About Book

The textbook Aquaculture Virology covers the principles of clinical virology for viruses of the three major aquatic food animals: fish, crustaceans and mollusks. The increasing importance of these aquatic animals as an excellent source of quality protein for human consumption has resulted in increased interest in aquatic animal viral diseases, which are the principal natural limiting factors for aquaculture worldwide, causing massive losses in farmed and occasionally in wild populations. Due to the rarity of effective viral vaccines, and in the absence of antiviral drugs for use in aquaculture, prevention and effective control of viral diseases rely very heavily on biosecurity, hygiene and attempted eradication by depopulation. Such control measures depend on an understanding of all aspects of the virus and its relationship to the disease and epidemiology, including interaction between wild and farmed populations. This is an area that has desperately needed a comprehensive textbook for at least two decades; this book attempts to fill that knowledge gap and become the “go-to” book for this topic.
