Book Description :

With an ever increasing demand for seafood that cannot be met by capture fisheries alone, growing pressure is being placed on aquaculture production. However, infectious diseases are a major constraint. Infectious disease in aquaculture: prevention and control brings together a wealth of recent research on this problem and its effective management. Part one considers the innate and adaptive immune responses seen in fish and shellfish together with the implications of these responses for disease control. The specific immune response of molluscs and crustaceans is considered in depth, along with the role of stress in resistance to infection. Advances in disease diagnostics, veterinary drugs and vaccines are discussed in part two, with quality assurance, the use and effects of antibiotics and anti-parasitic drugs in aquaculture, and developments in vaccination against fish are explored. Part three focuses on the development of specific pathogen-free populations and novel approaches for disease control. Specific pathogen free shrimp stocks, developments in genomics and the use of bacteria and bacteriophages as biological agents for disease control are explored, before the management and use of natural antimicrobial compounds. With its distinguished editor and expert team of contributors, Infectious disease in aquaculture: prevention and control provides managers of aquaculture facilities and scientists working on disease in aquaculture with a comprehensive and systematic overview of essential research in the prevention and control of infectious disease. Collates a wealth of recent research on infectious disease and its effective management in aquaculture production Considers the innate and adaptive immune responses seen in fish and shelfish and the implications for disease control Discusses advances in disease diagnostics, veterinary drugs and vaccines

Book Description :

"Healthy sturgeon" - a practical guide to the diagnosis and treatment of sturgeon diseases in aquaculture. How did the idea of this book come about? Full-cycle breeding of sturgeon in fresh water is a relatively young direction of aquaculture, compared, for example, with the cultivation in artificial conditions of species such as carp or trout. The main incentive for the rapid large-scale development of sturgeon breeding was a catastrophic reduction in the number of sturgeons in nature and the introduction, in this regard, of a ban on their fishing. Within a short time, thousands of fish farms appeared around the world, some of which were previously cultivated by other species, while others were built specifically for sturgeon. The available knowledge about sturgeons characterized them as very resistant to various fish diseases. However, in practice, fish farmers from both old and newly created farms are faced with the fact that under artificial conditions all groups of sturgeon (from young to mature fish) are significantly susceptible to various diseases. There were frequent cases when in certain periods the death of sturgeon juveniles reached 90%. One of the main reasons for this is that radical changes in lifestyle, expressed in the exclusion of the sea period and constant keeping in fresh water, have had a negative impact on sturgeon resistance to diseases that have not previously been noted at these fish. This is especially true for bacterial diseases that cause the most damage on sturgeon farms. Many fish farmers were not ready for this. As practice shows, if fishery specialists had taken timely measures to identify diseases in the initial stages, then, in most cases, it would be possible to prevent the mass death of fish and avoid serious losses. Therefore, working on this book, we have tried to fully help fish farmers in solving the main problems: timely diagnosis of diseases, the choice of emergency measures to prevent the development and further spread of the disease and, most importantly, the creation of conditions that prevent the emergence of diseases of fish on the sturgeon farm. The diagnostic and laboratory research methods described in this manual are focused specifically on the capabilities of fisheries laboratories, which are equipped mainly with optical equipment and rapid analysis tools. A detailed description of the external manifestations and clinical signs that in a fish farm will help to establish the onset of the disease in a timely manner was a priority task that the authors of this book tried to solve. For a better perception, all the diseases described in the book are illustrated by a large number (more than two hundred) of original photographs, diagrams and drawings. For ease of use of the book, the materials are grouped into three sections: The first section is devoted to general information about diseases, the principles of their diagnosis and ichthyopathological examination. Also, the section provides information about the features of the anatomy of sturgeon, in relation to the issues of ichthyopathology. The second section contains descriptions of infectious and non-infectious diseases of sturgeon, indicating the causes of their occurrence, risk factors and methods of treatment. The third section describes the general principles and methods of treatment of fish, the characteristics of some of the most commonly used drugs. The materials of the manual are adapted for a wide range of readers, including those studying fish farming and fish diseases on their own.

