Bacterial Fish Pathogens, Disease of Farmed and Wild Fish, 6th Edition

Bacterial Fish Pathogens, Disease of Farmed and Wild Fish, 6th Edition PDF

By Brian Austin , Dawn A. Austin

Bacterial Fish Pathogens, Disease of Farmed and Wild Fish, 6th Edition PDF book puts emphasis on the isolation, taxonomy, diagnosis (phenotypic, serology and molecular biology), epizootiology, pathogenicity mechanisms, and methods of disease control (by vaccination, immunostimulation, probiotics, prebiotics, plant products, and antimicrobial compounds. Co-infections, which are attributed to more than one microbial species have been discussed. Shortcomings in knowledge have been highlighted. This sixth edition is the successor to the original version, first published in 1987, and which fills the need for an up-to-date comprehensive text on the biological aspects of the bacterial taxa which cause disease in finfish.

The book is primarily targeted at researcher workers, including postgraduate students, and diagnosticians. It is anticipated that the readership will include veterinary microbiologists, public health scientists and microbial ecologists.

  • Describes all the bacterial pathogens of farmed and wild fish
  • Discusses methods of isolation, diagnosis and control
  • Highlights shortcomings in knowledge and control strategies of the fish diseases
  • Updated version of the current fifth edition
