due to they lived inside and outside pond when the disease outbreak. The 6 samples of crabs, all of them were contaminated by WSBV with the founding of virus-like particles in hyperthrophied nuclei and cytoplasm. The size of virus-like particles is 65 ± 10 nm in diameter and 145 + 10 rim in length. We suggest that crabs has a big role in the transmitting the disease in pond an acting as a host for some crustacean virus. Key words : Crabs, Scylla sp., Whitespot Baculovirus
