About this book

This is the first comprehensive collection of molecular techniques for diagnosing diseases important in the culture and conservation of salmonid fish. It brings together leading authors in this rapidly growing field and provides an overview of the present state of the art from the perspective of practical application of these methods in diagnostic laboratories. This book will serve as a useful handbook for diagnosticians and researchers involved in fish disease, particularly laboratories establishing these new diagnostic tests for the first time, and provides valuable background information on many of the diseases and their causative organisms.
