Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The aquatic animal diseases caused by pathogen including viruses, bacteria, parasites, and others have posed a significant threat to the aquaculture and caused enormous economic losses to the global aquaculture industry. Recently, many preventive and therapeutic measures including vaccines, probiotics, Chinese herbs, etc. have been explored and applied to control the aquatic animal diseases. The academic exchange of original research on the control of aquatic animal disease is helpful to establish a local and global control strategy against these aquatic animal diseases.

This Special Issue is focused on the research and progress in all aspects of aquatic animal disease. We invite you to submit original or review articles that report emerging aquatic animal diseases as well as innovative strategies and measures for the determination, prevention and control of aquatic animal diseases. We shall also accept original research articles and review articles about host-pathogen interaction relationship, disease-resistance genes, epidemiology, pathogenesis and pathology of aquatic animal diseases. This Special Issue will provide new knowledge about the aquatic animal diseases, and promote the development of aquatic animal disease prevention and control.
