Diseases of Bivalves: Historical and Current Perspectives is a novel reference covering all known diseases of cultured and fished bivalve mollusks from around the world. Written by a renowned expert in the field of shellfish, the author presents a historical perspective of disease discovery, explaining when and where each disease first occurred and identified to current research findings. This reference describes the infectious agent that causes each disease and environmental conditions that promote infection symptoms and signs of the disease in the host, both as noted in individual animals and in the affected populations, and resultant morbidity and mortality of infected populations. The book offers past and current possible prevention and management methods to control disease in current and projected geographical locations. This is a complete resource for aquatic and veterinary pathologists, aquaculturists, government regulators, disease specialists and researchers, bivalve researchers, and students alike. Diseases include Metazoan Disease, Viral diseases, Fungal Disease, and more.
