US - The National Veterinary Service Laboratory has confirmed the presence of white spot disease in a quarantined crawfish pond in St. Martin Parish, Louisiana.

Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry Bob Odom said that the pond was quarantined in late April after Department of Agriculture and Forestry officials and aquaculture specialists from the LSU AgCenter suspected the disease was causing crawfish in the pond to die.
