Fish Diseases and Disorders, 2nd Edition (Volumes 1 to 3)
Volume 1: Protozoan and Metazoan Infections
by Patrick T.K. Woo
Fish is the principal source of protein for people in many parts of the world, particularly in developing countries. While most fish are caught from nature, aquaculture or fish farming is now making a significant contribution to total fish production. More intensive conditions of aquaculture often result in a higher incidence of fish diseases and disorders. As in the first edition, the focus of this second edition is on protozoan and metazoan parasites that cause disease in fish. Significant changes to this second edition include the addition of 3 new chapters and 4 of the original chapters have new authors.
Volume 2: Non-infectious Disorders
by John F. Leatherland, Patrick T.K. Woo
Written by leading authorities in the field, this new edition of Volume 2 in the successful Fish Diseases and Disorders trilogy has been thoroughly updated with new research and contributions. Focusing largely on finfish, it covers non-infectious disorders of development, growth and physiology of wild and captive species, including genetic conditions, respiratory disorders, stress physiology, environmental factors and a new contribution on the relationship between welfare issues and disorders associated with intensive fish culture. The book is indispensable for zoologists, fish health specialists and veterinarians, researchers and students, and those involved with fisheries and aquaculture.
Volume 3: Viral, Bacterial and Fungal Infections
by Patrick T.K. Woo, David W. Bruno
This third and final volume in the acclaimed Fish Diseases and Disorders trilogy addresses infectious diseases of finfish and shellfish caused by viruses, bacteria and fungi. Topics covered include infectious pancreatic necrosis virus, infectious hematopoictic necrosis virus, viral diseases of cold and warm-water fish, rickettsial and chlamydial infections, furunculosis, motile aeromonads, vibriosis, flavobacterial diseases and shellfish diseases. Written by experts in each discipline and updated throughout to reflect new developments in the field, including new chapters on alphaviruses, oncogenic viruses and genomics and proteomics, this is a must-have reference for fish health specialists and veterinarians, microbiologists, zoologists and researchers and students in aquaculture.
