Phylogenetic analysis of Betanodaviruses indicated the presence of four distinct clusters of isolates: SJNNV (Striped Jack), TPNNV (Tiger Puffer), BFNNV (Barfin Flounder), and RGNNV (Red-Spotted Grouper) [8].
The BFNNV genotype can be detected in cold-water marine fish species, while the TPNNV genotype has been found in a few fish species [5].
At least five genogroups are recognized: red-spotted grouper nervous necrosis virus (RGNNV), striped jack nervous necrosis virus (SJNNV), barfin flounder nervous necrosis virus (BFNNV), tiger puffer nervous necrosis virus (TPNNV) and turbot nervous necrosis virus (TNNV) [7-9].
