Fish are critically important to the welfare of this planet and its occupants, the health of both wild and captive fish populations paramount to our survival. This book presents the gross pathology of the most commonly encountered diseases and syndromes of fish in an organ system-based approach. It provides an overview of the diseases and disorders of tropical, ornamental, bait and food fish from freshwater, brackish and marine environments. Readers will gain a broader understanding of the basic biology of infectious and non-infectious diseases in fish, as well as novel diagnostic techniques and innovative disease control methods.

Nineteen chapters by expert international contributors provide the veterinarian, fish health professional, fisheries biologist and fish researcher with an understanding of anatomy, water quality, diagnostic methodology, and basic clinical medicine of fish. Each organ system chapter provides

  • an overview of the most common diseases or syndromes
  • the etiological agent
  • route of transmission
  • typical host range
  • clinical presentation
  • possible differentials
  • most current means of diagnosis for that particular problem
  • potential management and control methods

This text will serve as a resource for the identification and control of fish diseases in a multitude of settings, from aquarium fish, to home ponds, to aquaculture species, to research fish and to even wild fish populations.
