Aquaculture Parasitology: Pathogens of Fish, Crustaceans, and Molluscs addresses 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 parasitic species in Aquaculture Parasitology in the book 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 disease affecting aquaculture production, thus making it valuable to aquaculturists, clinical practitioners in aquatic animal health, veterinarians, and all those in industry, government or academia who are interested in aquaculture, fisheries and comparative biology.

Key Features

  • Describes principles of diagnosis and prevention control of aquatic animal parasitic pathogens
  • Includes determinants of new emerging parasitic diseases in aquaculture
  • Identifies pathogen susceptibility to specific parasites and other pathogens affecting aquatic food supply
  • Presents identification and classifications of aquatic animal parasitic pathogens to help examine features of different parasitic 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
