This study examines the world's major marine and brackish water aquaculture production industries and provides estimates of the potential economic costs attributable to a range of key parasite pathogens using 498 specific events for the purposes of illustration and estimation of costs.

In infected fish, cellular changes in the epithelium underlying the bodies of worms were noted typified by an elevation in the number of mucous and rodlet cells and a reduction in the numbers of chloride cells.
Review of climate change impacts on marine aquaculture in the UK and Ireland
This review assesses current knowledge of the threats and opportunities of climate change for aquaculture in the UK and Ireland, focusing on the most commonly farmed species, blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) and Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
Phylogenetic and antigenic characterization of new fish nodavirus isolates from Europe and Asia.
Nominal species of the genus Gyrodactylus von Nordmann 1832 (Monogenea: Gyrodactylidae), with a list of principal host species
While the majority of Gyrodactylus species (59%) are recorded from single hosts, some have a much broader broad range and need to be considered for inclusion in a broader range classification.
Survey of actinosporean types (Myxozoa) belonging to seven collective groups found in a freshwater salmon farm in Northern Scotland.
A study of the actinosporean fauna of oligochaetes from a freshwater salmon farm in Northern Scotland was carried out from October 1996 to August 1998 and found twenty-one types, including one type of triactinomyxon, which was released from unidentified immature oligoch aetes.
The use of morphometric characters to discriminate specimens of laboratory-reared and wild populations of Gyrodactylus salaris and G. thymalli (Monogenea).
Populations of Gyrodactylus identified by mtDNA can also be discriminated using morphometric landmark distances, according to morphometric methods.
A revised description of Gyrodactylus cichlidarum Paperna, 1968 (Gyrodactylidae) from the Nile tilapia, Oreochromis niloticus niloticus (Cichlidae), and its synonymy with G. niloticus Cone, Arthur et…
A comparison of G. cichlidarum from both hosts with the holotype and several paratypes of Gyrodactylus niloticus Cone, Arthur et Bondad-Reantaso, 1995 cited as parasitizing captive stocks of Nile tilapia in the Philippines revealed the two species to be synonymous.
Isolation of nodavirus from Scottish farmed halibut, Hippoglossus hippoglossus (L).
Fish nodaviruses belonging to the genus betano-davirus are the aetiological agents of viral nervousnecrosis (VNN), also referred to as viral encephalo-pathy and retinopathy (VER), or ﬁsh…
Description of three new species of Gyrodactylus von Nordmann, 1832 (Monogenea) parasitising Oreochromis niloticus niloticus (L.) and O. mossambicus (Peters) (Cichlidae)

It is confirmed that Nile and Mozambique tilapia harbour a number of different species of Gyrodactylus, with G. cichlidarum being the most frequently encountered and being associated with mortalities of juvenile O. n.
