Abstract:
Disease outbreaks and mortalities caused by largemouth bass virus (LMBV) in largemouth bass (Micropterus salmoides) have been reported in the US. Blood and mucus samples tested by PCR to assess the presence of LMBV in largemouth bass in northeastern Mexico were negative, and further monitoring is needed.
