Snakehead rhabdovirus
Virus classification
Group: Group V ((-)ssRNA)
Order: Mononegavirales
Family: Rhabdoviridae
Genus: Novirhabdovirus
Species: Snakehead rhabdovirus

Snakehead rhabdovirus (SHRV) is a novirhabdovirus[1] that affects various species warm water wild and pond-cultured fish in Southeast Asia, including snakehead species for which it is named.[2]

It optimal temperature range for growth is between 28°C and 31°C. It is classified as a novirhabdovirus because of its nonvirion gene (NV). Coding sequences of its glycoprotein (G) genes were found to be similar to the three other presently-classified novirhabdoviruses, Viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV), Infectious hematopoietic necrosis virus (IHNV), and Hirame rhabdovirus (HIRRV), with between 36% and 47% amino acid identity.
