A skin disease first described more than 100 hundred years ago, furunculosis is the most economically important disease of farmed and wild salmonid fish in most parts of the world. Its effects have been particularly troublesome to fisheries in North America, Europe, and Japan.
Furunculosis: Multidisciplinary Fish Disease Research presents a fascinating insight into the opinions and the controversies which have led to current knowledge of this disease. It is the first book to cover one single fish disease by presenting not just the reviews, but also critical examination of the progress made by various disciplines. The multidisciplinary approach of the book makes it a valuable guide for veterinarians, fisheries biologists, and fish farm managers, as well as an excellent instructional text for students. The volume explores current research strategies and projects what developments can be expected in each field.
