A review of the main bacterial fish diseases in mariculture systems
Abstract The aim of this review is to compile some dispersed literature published about different aspects of the most threatening bacterial diseases occurring in fish cultured in marine watersExpand
Tenacibaculosis infection in marine fish caused by Tenacibaculum maritimum: a review.
Tenacibaculum maritimum is the aetiological agent of an ulcerative disease known as tenacibaculosis, which affects a large number of marine fish species in the world and is of considerable economicExpand
Phenotypic and pathobiological characteristics of Pasteurella piscicida
Abstract Pasteurellosis, caused by Pasteurella piscicida , is one of the most threatening diseases of wild and cultured marine fish, and has been reported from many geographical areas including theExpand
Pathogenic activities of live cells and extracellular products of the fish pathogen Pasteurella piscicida.
The pathobiological activities in vivo and in vitro of live cells and extracellular products (ECP) of eleven Pasteurella piscicida strains of different origin were examined. Infectivity trials showedExpand
Iron uptake by Pasteurella piscicida and its role in pathogenicity for fish.
We evaluated the iron uptake mechanisms in Pasteurella piscicida strains as well as the effect of iron overload on the virulence of these strains for fish. With this aim, the capacity of the strainsExpand
Influence of the capsular layer on the virulence of Pasteurella piscicida for fish.
The influence of the capsule of Pasteurella piscicida on the cell surface properties of this microorganism as well as on the virulence and the capacity of the strains to grow in fish sera wasExpand
Phenotypic, antigenic, and molecular characterization of Pasteurella piscicida strains isolated from fish.
We compared Pasteurella piscicida strains isolated from different fish species in several European countries with strains isolated in Japan and the United States. The taxonomic analysis revealedExpand
Acylhomoserine lactone production and degradation by the fish pathogen Tenacibaculum maritimum, a member of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides (CFB) group.
Tenacibaculum maritimum (formerly Flexibacter maritimus) is a filamentous, biofilm-forming member of the Cytophaga-Flavobacterium-Bacteroides group (or Bacteroidetes), which causes the widelyExpand
Development of an effective Edwardsiella tarda vaccine for cultured turbot (Scophthalmus maximus).
Since 2004 Edwardsiella tarda has become one of the most important emerging pathogens in turbot aquaculture industry in Europe causing serious economic losses. Therefore, this study aimed to designExpand
Molecular Fingerprinting of Fish-Pathogenic Lactococcus garvieae Strains by Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Analysis
ABSTRACT In this work, we used the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) technique to evaluate the genetic diversity in Lactococcus garvieae, an important pathogen for fish. Fifty-seven strainsExpand
