Hi: 

Read an article in NYTimes a couple weeks ago that described
a viral contamination of shrimp farms that caused shrimp to
turn pink in the tail and die in a few days.  It goes on to say
that this virus is from Equador which experienced an epidemic
three years ago.
My question is whether the virus is related to the penaed (sp?)
baculovirus that affects shrimp in southeast Asia or is some
other type.

Thanks for any help,

Don Chen
