ABSTRACT
In this study, the extract of Spirulina platensis were examined in vitro to inhibit white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) and application of dry S. platensis in diet for prevention of white spot syndrome (WSS) in post larvae and juvenile black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon). The results showed that the lowest concentration of the extract for inhibiting WSSV was 0.01 mg/ml, while the optimum concentration was found to be 0.1 mg/ ml in which the mortality rate of the shrimp was 4 percents and infection was not detected from survivalshrimp by the immunohistochemistry method.Furthermore, The results showed that the survival rate of the post larvae fed on steamed egg containing dry S. platensis 5 g/kg of diet was higher than that of the control (p
