Abstract: Taking an innovative approach, a vaccination study using five bacterial strains <i style="">viz</i>. <i style="">Vibrio campbelli </i>(B60), <i style="">V. alginolyticus</i> (B73),<i style=""> V. parahaemolyticus</i>-like<i style=""> </i>(B79), <i style="">V. parahaemolyticus</i> (R8) and <i style="">V. harveyi</i> (RG203) was conducted in <i style="">Penaeus monodon </i>against white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infection, considered as one of the serious pathogens of shrimps. Oral challenge with shrimps infected with WSSV showed a relative percentage survival of 5 and 47 % in the <i style="">P. monodon</i> juveniles vaccinated with <i style="">V</i>.<i style=""> parahaemolyticus</i> and <i style="">V. harveyi</i>, respectively. Results showed that there is a possibility of specifically immunising the shrimps against WSSV using bacterin prepared out of <i style="">Vibrio</i> <i style="">harveyi</i> isolates taken from shrimps infected with WSSV. Also, there was a level of protection attained by the shrimps due to immunisation with <i style="">Vibrio</i> strains.
