Control of furunculosis in fresh- and seawater farms in Norway

, : Control of furunculosis in fresh- and seawater farms in Norway. Parasites and diseases in natural waters and aquaculture in Nordic countries: 129-130

Furunculosis was introduced to Norway in 1985 with imported Atlantic salmon after 8 years with no outbreaks. Although the initial outbreak was small, it could not be controlled by isolation and antibiotic treatment, and 30 fish farms were affected. A control programme based on slaughter and strict hygiene was used to control the outbreak.

The intraperitoneal LD-50 of Aeromonas salmonicida was 3 times 10...

Although it had previously been described in wild salmon in Norway, the major outbreaks in farms in 1985 resulted from imported...

We describe an injection model for creating furunculosis, caused by Aeromonas salmonicida, in seawater-adapted Atlantic salmon Salmo salar and for testing the efficacy of chemotherapeutants. An injection model was most appropriate for chemotherape...
