About this book

As well as discussing all kinds of diseases - viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic and neoplastic - of all kinds of aquatic species, this book also covers the toxicology pathology of chemically-induced lesions in fishes and invertebrates and the environmental roles or impacts of disease at the population as well as organismic levels.
