Several parasites and other infectious agents frequently reported by the WGPDMO in the annual update of disease trends (ICES WGPDMO reports 1999–2015) have the potential to be harmful to human health if ingested in unprocessed or inadequately/partly processed seafood. These include, but are not limited to, larval stages of the nematodes Anisakis simplex and Pseudoterranova decipiens. For them the risk to human health may occur in two ways: gastrointestinal infections with the possibility of… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Incidence and distribution of amoebic gill disease (AGD) — An epidemiological review
TLDR
This review summarizes and analyses three decades of AGD research and outbreaks, with focus on the causal triad of pathogen, host and environment, to provide an improved understanding ofAGD including practical applications.
Effect of repeated exposure to AQUI‐S® on the viability and growth of Neoparamoeba perurans
TLDR
The effect of repeat exposure to anaesthesia, a necessary requirement when following disease progression in individual fish, on N. perurans was investigated and AQUI‐S® was found to be a suitable choice for in vivo ectoparasitic challenges with N.perurans.
Disease management mitigates risk of pathogen transmission from maricultured salmonids
Open marine net pens facilitate virus and sea lice transfer, occasionally leading to infections and outbreaks of disease in farmed salmon. A review of 3 salmon pathogens (infectious salmon anaemia
INFLUENCE OF PATHOGENS, FISH-RELATED CHARACTERISTICS, AND ENVIRONMENTAL FACTORS ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF SKIN ULCERATIONS IN WILD COMMON DAB (LIMANDA LIMANDA) FROM THE NORTH SEA
TLDR
The research suggested the involvement of multiple factors in the development of skin ulcerations in common dab and endorsed the effects of changing environment and human influence on the marine ecosystem through activities such as fishing.
Morphology and pathology of the ectoparasitic copepod, Nicothoë astaci (‘lobster louse’) in the European lobster, Homarus gammarus
TLDR
The morphology and pathology of the parasitic copepod, Nicothoë astaci (the ‘lobster louse’) in its host, the European lobster, Homarus gammarus are examined, suggesting that the parasite interferes with the cellular defence and haemostatic mechanisms of the lobster in order to maintain invasion of the host.
Site-specific disease profiles in fish and their use in environmental monitoring
TLDR
Assessment of prevalence for the different diseases allowed for development of a grad- ing system that assigned relative harm scores for pop- ulations existing at a particular site, and grading of harm scores into site types may provide an assessment tool for managers to identify sites of concern and to cross- correlate disease with potential causal factors.
Ecological Biomarkers: Indicators of Ecotoxicological Effects
TLDR
There is a strong case to focus on biological responses (biomarkers) linked directly or indirectly to reproduction such as impairments of energy metabolism, endocrine disruption, genotoxicity, and behavioral disturbances which could contribute to predictive risk assessments of new and existing chemicals.
Contaminants in marine ecosystems: developing an integrated indicator framework using biological-effect techniques
Thain, J. E., Vethaak, A. D., and Hylland, K. 2008. Contaminants in marine ecosystems: developing an integrated indicator framework using biological-effect techniques. - ICES Journal of Marine
First evidence of explosives and their degradation products in dab (Limanda limanda L.) from a munition dumpsite in the Baltic Sea.
TLDR
The results prove that toxic explosive compounds from a dumpsite in the Baltic Sea are accumulated by flatfish and may therefore pose a risk to fish health and human food safety.
Marine Strategy Framework Directive Task Group 8 Report: Contaminants and pollution effects
The Marine Strategy Framework Directive (2008/56/EC) (MSFD) requires that the European Commission (by 15 July 2010) should lay down criteria and methodological standards to allow consistency in

TLDR
This review summarizes and considers this recent evidence linking fish farming to human pathogenic parasites, and discusses the need and opportunities for prevention and control of these zoonoses.
A review of mycobacteriosis in marine fish.
TLDR
In this review, much of what is known about mycobacteriosis in marine fish is summarized with particular attention to an epizootic in striped bass, Morone saxatilis, (Walbaum), in Chesapeake Bay, USA.
Update on the Human Broad Tapeworm (Genus Diphyllobothrium), Including Clinical Relevance
TLDR
Diphyllobothrium is the most important fish-borne zoonosis caused by a cestode parasite, and its definitive hosts include piscivorous birds and mammals, which represent a significant zoonotic reservoir.

TLDR
Control strategies should be based on the education of the consumers, farmers and shepherds, the improvement of farming conditions, the development of more sensitive methods to detect these parasites in slaughtered animals and in foodstuff, a control of sewage sludge on pastures and of drinking water resources.
