Salmonid alphaviruses (SAVs), which include the aetiological agents of salmon pancreas disease (SPD) in farmed Atlantic salmon Salmo salar L. and sleeping disease (SD) in rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss (Walbaum), are significant viral pathogens of European salmonid aquaculture. SAV is horizontally transmitted and the virus can survive for extended periods in seawater. A lack of convincing evidence for vertical transmission coupled to the fact that the SPD virus (SPDV) occurs in historically… Expand
Detection of salmonid alphavirus RNA in Celtic and Irish Sea flatfish.
TLDR
SAV sequence analysis supported the fact that real-time RT-PCR detections were specific and further characterised the detected viruses within SAV Subtype I, the predominant subtype found in farmed salmon in Ireland. Expand
Salmonid alphavirus subtype I isolated from clinically-diseased Atlantic salmon, Salmo salar, in freshwater culture
TLDR
This is the first published description of a confirmed clinical field case of SAV with pathology consistent with PD in freshwater Atlantic salmon at a freshwater hatchery on the west coast of Scotland. Expand
Emergence of Salmonid Alphavirus Genotype 2 in Norway—Molecular Characterization of Viral Strains Circulating in Norway and Scotland
Pancreas disease (PD) and sleeping disease (SD), caused by an alphavirus, are endemic in European salmonid aquaculture, causing significant mortality, reduced growth and poor flesh quality. In 2010,Expand
The epidemiology of pancreas disease in salmonid aquaculture: a summary of the current state of knowledge.
TLDR
All available information suggests that the current fallowing procedures are adequate to prevent agent survival within the environment through the fallowing period and thus that a repeated disease outbreak at the same site is due to a new agent introduction. Expand
Genome-wide target enriched viral sequencing reveals extensive ‘hidden’ salmonid alphavirus diversity in farmed and wild fish populations
TLDR
It is concluded that SAV transmission and evolutionary dynamics are more complex than recognized currently, and should be routinely characterized at a genome-wide level to capture the true diversity associated with disease outbreaks, providing stronger information for decision-making on disease control. Expand
Multiple introductions of salmonid alphavirus from a wild reservoir have caused independent and self-sustainable epizootics in aquaculture.
TLDR
The comparison of these dates with known historical events suggested that all six subtypes diverged prior to the twentieth century, earlier than the first attempts to introduce and farm rainbow trout in Europe, and the location of the wild reservoir is in or around the North Sea. Expand
Togaviruses of Fish
TLDR
SAV is the causative agent of pancreas disease and sleeping disease in salmonid fish and farmed Atlantic salmon and rainbow trout in seawater in northern Europe are affected. Expand
Rapid and sensitive detection of salmonid alphavirus using TaqMan real-time PCR.
TLDR
This TaqMan real-time PCR assay provides a rapid, sensitive, and specific detection method for SAV, offering improved technical support for the clinical diagnosis and epidemiology of SAV. Expand
Detection of aquareovirus in farmed Tasmanian atlantic salmon (Salmo salar)
TLDR
This thesis focused on the detection and identification of Tasmanian Atlantic salmon aquareovirus (TSRV), which is one of the few viral agents of Atlantic salmon endemic in Tasmania, and revealed preliminary evidence of vertical transmission of TSRV from brood-stocks to eggs and horizontal transmission from farmed salmon to wild fish. Expand
Salmonid alphavirus replicon is functional in fish, mammalian and insect cells and in vivo in shrimps (Litopenaeus vannamei).
TLDR
It is shown that a SAVbased replicon could express proteins when driven by the subgenomic promoter in vitro in cells from fish, mammals and insects, as well as in vivo in shrimps. Expand

Alphavirus infections in salmonids--a review.
TLDR
This paper aims to draw together both historical and current knowledge of the diseases caused by SAVs, the viruses, their diagnosis and control, and to discuss the differential diagnosis of similar pathologies seen in cardiomyopathy syndrome and heart and skeletal muscle inflammation of Atlantic salmon. Expand
Prospective longitudinal studies of salmonid alphavirus infections on two Atlantic salmon farms in Ireland; evidence for viral persistence.
TLDR
In both outbreaks of pancreas disease in Atlantic salmon, partial genome sequence of the causative viruses were identical to SAV strains detected in previous populations of AS on each of the study farms, including populations with which the study populations overlapped in time and space. Expand
Sensitive and specific detection of Salmonid alphavirus using real-time PCR (TaqMan).
TLDR
Three real-time PCR assays for all known subtypes of salmonid alphavirus have been developed and demonstrated the assays to be highly sensitive and specific, detecting <0.1TCID50 of virus stocks and highly reproducible over a wide range of RNA input. Expand
Genetic stability within the Norwegian subtype of salmonid alphavirus (family Togaviridae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among 20 NSAV isolates, based on a 1221-nt-long segment covering part of the capsid gene, E3, and part ofThe E2 gene, collected over a period of eight years, are investigated, revealing genetic homogeneity among NSAVisolates, including those from northern Norway. Expand
Experimental infection of Atlantic salmon Salmo salar pre-smolts by i.p. injection with new Irish and Norwegian salmonid alphavirus (SAV) isolates: a comparative study.
TLDR
Using real-time RT-PCR, pancreas disease virus (PDV)-specific RNA was detected frequently in serum samples up to 14 d p.i., but was negative at later sampling points when antibody production had begun, and Virus may be detected only during the acute phase using both methods. Expand
Nucleotide sequence variation in salmonid alphaviruses from outbreaks of salmon pancreas disease and sleeping disease.
TLDR
The occurrence of the different subtype SAVs appeared to have a geographical basis, which may prove useful in future molecular epidemiology studies of SAV-induced disease outbreaks. Expand
Distribution of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus in wild fish species of the North Sea, north east Atlantic Ocean and Irish Sea.
TLDR
A surveillance programme was initiated on the occurrence and distribution of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) in wild marine fish, covering the North Sea, the Atlantic waters off the north and west coasts of Scotland and the Irish Sea, and a previously unreported host species, poor cod Trisopterus minutus.

Phylogenetic analyses and molecular epidemiology of European salmonid alphaviruses (SAV) based on partial E2 and nsP3 gene nucleotide sequences.
TLDR
Analysis of the origin of several clusters of strains with identical E2 and nsP3 sequences strongly support horizontal transmission of virus between farms and aquaculture companies and evidence in support of vertical transmission was not found. Expand
Experimental infection of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss with viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus isolates from European marine and farmed fishes.
TLDR
The susceptibility of rainbow trout Oncorhynchus mykiss to infection with various isolates of viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV) was examined, supporting the view that they originated from the marine environment. Expand
Genetic population structure of marine viral haemorrhagic septicaemia virus (VHSV).
TLDR
A marine origin of VHSV in rainbow trout aquaculture is suggested, and the capacity for molecular phylogenetic analysis to resolve complex epidemiological problems is demonstrated. Expand
