Fish Pathology, 4th Edition

Fish Pathology, 4th Edition

Fish Pathology is the definitive, classic and essential book on the subject, providing in-depth coverage across all major aspects of fish pathology. Commencing with a chapter covering the aquatic environment, the book provides comprehensive details of the anatomy and physiology of teleosts, pathophysiology and sytematic physiology, immunology, neoplasia, virology, parasitology, bacteriology, mycology, nutritional pathology and other non-infectious diseases. A final chapter provides extremely useful details of the most widely-used and trusted laboratory methods in the area. Much new information is included in this new edition, including enhanced coverage of any diseases which have become commercially significant since publication of the previous edition

Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout with many exceptional photographs, Fish Pathology, Fourth Edition, is an essential purchase for fish pathologists, fish veterinarians, biologists, microbiologists and immunologists, including all those working in diagnostic services worldwide. Personnel working in fish farming and fisheries will also find much of great use and interest within the book’s covers. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological and veterinary sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this landmark publication on their shelves.

One of the most heartening advances in the decade since the last edition of Fish Pathology was published has been the further development of sophisticated and efficient vaccines for many of the most damaging bacterial diseases. The advent of DNA and recombination vaccines and immune enhancers has contributed greatly to fish welfare. Even more dramatic over the period has been the contribution of molecular biology to diagnostic advances such as those presented by real – time, or quantitative polymerase chain reaction (PCR), and the advent of breeding programmes that utilize molecular markers for genetic selection for disease resistance.
