Special Issue Information
Over 80% of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. Fish are ubiquitous inhabitants of this ecosystem. In both natural environments and in aquaculture, disease has a serious impact on fish. Disease is universally recognized as one of the most serious threats to the commercial success of aquaculture. In the absence of effective husbandry management, disease prevention strategies and appropriate biosecurity measures, infectious diseases will continue to challenge the sustainability of global aquaculture. Various strategies are used to diagnose and reduce the impact of fish disease, and I am pleased to invite you to contribute to this Special Issue of Fishes titled “Diagnosis and Treatment of Disease in Fish”, which will address related topics.
Areas of interest regularly covered by the journal include:
- Diagnostic methods;
- Pathogenic biology;
- Host-pathogen relationships
Prof. Dr. Bei Wang
