- Diseased wild redspotted grouper Epinephelus akaara were collected from Seto Inland Sea, Ehime Prefecture, in August 2002. Fish showed erratic swimming behavior and inflation of the swim bladder. The fish brains were positive for nodavirus in both RT-PCR and nested PCR. The sequence of the nested PCR product (177 nt) was closely related to that of a known betanodavirus, redspotted grouper nervous necrosis virus. When juvenile sevenband grouper E. septemfasciatus were challenged intravitreously with virus, abnormal swimming behavior and high mortality were observed. This is the first report on viral nervous necrosis in a wild population of redspotted grouper with clinical signs.
