This is the first book to give complete coverage of the field of fish vaccinology. Written by acknowledged experts from 15 different countries, the reviews in this volume not only provide the theoretical basis for the vaccination of fish, but also presents a wealth of practical aspects. The main topics covered include: the immune system of fish; methods of vaccine delivery; immunization with bacterial, viral and parasite antigens; antigen production; methods of vaccine evaluation; regulatory aspects, licensing of fish vaccines in Europe and America; environmental effects; and vaccination strategies. Compiling the most up-to-date and comprehensive information on how to protect fish from infectious diseases, this book should become the "Bible" of fish vaccinology. It should be of great interest to veterinarians, fish biologists, fish pathologists, manufacturers of fish vaccines and anyone concerned with fish health. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
