About this product
- DescriptionSignificant advances in the field of microflora of aquatic animals, including fish and invertebrates, demands a practical laboratory text with the current methods for the bacteriological analysis of health and disease in fish and shellfish. Practical rather than theoretical, this manual is useful for individuals working in aquatic, environmental, and veterinary science, and in aquaculture, public health, and aquatic research. Methods are presented for the isolation and identification of bacterial pathogens in fish and shellfish and zootic pathogens in shellfish. The step-by-step presentation of procedures guides students in aquatic health and newcomers to the diagstic laboratory, while providing a refresher course for the more experienced laboratory employee. Numerous tables and illustrations further assist readers.Thorough coverage of basic bacteriological techniques ensures that even the inexperienced aquatic health diagstician will need additional resources. The effective, easy-to-follow organization of the Finfish and Shellfish Bacteriology Manual make it the primary sourcebook for any laboratory. Whether it's used as an occasional quick reference by the experienced fish diagstician, or as a tool to build diagstic capabilities from the ground up, this book rises to the challenge.
