9780128015735: Aquaculture Virology

To date textbooks on viruses infecting fish, crustaceans and molluscs, the three main aquatic animal farmed groups,  have been on the whole “diseases-centric” and individual viral diseases selected based on “epizoo-centric” approaches with little to no coverage of the basic biology of the viruses, in contrast to textbooks on viruses infecting terrestrial – farmed, pet, and free-range (wild) – animals and humans. Despite considerable advances in animal virology in recent years coupled with an economically important global aquaculture industry, knowledge of viruses of animal aquaculture is still sparse and in some cases outdated although these viruses are closely related to well-known virus families. The last book in fish virology (Fish viruses and fish viral diseases 1988, Wolf, K.) was published in the 1980s. A lot of work has been done on fish viruses and many new aquatic animal viruses continue to be discovered. Aquaculture Virology provides the current state of knowledge of aquatic animal viruses within the current virus classification and taxonomic context thereby allowing the reader to draw on the principles of general virology. This book is a systematic and concise resource useful to anyone involved with or looking to move into aquaculture and fisheries. Clinical veterinarians, aquaculture disease practitioners, biologists, farmers, and all those in industry, government or academia who are interested in aquatic animal virology will find this book extremely useful.

  • Provides unique comprehensive information on animal viruses for aquaculture and fisheries
  • Presents high quality illustrations of viral structure, diagrams of viral disease processes, gross pathology and histopathology lesions, and summary tables to aid in understanding
  • Describes aquatic animal viruses of the three major aquatic animals, fish, crustaceans, and molluscs, within the current virus classification and taxonomic context thereby allowing the reader to draw on the principles of general virology

Product Description:

Aquaculture Virology covers the latest information on the main virus families and diseases relevant to aquaculture, along with detailed discussions of specific diseases, all delivered in a systematic and succinct way making this an essential resource to the aquaculture researcher, student, and teacher.

Descriptions of each disease include disease name, structure, and the composition of each virus, classification and virus replication, epidemiology, pathology and immunity, diagnostic methods (gross pathology, histopathology, cell culture, PCR, sequencing, ELISA, etc.) and prevention and control of each disease.

The book is ideal for clinical veterinarians, aquaculture disease practitioners, farmers, and those who are interested in aquatic virology.

  • Provides important and practical insights into achievable agricultural options via case studies
  • Addresses the use of natural resources, technological advances, and management systems to create viable, adaptive economic growth
  • Applies lessons learned in Brazil to improving both economic and ecological resource-sustainable agriculture for other regions and countries

About the Author:

Dr. Frederick S.B. Kibenge is Professor of Virology and since 2009 he is Chairman of the Department of Pathology and Microbiology, Atlantic Veterinary College, University of Prince Edward. He has studied Infectious Salmon Anaemia (ISA) virus (ISAV) since its first occurrence in Eastern Canada in 1997. His laboratory confirmed the first occurrence of ISA in farmed Atlantic salmon in Chile in July 2007, and characterized the virus responsible for the 2007-2010 ISA epizootic in Chile. Dr. Kibenge holds a Veterinary Medicine degree, a PhD in Animal Virology, and a diplomate of the American College of Veterinary Microbiologists, ACVM (Immunology). He has extensive post-doctoral research experience in virology in UK and USA. He currently teaches Veterinary Virology in the DVM curriculum to second year students and in diagnostic clinical rotations in the senior year. He has published extensively on the detection and virology of fish viruses, and has spoken on these subjects at various international forums, including an article in McGraw-Hill Yearbook of Science & Technology 2014, and the online edition AccessScience (http://www.accessscience.com/content/infectious-salmon-anemia/YB140808).

Published over 90 articles, has done extensive research in aquaculture, specifically in Chilean Atlantic Salmon in Chile.
