Recent Advances in Our Knowledge of the Myxozoa
It is indicated that the Myxozoa are closely related to Cnidaria, and marine taxa at the genus level branch separately from genera that usually infect freshwater fishes; taxa cluster more by development and tissue location than by spore morphology.
The Magnitude of Global Marine Species Diversity
Histopathological biomarkers in estuarine fish species for the assessment of biological effects of contaminants.
Survey of estrogenic activity in United Kingdom estuarine and coastal waters and its effects on gonadal development of the flounder Platichthys flesus

Whether estrogens and their mimics are present in marine waters at concentrations that can produce biological responses in fish and, if so, whether the effects are likely to be harmful to populations and communities through changes in reproductive and other physiological processes is investigated.
The extent of oestrogenic contamination in the UK estuarine and marine environments--further surveys of flounder.
Biodiversity: Disease threat to European fish

This threat is caused by an infectious pathogen, a rosette-like intracellular eukaryotic parasite that is a deadly, non-specific agent carried by healthy Asian fish, and could decrease fish biodiversity in Europe, as well as having implications for commercial aquaculture.

Bacteria from the family Francisellaceae are implicated as the cause of disease in farmed and wild fish and shellfish species such as Atlantic cod, tilapia, Oreochromis spp.
Microsporidia: diverse, dynamic, and emergent pathogens in aquatic systems.
Isolation of a cyprinid herpesvirus 2 from goldfish, Carassius auratus (L.), in the UK.
Haematopoietic necrosis virus was isolated during disease outbreaks in goldfish, Carassius auratus, at an ornamental fish retail site in southern England in 2004 and revealed typical herpesvirus-like particles measuring 100 nm in diameter.
