About this book

The first book to discuss the fish disease which was first diagnosed over a hundred years ago.

This is the sort of book that comes along every once in a while. The sort of book that is not only welcome and long overdue but is also a first in its field. In fact, it is surprising that a subject such as fish furunculosis has not already had a single book dedicated solely to this complex and fascinating disease. The book is a must for anyone working on fish furunculosis. It represents a unique collection of information that will be of value for many years to come. Thoroughly recommended! --C.J. Rodgers in AQUACULTURE
