Furunculosis of fish was first described over 100 years ago and this book is the first to discuss such a single fish disease. Eighteen chapters review and critically evaluate the contribution of individual disciplines, presenting a fascinating insight into the opinions, the controversies, the flavour of the debates, the humour and the excitement of the process which has led to the present understanding of this economically important disease. The multidisciplinary nature of research strategies is fully explored, and will have implications for those whose interests are not confined to this specific fish disease, such as disease modellers.
This volume is recommended for all professionals working on furunculosis, as it represents a unique compendium of research information. For veterinarians, fisheries biologists and fish farm managers, the multidisciplinary approach will provide an expert evaluation of the options available to them, as well as indications of where developments might be expected in each specialist field. Similarly, the paradigmatic nature of the book makes it suitable as a teaching text for students.
