The first edition was published in 1970. This is a rewritten and expanded current assessment of the status of knowledge about marine fish and shellfish diseases. Volume 1, Diseases of marine fish, addresses those diseases of greatest importance from the point of view of effects on fish populations, especially those of economic significance. The main sections cover diseases caused by microbial pathogens and animal parasites; noninfectious diseases; diseases of captive fish; and marine fish diseases and humans. Volume 2, Diseases of shellfish, addresses the same subjects from the perspective of shellfish pathology. The volumes are available individually at $89. Annotation c.
