Despite their significant contribution to global marine fisheries, relatively little information is available on the pathogen profile of commercially exploited decapod crustacean populations. Most of the information published relates to adult (fished) subpopulations, with almost nothing known about disease processes and mortality drivers in juveniles. The seasonal profile of pathogens in non-fished (prerecruit) and fished (recruit) subpopulations of Cancer pagurus, a major target fishery target… CONTINUE READING
