This book presents the gross pathology of the most commonly encountered diseases and syndromes of fish in an organ system-based approach. It provides an overview of the diseases and disorders of tropical, ornamental, bait and food fish from freshwater, brackish and marine environments. Readers will gain a broader understanding of the basic biology of infectious and non-infectious diseases in fish, as well as novel diagnostic techniques and innovative disease control methods.

Nineteen chapters by expert international contributors provide the veterinarian, fish health professional, fisheries biologist and fish researcher with an understanding of anatomy, water quality, diagnostic methodology, and basic clinical medicine of fish. Each organ system chapter provides
