Aquaculture Mycology and Bacteriology is a practical reference to address the steadily increasing importance of infectious diseases of aquatic animals. With the burgeoning expansion of the animal aquaculture industry to new geographic areas, new microbial and parasitic species with pathogenic potential will continue to emerge. This necessitates rapid identification of the new pathogens to enable their control. Each pathogenic bacterial or fungal species is accompanied by the full description of both taxonomic and clinical information for the three major aquatic food animals (fish, crustaceans and mollusks).
The book takes a comprehensive approach to facilitate research to develop vaccines or other similar pathogen mitigation measures, and is useful to bacteriologists, mycologists, aquaculturists, clinical practitioners in aquatic animal health and all those in industry, government or academia who are interested in aquaculture, fisheries and comparative biology.
- Identifies bacteria susceptibility to specific fungus and pathogens affecting aquatic food supply
- Includes all known bacterial and fungal pathogens that affect fish, crustaceans and mollusks
- Offers prevention and disease control measures of aquatic animal bacterial and fungal pathogens
- Includes fungal identification and classifications to help examine features of different fungal groups
Researchers, teachers, students, diagnostic laboratory staff, clinical veterinarians, aquaculture disease practitioners, biologists, farmers, and all those in industry, government or academia who are interested in aquaculture, fisheries and comparative biology