Book Description :

Antibiotics are drugs of natural or synthetic origin that have the capacity to kill or to inhibit the growth of micro-organisms. Antibiotics that are sufficiently non-toxic to the host are used as chemotherapeutic agents in the treatment of infectious diseases of human, animals and plants. They have long been present in the environment and have played a crucial role in the battle between man and microbe. Many bacterial species multiply rapidly enough to double their numbers every 20-30 minutes, so their ability to adapt to changes in the environment and survive unfavourable conditions often results in the development of mutations that enable the species to survive changing external conditions. Another factor contributing to their adaptability is that individual cells do not rely on their own genetic resources. Many, if not all, have access to a large pool of itinerant genes that move form one bacteria cell to another and spread through bacterial populations through a variety of mobile genetic elements, of which plasmids and transposable elements are two examples. The capacity of bacteria to adapt to changes in their environment and thus survive is called resistance. Drug choices for the treatment of common infectious diseases are becoming increasingly limited and expensive and, in some cases, unavailable due to the emergence of drug resistance in bacteria and fungi-resistance that is threatenging to reverse much medical progress of the past 50 years. Dissemination of resistant micro-organisms may occur in both hospitals and communities. It is recognized that a major route of transmission of resistant micro-organishm from animals to humans is through the food chain. In aquaculture, antibiotics have been used mainly for therapeutic purposes and as prophylactic agents. The contribution to antimicrobial resistance of antibiotics used in aquaculture is reviewed here, using a risk analysis framework. Some recommendations on responsible conduct in this context are proposed, aimed at diminishing the threat of build up of antimicrobial resistance.

Book Description :

There has been a continual expansion in aquaculture, such that total production is fast approaching that of wild-caught fisheries. Yet the expansion is marred by continued problems of disease. New pathogens emerge, and others become associated with new conditions. Some of these pathogens become well established, and develop into major killers of aquatic species. Diagnosis and Control of Diseases of Fish and Shellfish focuses on the diagnosis and control of diseases of fish and shellfish, notably those affecting aquaculture. Divided into 12 chapters, the book discusses the range of bacterial, viral and parasitic pathogens, their trends, emerging problems, and the relative significance to aquaculture. Developments in diagnostics and disease management, including the widespread use of serological and molecular methods, are presented. Application/dose and mode of action of prebiotics, probiotics and medicinal plant products used to control disease are examined, as well as the management and hygiene precautions that can be taken to prevent/control the spread of disease. This book will be a valuable resource for researchers, students, diagnosticians, veterinarians, fish pathologists and microbiologists concerned with the management of diseases of fish and shellfish.

Book Description :

Fish farming, in seawater and in freshwater, in cages, tanks or ponds, makes an ever-increasing and significant contribution to the production of aquatic food in many regions of the world. During the last few decades there has been significant progress and expansion in the aquaculture sector, characterized by intensified production and the exploitation of many new species. Aquaculture must be a sustainable bio-production, environmentally as well as economically. Disease prevention in order to reduce losses, and the use of antimicrobials is crucial in this perspective. Vaccination has, in a few years, become the most important method for disease prevention in aquaculture, and effective prophylaxis based on stimulation of the immune system of the fish is essential for further development of the industry. This book provides general information about disease prevention in fish by vaccination, as well as specific descriptions of the correct use of vaccines against the most important bacterial and viral infectious diseases of aquatic animals. The book is written by some of the world’s leading experts in the subject, drawn from many countries where aquaculture is a significant and expanding part of the economy. Fish Vaccination is an encyclopedia of fish vaccinology for every present and future aquaculturist. Professionals in the aquaculture sector, including fish veterinarians and fish biologists, within the industry, in scientific institutions and regulatory authorities will all find a huge wealth of commercially important knowledge within this book. Libraries in all universities where aquaculture, biological and veterinary sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this important book on their shelves.

Book Description :

Although aquaculture as a biological production system has a long history, systematic and efficient breeding programs to improve economically important traits in the farmed species have rarely been utilized until recently, except for salmonid species. This means that the majority of aquaculture production (more than 90 %) is based on genetically unimproved stocks. In farm animals the situation is vastly different: practically no terrestrial farm production is based on genetically unimproved and undomesticated populations. This difference between aquaculture and livestock production is in spite of the fact that the basic elements of breeding theory are the same for fish and shellfish as for farm animals. One possible reason for the difference is the complexity of reproductive biology in aquatic species, and special consideration needs to be taken in the design of breeding plans for these species. Since 1971 AKVAFORSK, has continuously carried out large scale breeding research projects with salmonid species, and during the latest 15 years also with a number of fresh water and marine species. Results from this work and the results from other institutions around the world have brought forward considerable knowledge, which make the development of efficient breeding programs feasible. The genetic improvement obtained in selection programs for fish and shellfish is remarkable and much higher than what has been achieved in terrestrial farm animals.
