This new, fully updated and expanded fourth edition builds upon the success of the previous editions which have made Fish Pathology the best known and most respected book in the field, worldwide. Our knowledge of fish pathology has changed dramatically over the past decade, and as aquaculture continues to grow, this volume will help all those involved in the industry to define, to diagnose and ultimately control, in a sustainable way, the new diseases, which will assuredly manifest themselves.
Commencing with a chapter covering the aquatic environment, the book provides comprehensive details of the anatomy and physiology of teleosts, pathophysiology and systematic physiology, immunology, neoplasia, virology, parasitology, bacteriology, mycology, nutritional pathology and other non-infectious diseases. A final chapter provides extremely useful details of the most widely-used and trusted laboratory methods in the area. Much new information is included in this new edition, including enhanced coverage of any diseases which have become commercially significant since the publication of the previous edition.
Beautifully illustrated in full colour throughout with many exceptional photographs, Fish Pathology, Fourth Edition, is an essential purchase for fish pathologists, fish veterinarians, biologists, microbiologists and immunologists, including all those working in diagnostic services worldwide. Personnel working in fish farming and fisheries will also find much of great use and interest within the book’s covers. All libraries in universities and research establishments where biological and veterinary sciences are studied and taught should have copies of this landmark publication.
