Overview

Top of page

Abalone viral ganglioneuritis (AVG) is a contagious disease of abalone species in Australia (Hooper et al., 2007; Hooper et al., 2012; Crane et al., 2013) and Taiwan (Chang et al., 2005; Chen et al., 2016), caused by abalone herpesvirus (AbHV) [Haliotid herpesvirus 1]. The disease has been reported in both farmed and wild abalone populations and is associated with high mortality rates in all age classes (Chang et al., 2005; Corbeil et al., 2010).

This disease is on the list of diseases notifiable to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). For further information on this disease from OIE, see the website: www.oie.int.

Hosts/Species Affected

Top of page

Species known to be susceptible to AVG include the greenlip abalone (Haliotis laevigata) and blacklip abalone (H. rubra) and hybrids of these two species in Australia (Dang et al., 2011; Dang et al., 2013) and H. diversicolor supertexta in Taiwan (Chang et al., 2005; Chen et al., 2016).
