Description

This text presents a collection of 16 papers from a July 2001 workshop held in Honolulu, Hawaii to gather information about biosecurity measures used against the spread of bacterial diseases, viral diseases, and parasites in production systems for major aquaculture species, especially through early detection and prevention. A sampling of topics: pandemics and the aquatic environment, bi-directional response between stress and infection linked by neuroimmune change, control strategy for viral disease of salmonids and flounder, a microbiological approach to the alleviation and prevention of disease in shrimp farms in Central and South America, and biosecurity and health management for intensive mollusk culture.
