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
Characterization of Edwardsiella tarda strains isolated from turbot, Psetta maxima (L.).
The biochemical, serological and molecular characteristics of a group of 21 Edwardsiella tarda strains isolated from turbot, Psetta maxima, in two different areas of Europe were analysed and comparedExpand
Multilocus Sequence Analysis of the Marine Bacterial Genus Tenacibaculum Suggests Parallel Evolution of Fish Pathogenicity and Endemic Colonization of Aquaculture Systems
ABSTRACT The genus Tenacibaculum, a member of the family Flavobacteriaceae, is an abundant component of marine bacterial ecosystems that also hosts several fish pathogens, some of which are ofExpand
Effectiveness of bivalent vaccines against Aeromonas hydrophila and Lactococcus garvieae infections in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum).
Lactococcus garvieae and Aeromonas hydrophila are bacterial pathogens affecting salmonids and other fish species and cause of heavy losses in aquaculture. Diseases caused by these bacteria can beExpand
Insights into the virulence-related genes of Edwardsiella tarda isolated from turbot in Europe: genetic homogeneity and evidence for vibrioferrin production.
Edwardsiella tarda has long been known as a pathogen that causes severe economic losses in aquaculture industry. Insights gained on E. tarda pathogenesis may prove useful in the development of newExpand
A multiplex PCR for the simultaneous detection of Tenacibaculum maritimum and Edwardsiella tarda in aquaculture.
A specific and sensitive multiplex PCR (mPCR) method was developed as a useful tool for the simultaneous detection of two important flatfish pathogens in marine aquaculture, Tenacibaculum maritimumExpand
Intraspecific genetic variability of Edwardsiella tarda strains from cultured turbot.
Edwardsiella tarda is an enterobacterial fish pathogen that causes mortality in various fish species worldwide. In this study, we analyzed the intraspecific variability in a collection of E. tardaExpand
First isolation of Tenacibaculum maritimum from wedge sole, Dicologoglossa cuneata (Moreau).
The first isolation of Tenacibaculum maritimum from wedge sole, Dicologoglossa cuneata, is reported. The pathogen was recovered from ulcers of cultured fish, from three different outbreaks. The sixExpand
Furunculosis in Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) cultured in a recirculation system
IN recent years, the mariculture industry in Spain has focused on searching for new species to rear other than turbot ( Scophthalmus maximus ), gilthead sea bream ( Sparus aurata ) and sea bass (Expand
